PARC NA­TIO­NAL DU CA­NA­DA FO­RILLON

Guide Arc-en-ciel - - Le Québec Maritime_ -

Fa­çon­né par l'éro­sion, le parc na­tio­nal Fo­rillon offre un dé­cor im­pres­sion­nant où se cô­toient les mon­tagnes, les prai­ries par­se­mées de fleurs sau­vages, les plages de ga­lets bor­dant les pe­tites anses, ain­si que les fa­laises es­car­pées sur­plom­bant la mer. Fo­rillon abrite une faune ter­restre va­riée et fa­ci­le­ment ob­ser­vable, dont l'ours noir et l'ori­gnal, et ac­cueille aus­si d'im­por­tantes co­lo­nies d'oi­seaux de mer, no­tam­ment les cor­mo­rans, les mouettes et les pe­tits pin­gouins.

At the ex­treme nor­theast end of the Gas­pé Pe­nin­su­la, 700 km from Qué­bec and 350 km from the New Bruns­wick boun­da­ry, via High­way 132 East Sha­ped by ero­sion, Fo­rillon Na­tio­nal Park of­fers an im­pres­sive, na­tu­ral de­cor with its ma­jes­tic moun­tains, its mea­dows dot­ted with wild­flo­wers, its coves li­ned by pebble beaches, as well as its steep cliffs over­sha­do­wing the sea. Fo­rillon shel­ters va­rious and ea­sy to ob­serve spe­cies of wild­life, such as the black bear and the moose, and al­so im­por­tant co­lo­nies of sea­birds, for example, the double-cres­ted cor­mo­rant, the black-leg­ged gull, and the ra­zor­bill.
