Discovery Activities


Let park wardens share their passion for the territory and the nature it protects! Join them in the alpine tundra of Mont Jacques-Cartier, discover a unique natural environment on the plateau of Mont Albert, attend an evening lecture to learn the secrets of the Gaspésie caribou, and let the legends carry you away. Here are many ways to explore Parc national de la Gaspésie in all its facets.

See the complete list of the park’s discovery activities (in French only).

... or Go at Your Own Pace

Are you more independent? No problem! Explore Parc national de la Gaspésie on your own and soak up the spirit of the area.

There are discovery panels along the trails on Mont Albert, Mont Jacques-Cartier and Mont Ernest-Laforce, as well as Rivière-Cascapédia trail. Interpretive tools are also available around Lac aux Américains and Lac Cascapédia to make your hikes even more interesting.

The Discovery and Visitors Centre in the Mont-Albert sector presents an exhibition called A Sea of Mountains in the Heart of the Gaspésie, and the Discovery Centre on the Mont Jacques-Cartier campground offers an exhibition called The Gaspésie Caribou.

Did you know?

At the top of Mont Jacques-Cartier

You can get a taste of the far north at Parc national de la Gaspésie. At the top of Mont Jacques-Cartier, at 1,270 m in altitude, a park warden-naturalist will help you discover this unique alpine tundra environment, similar to those of Quebec's great northern spaces. You'll travel through block fields, polygonal soils and other typical periglacial shapes that are very rare south of the St. Lawrence River.

Perhaps you'll have the privilege of observing the noble ambassador of these harsh environments, the Gaspé caribou. Help us protect it by keeping a 50-metre distance from sightings!
