Having been spoilt by the Parks in the Rockies, this isn't in the same scale but great in its own right and being right on the Atlantic makes it special. There are plenty of walks and other adventures to be had but you really need...More

We did a short easy hike off of the cruise ship. It was cold, dreary and windy so not the best time for an opinion. I didn't feel we had good views as we only walked along the water. If one went into the forest,...More

The reason we stayed at Motel du Phare was to visit this park. It is a great place for hiking and viewing nature

I can't wait to return with my family. Two highlights for me - the hike up to the observation tower is a must do! I also took a kayak tour to see the seals. Beautiful.

We stayed 3 nights in Gaspe, which gave us about 2 full and 1 half days to see this park and the area around it. Unfortunately we had some rainy overcast weather for part of that time and did not see and do everything we...More

Normally I would give this Park and excellent, but when we were there they were working on the roads and it was a bit of a mess. At times we were not sure whether we were going the correct way to reach the trails we...More

The walkway in the Penouille section was a nice walk. The hike to Land's End requires a hike that is mostly boring; there is a big hill just before you get there, so need to be in really good shape to make that last trek....More

Well, we had to cut this tour short due to rain. It was cold and I didn't know that this trail followed the waterway. I couldn't really look up and see anything as I had to be aware of tree roots and bear poop. Going...More

The hike we took was somewhat challenging, but the views along the way were amazing ! At the end of the long hike was Land's End. Upon seeing the incredible scenery, all the huffing and puffing was quickly forgotten. Pay this park a visit when...More

My husband and I simply want to drive the coastline of the Park on our trip in October. Can anyone tell me the distance in km. or the time it would take if we didn't make any stops. We will of course but I am just trying to figure time now. Thanks. No we do not hike. We have mobility issues and will stop only where we can easily access a view. Thanks again.

We will arrive on a Norwegian cruise ship, and be ashore at Gaspe from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Is there bus service or taxi available to drop us off at Parc Forillon in the morning and get us back to the pier by 4 p.m.?

I don't know about a bus service but as I travelled before with cruise ships, I'm confident there will be taxis or shuttles waiting at the pier to use, as they know there will be costumers for them. Best to check on board... More
