Îles de la Madeleine

A green archipelago surrounded by white-sand beaches and red cliffs, the windswept Îles de la Madeleine exert a magnetic attraction. Located in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Islands are ideal for wind and sea sports. Fish and seafood abound in local restaurants, including the renowned Island lobster.

The natural beauty of the archipelago also inspires the many talented local artisans who create unique works of art for you to take home.

The Islands offer a contrasting but just as lovely scene in the winter. Offering unusual activities such as paraskiing and seal pups observation, it is also possible to discover the archipelago while hiking or snowshoeing.
