Top 3: Your Photos of National Parks and Natural Sites on Instagram

Nature and wide-open spaces are featured in many travel photos taken in the maritime regions of Québec. This isn’t surprising, since our regions boast lots of beautiful scenery! We recently put out a call for your Instagram photos in our newsletter and on social media: here then is our selection of the top three photos of national parks and natural sites taken in our regions.

Percé UNESCO Global Geopark

As you can see from this photo, the suspended glass platform in the Percé UNESCO Global Geopark offers a stunning view! If you have the opportunity to visit this site, you can admire some of the treasures in Parc national de l’Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé from up high as well as see the village of Percé from another angle!

Îles de la Madeleine

Wouldn’t you love to trade places with this person? The Îles de la Madeleine offer over 300 km (190 mi.) of superb beaches—more than enough space for everyone! As the locals and visitors will tell you, there are many spots on the Islands where you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself!

Île aux Lièvres

Located in the middle of the St. Lawrence, Île aux Lièvres is an unspoiled island that is home to colonies of seabirds. You can camp in this natural paradise or stay in an inn or cottage, as well as enjoy hiking trails through stunning scenery.

When visiting our regions, be sure to keep your camera or smartphone close at hand: there’s so much beauty to capture in our national parks and natural sites!

Share your photos with us on Instagram and tag them with the hashtags #quebecbythesea and #quebecmaritime!
