Revision as of 16:54, 13 December 2006
The Gaspé Peninsula, in southeastern Quebec, Canada, extends between the mouth of the St Lawrence River and the Atlantic Ocean. The area is sparsely populated but very scenic with a rugged coastline dotted with small fishing towns and lighthouses. Inland, tree-covered mountains and salmon-filled rivers are even more remote. Gaspé is a popular summer destination for Canadians and international visitors alike with the peak season in July and August.
