Gaspe Peninsula

Gaspe Peninsula

Located on the south side of the St. Lawrence, the Gaspé Peninsula, with its rugged but breathtaking landform, is the continuation of the Appalachian Mountain range where they plunge into the sea. Gaspé encompasses many parks and reserves, and its forests, beaches, cliffs and meadows form an immense sanctuary for fauna and flora. It is a true Garden of Eden, where one can absorb the natural beauty of the environment.

With so many various ethnic groups creating Gaspé, you will find a wonderful mix of traditions, cultures, culinary delights and colorful accents. See why it was called ‘Gespeg’ meaning ‘the place where the land ends’.
