Motorcycling in Gaspésie – River and Chic-Chocs

| 1 day |227 km | from Matane to New Richmond

Adapted from the brochure The Motorcycle Tourist Circuits of Gaspésie

As the St. Lawrence River widens into the sea, this scenic drive will take you through charming coastal villages.

In Cap-Chat, you cannot miss the impressive windmill park that dominates the landscape. Further east, beachesparks and hiking trails can be found along the coast near Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, the gateway to Gaspésie National Park.

The winding road that crosses magnificent Gaspésie National Park follows the Cascapédia River, which is considered one of the 10 best salmon rivers in the world in terms of the size of the fish. This is also a great place for hiking and wildlife observation. Keep your eyes peeled—you are in moose country!

Riding south, you will end your trip in New Richmond, in the Chaleur Bay region.
