TDLG on Foot: An All-Inclusive Sports Vacation in Gaspésie!

Hike or run surrounded by colourful sea and mountain scenery in Gaspésie this fall while participating in the TDLG on Foot! The 6th edition of this event will be held from September 21 to 28, 2019, and will take you from Matane to Gaspé via the majestic Chic-Choc Mountains.

Every day, participants will hike or run an average of 15 km to 20 km. You can switch back and forth from hiking boots to running shoes throughout the week. (Every evening, you can decide how you will tackle the next day’s itinerary based on information provided by the organizers.) Please note that the TDLG is a non-competitive event. The point is to challenge yourself—this way, everyone wins!

Every year, the TDLG on Foot offers a new itinerary, which makes it a great way to discover a new part of the region every time! During the 2019 edition, participants will first hike or run from Matane to Parc national de la Gaspésie and then through Haute-Gaspésie to Gaspé before reaching Forillon National Park, which offers wild and magnificent scenery. Throughout the week, experienced guides will be on hand to provide safe supervision for participants.

The TDLG on Foot is all-inclusive sports vacation that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds from all over the world. The cost of the event includes lodging, all meals and snacks, water and supplies along the trails, logistical and security support, and medical resources.

Every evening, participants can enjoy delicious gourmet meals featuring regional flavours. For the last few years, the organizers have worked closely with Gaspésie Gourmande to include more and more local ingredients in the meals. The TDLG also offers an evening program featuring local performers in a festive atmosphere. Expect lots of laughter and opportunities to meet new friends throughout this fun group event that must be experienced at least once in a lifetime!

Psst… If you can’t make it to the TDLG on Foot, follow the event on Facebook to see photos! You may also want to sign up for the 18th edition of the TDLG on Cross-Country Skis and Snowshoes, which will take place from February 22 to 29, 2020!
