Nestled at the easternmost point of the Gaspé Pensinsula, the city of Gaspé is the largest municipality in this popular tourist area of Quebec with just over 15,000 residents. With its 150 kilometres (90 miles) of prime Gulf-of-St. Lawrence coastline, Gaspé is arguably one of the most nautical cities in this part of the country. Often referred to as the “Cradle of Canada” since this is where French explorer Jacques Cartier took possession of what is now Canada in 1534, Gaspé is an outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise, with its legendary bay overlooked by the Appalachian chain of mountains, three magnificent salmon rivers prized by anglers, two of the finest sandy beaches in all of Quebec, and the spectacular Forillon national park, which covers an impressive 244 square kilometres (94 square miles). Gaspé boasts a rich and cosmopolitan cultural heritage, laying claim to Irish, Jersey, Acadian, French, and Mi’kmaq origins.
