Location Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada

The Pic de l'Aurore (Peak o'Dawn) is a cliff culminating at about 800 feet at the west entrance of the village of Percé on the Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada. From its top you can view on both the bay of Gaspé up to the Forillon National Park of Canada, and the bay of Percé including the Percé Rock and the Parc national de l'île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé. The Cliff also shares its name with the Au Pic de l'Aurore Village Chalet, a lodging facility located about 300 feet below the top.
