Forillon was created in 1970 and was Quebec's first national park of Quebec. It is located in the far east of the Gaspesie Peninsula, near the town of Gaspe, where the landscapes are a mixture of cliffs and mountains (northern tip of the Appalachians). The park includes colonies of sea birds and whales, seals, black bears (I was lucky to see one and nothing happened) and deer. I visited the park near the south entrance and came very early (I think it was 6:30), did not have to pay an entrance fee (the early bird catches the worm). I then decided to take a small trekking trip for about 2 hours until I arrived at Gaspe, where I found the black bear, which fortunately ran away as soon as it saw me.
The National Park Ile et Du Rocher Percé Bonaventure can be found in the village of Percé, east of the region of Gaspésie, Quebec. This park encompasses both coastal areas where the Rocher Percé and seaside covering Bonaventure Island. Here lives a spectacular gannet colony. The coast can be easily reached on foot and I could access the island on one of the boats that are taken from the main pier.
With the Boat to Ile Bonaventure you can take in the main spring of the population of Percé every day from 9 in the morning. There are three operating companies and the three are the same price ($25 round trip). On the way the boat turns around the Rocher Percé and makes a return to the island through the cliffs. The trip takes about an hour and twenty minutes back. The last boat is at five in the afternoon on the island allowing you to spend the day there.

One of the main findings attributed to this site is of a type of fossil that is considered one of the first living vertebrates with four limbs, the scientific value of this place is invaluable.
