On the northern side of the Gaspé Peninsula, the Haute-Gaspésie sector features a series of charming coastal villages nestled in bays and coves between spectacular cliffs and the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Be sure to explore the majestic Chic-Choc at the heart of the region: this incredible natural playground for hikers is home to the highest peaks in Québec and the only caribou herd south of the St. Lawrence.
Gather around a fire with family or friends to recount your adventures and stories of the day. Listen to the sound of the waves as you share laughs and roasted marshmallows under a starry sky—a great way to end a wonderful day!
