  • The Magadalen Islands

    The Magadalen Islands

    In the heart of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence the dozen or so islands of the Magdalen Archipelago, including 6 which are linked by narrow dunes, lie in a curved line over a length of approximately 65 kilometres. The coastline provides vacationers with three hundred kilometres of some of the finest beaches in North America. Because of their location in the Gulf, the climate of the Islands is the most temperate in Quebec, and in summer, the temperature of the water in the lagoons and along the coastal beaches regularly rises to 17 and 20°C.

Going out to explore on foot, by bicycle, car or kayak is another way to discover the varied flora and fauna, charming countryside and calm lagoons. A palette of wonderful colours brings the landscape to life, illuminating the variety of its vegetation.

    A Sea of Culture

    Although they are in fact part of Quebec, the Îles de la Madeleine owe their spiritual and cultural heritage to the Acadians, whose influence can be seen and felt all over in traditional architecture typified by brightly coloured shingled houses, in the charming lilt of the accent, in the traditional Mi-Carême festival celebrating the middle of Lent, in the foot-tapping power of the music and in the legacy of the fishing industry whose influence pervades all aspects of the inhabitants' lifestyle.

    In the frozen depths of winter, nomadic harp seals begin their southward migration. Every year, the females return to the Magdalen Islands to calve on the vast ice fields surrounding the archipelago, providing one of Nature's rarest and most wonderful spectacles. A visit to the Îles de la Madeleine at this time of year will allow you to experience the Islanders' daily life. Mostly of Acadian descent. With every new day and every new turn of the road, visions of the unique splendours of the Madelinot landscape unfold before your eyes.

  • Adventure in the Great Outdoors

    Adventure in the Great Outdoors

    Every year, during the first weeks of March, hundreds of thousands of harp seals and hooded seals migrate to the ice fields around the Îles de la Madeleine to bear their young. Helicopter tours to the ice pack are available for the observation of adult seals and whitecoats in their natural habitat: a spectacular landscape of snow and ice peopled by this enormous herd of marine mammals. Winter visitors can explore a totally different aspect of the Islands: frozen lagoons are the ideal playground for amateurs of sliding and wind sports such as kite ski and kite buggy.
