Forillon, a national park created in 1970, is located at the farthest reach of the Gaspé Peninsula. Its majestic landscapes cover a 244 km2 area that is carved out of the sea, cliffs and mountains. Forillon protects a representative sample of the Notre-Dame and Mégantic mountain regions and certain elements of the Gulf of St. Lawrence marine region.
The presence of ten different rock formations, colonies of seabirds and enigmatic artic-alpine plants give this park its unique character. Within this seaside park, the Grande-Grave National Heritage Site attests to the way of life of fishing families.
Enjoy a wide range of activities by sea and in the forest! Take a stoll across the pebble beach, go snorkelling and discover the wildlife or simply sit back and relax and listed to the seabirds and whale sounds.
They offer a whale watching cruise where you'll get to see the magnificent animals in their natural habitat and you may spot other wildlife too!
