What we have to offer: The hostel has a rich history, the building was the 'Hôtel de la Baie de Gaspé', 50 years ago. Originally, Gespeg signified in Amerindian language "where mountains meet with the sea".
The hostel is located at the southern headland of the Gaspé Peninsula, in
the village of Cap-Aux-Os, within sight of the Forillon national park.
In 1623, missionary Gabriel Sagard who was visiting Gaspé, related that the
continuous roar of the whales and the noise from their blowholes troubled
their sleep. Numerous bones from these mammals found on the beach inspired
them the toponym Cap-Aux-Os (Cape of Bones).
Forillon is known for its whalewatching, and is only ten minutes from the Forillon National Park, which also hosts plenty of bears, beavers and seals.
