Gaspe, Walking in Forillon National Park
This easy walking tour informs guests about Gaspésie’s unforgotten past and fishing families’ way of life. A visit to Forillon National Park is sure to be a unique adventure. The tip of Forillon, which was declared a Canadian national park in order to preserve the wild beauty of its coast, reveals various geological formations and phenomena up to 450 million years old. Its majestic landscapes cover a 152 square mile-area that is carved out of the sea, cliffs and mountains. Here, where the land joins the sea, are born pebble beaches, dizzying cliffs, small coves, rocky capes and fine sand beaches. The presence of 10 different rock formations, colonies of seabirds and arctic-alpine plants give this park its unique character. The trail called Une Tournée Dans Les Parages (A Walk Around the Area) will start near the fishing harbor, at the Grande-Grave Heritage Site, where the Hyman & Sons store, the warehouse and the Blanchette House reveal an unforgotten past and attest to the way of life of fishing families. You will be taken back through fields and woods to a number of old houses and barns. Outdoor exhibits along the way recount the history of Grande-Grave. The bracing sea air and Forillon’s magnificent panoramas are sure to make your walk all the more pleasant!
