Fundy National park boasts the highest tides in the world. At low tide, you can walk the sea floor among hoodoos – and then if you are adventurous hop in a canoe and paddle as the tide rises by up to twelve feet in a few hours.
Forillon was the first national park created in Quebec. It has diverse scenery from sea coast & salt marshes to sand dunes & cliffs, and even the eastern end of the Appalachians. It is a mountainous peninsula bordered by the Gaspe and Gulf of St. Lawrence. Whale watch, hike the cliffs or snorkel with seals – so many possibilities,
Thousand Islands National Park ( sometimes called the St. Lawrence Islands) is fascinating. Rugged shorelines meet gilded age estates. You can island hope by canoe or kayak. There are at least 20 islands between Kingston and Brockville. The parkway gives you easy access to many historic sights including Bellevue – home to our first prime minister, Sir John A. MacDonald – where the seeds of confederation were planted.
