“A GEM AT LAND'S END”

Forillon National Park
Ranked #1 of 24 things to do in Gaspe
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 20, 2014

I visited all there was to visit without having to walk more than 1 km each time and it was fantastic. Especially Penouille, Fort Péninsule and Cap Bon-Ami ! Breath-taking scenery, incredible history, clean and spacious camping sites, opportunities to watch wildlife and all that at a reasonable price. If you have good feet and heart, climbing hikes are also offered to you. I went at mid-August and the weather was so nice and hot that I even swam at Penouille ! Also possible to arrange for whale-watching excursions (seeing whales never guaranteed though), to rent sea kayaks or to go diving. If you want a decent meal, I recommend 2 places nearby: Le Baleinier at Cap-aux-Os (basic food but well prepared - had wonderful French bread for breakfast and great lobster club sandwich for lunch) and Le Café de l'Anse at l'Anse-au-Griffon (had great smoked fish and cod cakes). And not to be neglected: everyone is nice and will answer to you in English, even if approximate.

Breath taking scenery. Hardly anyone around. Campsite is comfy and spacious. Unique bird habitats. Lots of hiking opportunities. Great areas to relax and watch the seaside. Campsite is near the beach and the town of Gaspe is close by.

Just amazing. Well maintained, natural, a focus on walking, not driving to sites. We went whale watching and saw a humpback whale. All around great experience.

We arrived in Gaspe on the motorcycle and shortly after were hit with thunder and torrential rain! We were traveling with two bikes and a car, so after checking into our motel, we all climbed into the car and headed for the park. We were glad that we were not on the bikes, because there was road work going on and the roads were really terrible in spots. It was a nice drive, but couldn't get out to do much exploring and picture taking. What we did see was nice, but I'm sure there are more breathtaking spots if you get out and explore a bit.
