Ship tourism is a major source of revenue for this small locale. If you're in the area it is a pleasant stop. The cathedral is unique as it is all made of wood. Some other old houses remain from mid-1800's. Enjoy.

Positive experiences The drive was was tremendous. It is so unique and different. Friendly people. Be adventurous! You do not need to take the entire perimeter loop . We went half way 3 hours and turned back around.

With the golds, oranges and occasional reds, the farms, the immaculate roadside homes and yards and of course, Perce, 3 days or more driving around the peninsula are so very worthwhile.

Hi, Linda. What would you like to know about this attraction? For a one week holiday, flying to Quebec City and staying two nights there, we'd want to rent a car when leaving Quebec City. Can we drive to one or two places in the Gaspe Peninsula for local charm, staying in two lovely inns or such, for about five days ? Then we'd need to get back to QC to fly home. Is this realistic timing and where would we drive to and stay, such that we could have day trips while there ? Thanks for any help, Linda

We have a Fifth Wheel and will be driving it up to the Maritimes this coming autumn. We'd like to drive around the Gaspe Peninsula if possible. I have read that there are some 'tricky' spots on the coastal highway? Would you recommend driving our truck and 40' fifth wheel along this particular loop highway? I would really appreciate your input. Thanks!

There are loads of fifth wheels, 18-wheel trucks, and the occasional Airstream caravan that do the tour of the Gaspé every year, so I wouldn't expect any problems. Highway 132 is designed for truck traffic. There are a few... More
