Non-Fishing Activities

The Gaspé Peninsula is rich in culture, heritage and natural beauty and offers many activities for the non-fisherperson. This special region of Quebec has its own identity and its warm proud people readily share their enthusiasm for life with visitors. The original settlers of the region were of both French and English descent and nearby historical sites depict the lives of those early settlers. Both languages are now commonly used throughout the region. Camp Bonaventure is ideally situated, about midway along the south coast of the peninsula, for visiting many of its attractions.
