Gaspésie, I love you

Touring Gaspésie by car, following a fabled route of some 885 km (550 mi.), leaves no doubt as to why the region is renowned. Jutting into the St. Lawrence as it broadens into a gulf, Gaspésie offers outstanding natural beauty and fascinating wildlife (bird colonies, salmon rivers, etc.) as well as a wide variety of discovery and leisure activities.

Its hilly terrain is criss-crossed with ATV and snowmobile trails as well as over 1,000 km (620 mi.) of bike paths.

Côte-Nord

Between earthly and unearthly

The Côte-Nord is actually an amalgamation of two regions: Manicouagan and Duplessis. Running along the St. Lawrence as it turns from estuary to gulf, the coastline here is dotted with lighthouses, whale-watching sites, archipelagos and beaches. But the magic extends far beyond the river: the Côte-Nord is also a prime destination for hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, green spaces, nature and scenery. Indeed, Manicouagan- Uapishka has been designated a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve. The sea mammals of the St. Lawrence River make their lovely dance in this region where everything is grandiose. The dams are oversized, and even the littlest villages astonish by their great beauty.
