This is a beautiful park. There is way more to see than we were able to get to in the half-day that we spent there, but left quite satisfied. The information center is good but make sure to take the interpretative walk around the center and then drive down to the lookout. The old fishing village takes you back over... More

Forillon preserves the natural beauty and history of this area. It is an undiscovered jewel that many North Americans have yet to discover. The hiking trails are well marked. The story of the government's expropriation is well documented in an honest fashion with a monument to all the families that were affected! Caped Rosier' lighthouse and local history is singular....

Hiking is plentiful with all levels of difficulty. Beautiful views, Wildlife is plentiful. Park rangers share interesting stories and give informative lectures... especially enjoyed the beaver talk.

I can't say enough about this attraction. Cap Bon Ami was one of the the prettiest settings I've ever seen. At the southern access to the park the 4 km walk to Land's End and the lighthouse at the easternmost point in the park was really a special trek. We saw a couple of whales, many seals, diving gannets, and... More

Hiked in the park. The views were stunning, breathtaking and awesome. Got lots of pictures. Saw lots of seals and 2 whales. It was a sunny fall day. A great way to spend a day.

While driving on the road from the North Side Entrance to Cap Bon-Ami, we encountered a wandering moose, a highlight of our exploration of this wonderful park. From Cap Bon-Ami, the view to Cap Gaspe is simply gorgeous. Another must-do trail takes you to the very end of Cap Gaspe where we saw whales not too far from the shore.

Like I said in the post title, the water fall (or la chute) is nice, not as high as some, but it is nice and dynamic and should be experienced. The quality of the foot path is nice and the loop, along with the view balcony, was really enjoyable.

I was visiting Forillon National Park with friend and stayed on campground at oTENTik. It is wonderful park and amazing place for nature and wildlife lovers. oTENTik is very comfortable way to spend some time in Park. It has everything needed- electricity, propan bbq, water is 10 metres away, beds, cooking and eating accessories, washrooms and showers very close. When... More
