In the heart of Gaspésie, the Chic-Choc Appalachian chain is the backbone of this forest-covered peninsula. Its geographical location along the edge of a protected territory explains the remarkable diversity of wildlife found here. Take the time to visit this little corner of paradise where you can enjoy a variety of activities.

Many species of mammals frequent this territory, including moose, black bears, snowshoe hare and porcupines, making it an excellent spot for wildlife observation. Keep an eye out as you hike, and you may spot various species in their natural habitat. You can also stop to pick mushrooms, blueberries or raspberries along the way. And be sure to admire to the stunning views of the McGerrigle Mountains!
