The pligrimage towards the Perce Rock. A classic that must be accomplished keeping your distance. This colossus is loosing more than 300 tons of rock per year.
Low tides

The harbour front of Barachois, an old fishing wharf where the river meets the sea, providing a very rich environment worth exploring. A natural stop between Forillon-Gaspe and Perce.

The Malbaie sandbar, a quiet place where you can enjoy the presence of more discreet birds like this kingfisher.
 
©Jean-François Gagné Agate from Perce Gaspe Peninsula Quebec Canada
Is it an agate from the beach of l'Anse-à-Beaufils or Coin-du-Banc? They are so different. You will easily find a local artisan to polish your semi precious stone in Perce.

If you shop wisely, you can put your hand on original creation from Perce's artists. After all, bringing home handmade treasures makes traveling so much fun.

If kayaking is your sport, we offer the dreamed pool to navigate. Rental equipment available right on the beach.

Les falaise du Parc Forillon Gaspésie Québec Canada
About 1 hour 20 minutes drive from Perce towards Gaspe, you will access the Forillon National Park of Canada. Beach activities, hiking, cycling, rollerblading, horseback riding and maybe the chance to see a black bear...

I don't remember if the aperitif or the sunset comes first, but they surely make a perfect combination.

For the ones who plan their trip very carefully, or the very lucky ones. What about a treck on Bonaventure Island under a full moon?

The night is quietly embracing Perce but many restaurants, terraces and bars are expecting you. Still, it's never to late for shopping.
 

This page is a work in progress and really doesn't claim to be a complete list of all the activities that can be done in Perce or its vicinities. One thing is sure, you will need several days in our beautiful village if you want to do them all.
