Published: 23.3.2021
Do you prefer peaceful walks on pebble beaches with the soothing sounds of the ocean? Do you want to look into the beautiful Canadian nature? Forillon National Park offers a wide range of experiences by the sea, along the cliffs, but also in the woods. You can even go snorkeling, discovering underwater plants and underwater life. You can even watch whales here. And it's really an experience!

Forillon National Park is one of 42 national parks and park reserves throughout Canada. It is located on the outer tip of the Gaspé Peninsula in the province of Quebec and covers about 244 square kilometers. You can often find the French name Parc National Forillon, as French is the second official language in Quebec.

You will find lots of animals in this park. Seabird colonies nest here, and whales and seals can be found in the underwater world. The park is also home to several forest mammal species, such as the fox, bear, moose, lynx and coyote. You will probably be interested in the Canadian urzon, which looks like a porcupine. It is a North American rodent that can even climb trees. Unlike porcupine, it has shorter and softer spines. With a little luck, you're sure to come across the urzon in Forillon. This park is also inhabited by Virginia eaters, peregrine falcons, kestrel and also eagles.

Historically, this area was used for logging. Residents living off the coast in the village of L’Anse-au-Griffon on the north-west side of the park have mostly been involved in the timber industry since a young age. They produced planks, beams and cedar shingles on a large scale.
