Welcome to our hostel

During high season (May - September), HI-Griffon Aventure offer accommodation on a natural site, with a beautiful view over the Gulf of St Lawrence. Located right at the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, on route 132 in Anse-au-Griffon, almost next door to Forillon National Park, our 1-acre home base will charm you with its scenic views and will enable you to easily reach several destinations.

Our variety of accommodation such as shelters, cabins, tent prospector, camping and even a boat offers you the freedom to choose. You will find a skilled and professional team at your service. The infrastructures that will accommodate you were mainly built from materials from old barns and driftwood contributing to the rustic look and warmth of these buildings. There are basic comforts including electric power, bedding in the cabins, nearby toilets, a fully equipped members' kitchen and a kitchenette in some cabins.

HI-Griffon Aventure also offers outdoor activities and adventures, like canyoning in summer and rafting in the spring. We want you to experience the exhilaration of a fantastic outdoor activity at an affordable price. Our passion for wilderness adventure knows its best moments when we can share it with people like you who dare to take on the challenge! Whether you want to experience true nature, go back to the basics or just gather around a campfire with your friends, the rustic Griffon Aventure hostel will captivate you with its unique atmosphere.

Superbe séjour à l'auberge Griffon Aventure

Des dortoirs qui permettent une vraie intimité. Une ambiance et des activités vraiment bien, une cuisinière très douée. Bien que difficile d'accès dans voiture, cette auberge fut, pour moi, l'une des meilleures faite au Québec.

Tout s'est très bien passé pour notre séjour en dortoir. À noter surtout, une super ambiance le soir avec le food truck, le coin feu, le bar avec bières locales variées et musique... un très bon moment ! Le tout à proximité du parc national Forillon, donc idéal avant d'aller y faire un tour.

Une auberge à mi chemin entre auberge et camping dans une belle ambiance. J'adore!

Cachet incroyable pour cette charmante auberge ! autant du dehors que du dedans ;) . Juste un peu septique sur les "douches écolo" : bien que l'eau soit limitée, la température reste excessivement chaude (et désagréable).
