In the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula, the Chic-Choc Appalachian chain is the backbone of this forest-covered peninsula. Its geographical location, at the periphery of a protected territory, explains its remarkable diversity of wildlife. Take the time to visit this little corner of paradise, whatever activity you choose to undertake.

A large variety of mammals frequent this territory including moose, black bear, snowshoe hare and porcupine, making it an excellent spot for wildlife observation. You might spot one of these mammals in its natural habitat while hiking. You can also stop to pick mushrooms, blueberries or raspberries along the way. And don't forget to admire to the stunning view of the McGerrigle Mountains!
