Who We Are

 

The Gaspe Road Trip concept was developed by fellow Gaspesians Mary Robertson and Walter Willett, as a way to assist tourists in planning a road trip vacation to the beautiful Gaspesie. The website has been developed not only to promote the rich tourism experience of the region, but also to enhance this experience for travelers by sharing its vast collection of stories, legends, and history that make visiting the region so unique.

Mary, published author and creator of "The Little Gaspe Coast Museum", is a Gaspe storyteller involved in the Gaspe tourism and cultural sector for many decades. She served as Director of the Cascapedia River Museum, in addition to positions in the hospitality industry in Gaspe. 

Walter, writer, musician, and tourism operator, has many years of experience in hotel sales and management, as a tour guide and museum director with the Duthie's Point heritage site, in addition to operating a campground and horseback riding business.

 

The Gaspe Road Trip is a collaborative effort to bring added value and benefits to anyone considering a road trip tour to our beautiful region, as well as to inspire the youth of the region and encourage authors and writers to share more of the rich legacy and stories of the Coast with tourists, and the local community.

Travel Planning, Things To Do and Places To Stay On Gaspe Road Trip


The Gaspe is geographically, a region larger than many European countries and US States. The typical “road trip” known as the tour of the Gaspesie, covers over 900+kms (550+ miles).
 
The Gaspe offers up a wide range of options as you begin to plan your vacation.
 
Getting Here… most regional or international airports are not in the Gaspe itself, rather major metropolitan areas such as Montreal, Moncton and Quebec City, many hours from your main entry points to begin the road tour. So, logistical planning including air and ground transport options is involved from the outset. When traveling by car or RV from Ontario, New England or other part of North America, you will encounter significant distances and planning choices before you reach a Gaspe entry point.
 
Getting Around… there are two main entry points to begin the road tour of the Gaspe (Pointe-a-la-Croix at the New Brunswick border and Sainte-Flavie on the Gulf of St Lawrence). Both access the famous Route 132, which winds along the peninsula coastline, and offer different travel experiences and activity/lodging options in terms of the route you take. Adding to this is the Gaspesie National Park/Parc de la Gaspesie and Route 299, which dissects through the middle of the peninsula and adds another dimension to the planning strategy. Anticipating a 5-10 day road trip is quite common, averaging several hours of road tripping per day to destinations and offers a tremendous range of options to consider when planning your tour.
 
Where to Stay… The Gaspesie offers a wide range of some 800+ accommodation experiences from 5 to 1 star levels, including more traditional hotels/motels to more quaint bed/breakfasts that are highly popular, to chalets/cabins and private residence rentals via AIRBNB and other similar hosting services. In addition, the Gaspe offers a range of resort and camp (all inclusive fishing/hunting packages) experiences along with a range of RV / campground and tent options. 
 
Where to Eat… The Gaspe foodie scene is diverse and growing, featuring an array of local and unique culinary experiences for all tastes, beginning not surprisingly with an ocean of seafood delicacies to enjoy. Its growing agri-food and micro brewery/distillery businesses offers travelers an array of choices around each cove and mountainous turn in the road.
 
What To Do… ok you have figured out how to get here, and how you plan to navigate the peninsula and where to stay each night. Now the real planning begins. What is your pleasure? Whale watching? Fishing Excursion? Hitting the Beach? Golfing? Mountain hikes? Museums? Gastronomy and local cuisine? National Parks? Hidden local treasures? Shopping? 
 
What To Learn… The Gaspe is at the very heart of the history and exploration of the North American continent. Its legends, lore, stories and historical importance as an international hub of fishing, trade, conflict (ask us about Gaspe’s pirates!) and diverse immigration offer travelers a wealth of stories and history, an unparalleled journey across time and imagination.
 
Bringing all of this together into the ultimate Gaspe vacation is where the real expertise comes in, matching your trip itinerary to preferred daily activities in proximity, suggested places to stop, shop, experience and taste! Bringing your total experience all together into a personalized and tailored trip plan. This is the GaspeRoadTrip offer. Ready to Begin?
