Resumption of a more intimate Crossing of the Gaspé Peninsula after two years of forced break

The 20th version of the TDLG will take place in a more intimate formula, with around a hundred participants (archives).

After a two-year hiatus due to health restrictions, the winter Traversée de la Gaspésie (TDLG) will be back from March 5 to 11, 2023.

With the board of directors, we asked questions: do we continue, do we stop? We've been organizing the TDLG for 20 years, so for us, it was essential to produce this event, says the president and co-founder of the TDLG, Claudine Roy.

The 20th version of the TDLG will take place in a more intimate formula, that is to say with a hundred participants, on the theme Being together.

We don't want to have 300 people for the return of the Grandes Traversées. We said 100-125 people for us, it's ideal to resume the event and get back on track. It will be much easier to manage, explains Claudine Roy.

The realization of this edition on skis and snowshoes will still require adaptation from the organizing committee.

We invite people to come to Gaspé and we will spend the week on the end of the peninsula, she explains. We will travel between L'Anse-à-Valleau, Forillon Park, Coin-du-Banc, Percé. And people will stay during the week in our establishments in Gaspé.

“Everything will be in the same place, it will be a lot easier for us. »

— Claudine Roy, president and co-founder of the Traversée de la Gaspésie

It will also be possible to receive massage therapy or go to the spa.

It's going to be an exploded formula, a different formula. We're going to put our entire community to work so that our event is, as always, extraordinary and spectacular, promises Claudine Roy.

The pandemic has caused the cancellation of five winter and summer TDLGs .

Claudine Roy estimates the economic impact of each TDLG at $500,000.
