"This is the new attraction of Percé that must absolutely be seen. If you did not know it, Percé is such a geologically special place that it is in the sights of UNESCO. For this reason, she is now also hosting a Geopark where you will experience a XYZ multimedia experience and where you can walk the trails and visit the suspended glass platform. For those who know Percé, it is by the parking lot of the campsite that it happens. "

"How to admire the famous Rock seen from above? Climbing Mount Sainte-Anne or Mont Blanc! The new "Geopark" of Percé counts 18km of trails in the forest, on rocks and on mosses, to put you in full view. The reception pavilion includes indoor games for children and offers an explanatory exhibition of local geological phenomena. Instructive!"

"This enchanting place allows you to discover the particular geology of the Percé region. It includes about fifteen kilometers of trails. From Mont Sainte-Anne, the views of the Percé Rock are striking! This mountain also includes a glass platform suspended at 200 meters altitude (accessible from the 3e week of July). The Geopark offers geology tours, camping and a zip line. "

** Note from the Geopark: the zip line will be inaugurated in 2017
