The Gaspe peninsula forms the southern entrance to the St Lawrence River on the Atlantic coast of Canada and is dominated by forested ranges of the Appalachian Mountains, such as the Shickshock (Chic-Chocs) Mountains, including Mount Jacques-Cartier at 4,160 ft. The peninsula has numerous rivers and lakes and large areas of wilderness, excellent for hunting and fishing and several large parks, including Forillon National Park, on the eastern coast, and Gaspesie Provincial Park, in the Chic-Chocs. Forillon National Park encompasses some 92 square miles of greatly diverse landscape. Within its borders, there are nine different levels of climactic variation, a spectacular array of wildlife, and plants that have survived since the Ice Age. Every year, thousands of seabirds come to nest on the cliffs.

Iroquoian-speaking tribes were living on the Gaspe Peninsula when the French explorer Jacques Cartier landed there in 1534. The Micmac tribe inhabited the peninsula by the 1600s. The peninsula is probably named after a Micmac word meaning "land's end".
