The Gaspesie (official name), or Gaspe Peninsula, the Gaspe or Gaspesia. Nestled in a rugged coastline dotted with tiny fishing villages and lighthouses, Gaspe lies in the shadow of the Chic-Choc Mountains. With more than 800 square miles of preserved parks, its natural beauty and abundant wildlife is astounding. Herds of caribou and elk roam freely; eagles and puffins share quiet coves. Visit Perce Rock and watch as this geologic wonder changes colour in the transiting sun.
