Wide-open spaces, delicious gastronomy
The Micmac people of the Gaspésie region have long known the natural trails around the local mountains. They travelled along the rivers, undoubtedly drawn by the abundance of salmon. Then, in the mid-19th century, a wave of explorers set off a new era of discovery: the geologist Sir William E. Logan in 1844 and Alexander Murray, another geologist, in 1845, who peaked the mysterious mountain to the south of Sainte-Anne-des-Monts and named it after Prince Albert, in honour of his birthday.
In 1937, the Québec National Assembly voted in a law creating Gaspésie National Park. At this time, the park was created with four goals in mind, including developing tourism by building a hotel. In the following months, there was further exploration of the area and construction began on the first buildings at the foot of Mont-Albert. Gîte du Mont-Albert opened its doors in June 1950.
In 1987, the Québec government transferred management of Gîte du Mont-Albert to Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (SEPAQ). Since then, this 17-room guest house has grown into a four-star inn with 60 rooms and 23 chalets.
