Tracing the rugged coast of Québec’s Gaspé Peninsula, the scenic Gaspésie Tour follows PR 132 along the base of towering sea cliffs just feet away from the St. Lawrence River. The route occasionally climbs inland into woods high above the shoreline with overlooks revealing broad vistas of blue water and peaceful bays dotted with historic fishing communities.

The Gaspésie Tour provides a sampling of the Gaspé Peninsula’s most spectacular scenery, showing off its rocky headlands, secluded coves and forests of fir trees. The route, following PR 132, passes Cap-des-Rosiers Lighthouse, winds through Forillon National Park and comes within sight of the often-photographed weathered cliffs of Percé Rock.
