    Parc de Gros-Cap

    Welcome in the marvellous world of the Magdalen Islands's Auberge. Here you are on the Gros-Cap peninsula, a big carved red rock in the blue St-Laurence Gulf. The sea is all over the place! The sea birds dance on the wind flow and the waves play music on sand or in the deep caves... Ambiance is unique. The hostel, witche is a free-smoke building, has 9 bedrooms ( 3 privates and 6 shared). It can hold 30 peoples. On the base level you will find a kitchen, dinning and living room, and 3 bathrooms and there is a toilet on the first floor. We have Internet wire-less (Wi-Fi) and we also have 2 computers. The laundry is in the Pavillon Montreuil, the building next. Our vacation center also owns 10 little rooms at the second floor of the Pavillon Montreuil including two singles bed 39in. They are simple and clean rooms which may be suitable for all types of travelers. The roomers have a complete shared kitchen and they share the bathrooms with the Park campers. It's the perfect place to meet people and share about islands discovery... You can also discover the peninsula'secrets through a sea kayak tour with our experienced guides. Feel the sea, the vibes and sounds comming out the caves and enjoy the beauty of the red carved cliffs. Welcome!
