Road Trip Ideas
The best way to explore the Îles de la Madeleine is by going on a series of day trips from a home base. Your adventure can even begin before you set foot on the Islands if you opt for a cruise departing from Montréal.
The Îles de la Madeleine boast over 300 kilometres (190 miles) of white-sand beaches where you can swim, soak up the sun and stroll along the shoreline. You can also participate in the yearly sand castle contest.
