Unique in character: “On the Magdalen Islands, time isn't measured by clocks, but by moments!”

The Magdalen Islands offers not only a complete change of scenery but also a truly different pace of life. In the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, this lush archipelago rimmed with white sandy beaches and red cliffs attracts tourists like a magnet. Known for their warm welcome, the locals, known as Madelinots reveal their authenticity and know-how in their cuisine, where seafood takes centre stage.

This archipelago features dunes, charming little houses, important fishing ports and refreshing salt air.
