AN AMAZING ROCK AND SO MUCH MORE
Over the past 500 million years, powerful geological phenomena have forged a remarkably diverse natural heritage here on Earth. And in Percé, they have fashioned an incredible playground for you to explore!
Is the Earth’s crust as immobile as it seems? Find out for yourself at Tektonik, an interactive immersive exhibition that reveals the secrets of plate tectonics and the formation of the famed Percé Rock.
Enjoy 18 km of hiking trails and spectacular viewpoints. With no fewer than 25 “geosites,” the geopark boasts a wealth of remarkable geological phenomena to explore.
Ever walked on air? Step onto the glass-floored platform cantilevered over the edge of a cliff at the summit of Mount Sainte-Anne, 200 m above sea level. You’ll get a whole new appreciation of the surroundings. While you’re at it, take a few minutes to learn about local ecology and history. And for a thrilling finish, try the zipline!!
There are plenty of other activities, too, including cool playspaces, yukigassen snowball fights, a night-time multimedia show on Percé’s Indigenous heritage, an introduction to geocaching, visits to Agathe’s geology lab, workshops, and more.
What’s a geopark? UNESCO Global Geoparks are geographical areas where sites and landscapes of international geological significance are managed with a holistic concept of protection, education, and sustainable development. The geopark in Percé was founded by a solidarity cooperative.
