This variant of the Tour brings you to the top of Mount Olivine which offers great views of Mount Albert. The territory is home to the Chic-Choc Wildlife Reserve and Gaspesie National Park. Mount Albert, a 1,151-metre-high (3,776 ft) peak, is the 9th highest peak in Quebec. It was named in honour of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha because geologist Alexander Murray made the first recorded ascent of the mountain on the Prince's birthday, 26 August 1845. The mountain has popular a unique ecology for its latitude: snow cover for 9 months of the year and alpine tundra vegetation. The territory is also home to migratory woodland caribou, the only remaining herd south of the Saint Lawrence.
