Backgrounder

Forillon National Park

Located on the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, Forillon Park is a mountainous area that borders on the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Bay of Gaspé. The park protects a remarkable biodiversity. Its boreal forest is home to a diverse wildlife that can be easily observed. The park’s steep cliffs welcome thousands of sea birds and its shores harbour colonies of seals. Its stunning vistas and rock formations are a testament to our planet’s captivating history. Park territory comprises four major ecosystems (aquatic, coastal, marine, and forest). The Forillon Peninsula has been inhabited for thousands of years and Forillon Park bears witness to the lives of the men and women who lived there, including Micmacs, fishermen, cod merchants, whale hunters, and lighthouse keepers.
