Written Directions

Start in the small village of Perce', Quebec on route 132. You will be hugging the coast northward all the way to Gaspe', Quebec. By traveling in this direction the ocean is always on your right. That way when you pull off to take in the views you won't be crossing traffic.

Scenery

This coastal route has the Atlantic Ocean and Saint Lawrence Seaway running along you the whole way. Certain times of the year you may see whales, but they are rare. In the distance you'll see ships making their way to and from the Great Lakes. This area is VERY remote, so carry what you need to make repairs.

Drive Enjoyment

Pavement is well maintained. Since Winters this far north are harsh the roads can be rough in Spring. The curves are mostly open sweepers with a few blind corners as you negotiate along the coast.

Tourism Opportunities

The is a nice ride between Perce' and Gaspe'. The two villages have a few places to eat and sleep. The big photo opportunity is Perce' Rock. A massive formation in Perce' that is just off shore. Time and ocean currents have worn a hole through it that is very visible at low tide.

A lovely ride hugging the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Of the two toens Gaspe and Perce, I found Perce to be more interesting, and have to offer of accommodations, restaurants. Pictures must be taken at Perce' Rock, just off shore, visible from the town.
