Forillon National Park

Covering almost 245 km2, Forillon National Park offers a host of experiences between sea, cliffs and forest. Its history is as fascinating as its wildlife and flora. Watch the whales blow or the imprint of a fossil. Walk the Les Graves trail, climb up to see lakes or test your mettle against the crests of the Appalachians. Listen to fishing stories at the Grande-Grave heritage site. Dive into the marine world or catch your dinner at the end of the wharf!

With the end of seasonal activities in Forillon, visitors must now ensure their own safety. Find helpful advice on our Safety on land page.
