The provincial park of Gaspé is a jewel of 802 km2, where the potential varies with the altitude; from boreal forests to subalpine forests, to tundra and much more. With a little luck, it will be possible to see a herd of wood caribous who like to live at the top of the mountains.
The Forillon national park marks the end of the chain of the Appalachian mountains, which have their roots in the southern United-States. The scenery was modeled, millions of years ago, by the action of the waves combined with the power of erosion.
