Situated at the entrance to the St. Lawrence River, Gaspé has become the hub of the Gaspésie peninsula and has established a notable reputation as a major fishing and tourism center. The peninsula’s interior is dominated by a chain of mountains and rolling highlands that provide some wonderful scenery of forested hills, deep ravines and craggy mountains tumbling to a jagged coastline. There are also two outstanding national parks: Parc de la Gaspésie in the north of the peninsula and Forillon National Park, the jewel of the Gaspé, nestled between the St. Lawrence and Gaspé Bay.
