Be a witness to the kind of beauty that stops you in your tracks. The monumental Gaspé Peninsula juts into the Gulf of St. Lawrence in an exhilarating display of rugged coastline, lush parklands, diverse wildlife habitat, picturesque villages and renowned geologic wonders. Listen to the sounds of surf on pebble beaches, watch high-flying seabirds dive and whirl, marvel at the monolithic arched rock that dominates sweeping vistas, and soak up history and culture in the birthplace of French Quebec. It was here that French navigator Jacques Cartier landed in 1534 and claimed the region for France.
