"Wonderful landscape" Parc de la Gaspésie by King_Golo

Parc de la Gaspésie Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 13 photos

La Gaspésie, or shorter Gaspé Peninsula is a part of Québec which is said to be pretty much different in terms of landscapes than the surrounding area. My guidebook told me that it looks kinda like Newfoundland - which I had to cross off of my travel list because of its distance to Nova Scotia and my lack of time. So i was happy to be able to see something newfoundlandish elsewhere.
Well, it didn't turn out like that. The parts I've seen of Gaspé Peninsula reminded me very much of the Alps in Europe. Hills with dense forests, wild rivers and blue sky... Only the masses of tourists that you're likely to encounter in the Alps were missing.
Nevertheless, la Gaspésie is a very beautiful piece of land and definitely worth a visit. I went there for only one day, but if I manage to go back, I'll surely stay longer.
