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. It is also a great place to visit during winter, especially for those interested in skiing and snowshoeing in the Chic Choc Mountains.
