Hôtel-Château Madelinot

During winter, snow and ice transform the Iles-de-la-Madeleine into a beautiful lunar landscape. Then, the end of February signals the annual return of those true nomads of frozen seas. Hundreds of thousands of harp seals come give birth to their pups on the ice floes around the Islands. For 2 or 3 weeks, we can observe the adult seals and their pups in their natural habitat; a spectacular site of snow and ice animated by the presence of this immense herd on a territory that extends as far as the eyes can see. The hotel Château Madelinot offers different packages which include one helicopter tour to the seals. This allows the tourists, nature lovers, to go on the ice floes and experience a close contact with the baby seals. Sure of their success, the harp seal pups will take a pose and let themselves be photographed in the perfect media creatures they have become these last few years.

In the accents of his younger days, he takes us on a tour of a society poised precariously between the traditional and modern worlds. He illustrates the importance of traditions and the uniqueness of his people. His stories, profound, subtle and sensitively rendered, bring to life the legends of Island life... a magical visit to his own personal corner of paradise.
