Welcome to Parc National de la Gaspésie
After driving south from Ste Anne des Monts along Rte 299, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd left the Atlantic coast and plunged into the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Except making that comparison isn't fair when describing Parc National de la Gaspésie, which has a raw, rugged beauty all its own, one as rooted in oceanic proximity (even in the Gaspé's interior) as mountainous soul.
Be warned: even into May, there are trails here that will be inaccessible due to snowfall or ice. Welcome to Canada!
