Forillon National Park

Forillon, an Invitation to Land's End!
Forillon, a national park created in 1970, is located at the farthest reach of the Gaspé Peninsula. Its majestic landscapes cover a 244 km 2 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.
