Things to Do in Perce, Quebec, Perce, Quebec (B)

At the very tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, you’ll find one in Canada’s somewhat hidden gem – Percé Quebec. I say somewhat hidden as it’s a bit of a trek to get to. Those that make the journey are rewarded with geological beauty unlike anywhere else in the country.

Percé Quebec is almost 1,000 km east of Montreal and just over 750 km from Quebec city. Although it’s a ways to go, the drive packs in plenty of great things to see and do along the way.

Alternatively, you can fly into nearby Gaspé which is less than 60 km away. From there you can rent a car or start a guided tour of the region.

Perce has no shortage of things to see and do. Here’s a list of highlights not-to-be-missed on our visit to Perce Quebec.

This massive monolith rock formation of red limestone rises 88 meters (288 feet) above the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. It’s highlighted by a natural archway on its east end.

No matter where you are in town (and no matter the weather), you’ll find unique views of Percé Rock. I suggest spending a day wandering up close by the cross at the end of town as well as below when the tide is low. Be sure to consult local tied tables to prevent them from getting wet! ......
