You’ll be able to take a special helicopter flight to enjoy the one-of-a-kind winter experience of watching baby seals on the pack ice between February 21 and March 18, 2019, on the Magdalen Islands.

Climate change in recent years has forced us to reconsider how to continue offering guests our winter experience, which has made Château Madelinot’s reputation throughout the world for 35 years. Our objective remains unchanged: to provide our guests an exceptional experience against the backdrop of the unique Magdalen Islands archipelago.

 Come enjoy this special experience from up in the sky; see the harp seals on the pack ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence; watch the mothers taking care of their young; take photos of the little faces of the white seal pups against the snow and ice that stretch as far as the eye can see. The Magdalen Islands are the only place in the world where you can see harp seal pups.

And if the ice is thick enough, our helicopters will land only metres away from a spectacular herd of whitecoats (harp seals). Accompanied by our guide, you’ll have the privilege of observing them up close, in their natural habitat.

 In addition to the seal-watching experience, you’ll be able to admire the immensity of the natural surroundings and enjoy a host of unique activities and landscapes.
