Overview
More
Parc national de l'Ile-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Perce stands out with its rich natural, historic, and geological heritage. Sculpted by time and the sea, at the Gaspe Peninsula's tip, it has the fortress of Bonaventure Island and the magnificent stone vessel of Perce Rock-Quebec's tourism emblem. Its outstanding flora and fauna, including its famous colony of Northern Gannets make it a must-see for visitors, as do the island's old homes-the last witnesses to the way the islanders lived a century ago.

A unique place on earth. The largest sanctuary of Fou de Bassan. There is great opportunity to take great photo. If you have problem to move yourself, forget this excursion. For others, expect great moments.

This is an absolute must, if you're in the area. It's extremely beautiful and interesting. I would do it again in a heartbeat! The boat ride alone is great, so if you're not a hiker you can just take that, or get off the boat...More

The trip starts with the ferry to the island. Well, it is not only a fairy. It takes you around the island, where you see birds diving into the ocean to pick up fishes. An amazing view before you even land on the island. We...More

Nice. Pure. Populated by wildlife (seals, birds, small mammals...) and flowers and trees. Nice trails. Amazing. Enjoyable. Nothing to add: if you happen to be here, it's a must!

Yes it's possible! You have to let your kayak near the wharf. The access to the parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé is $8.50 / adult and free for the children. Enjoy your visit!
