Pleasures of the islands

687.54 $ Tx incl.

Château Madelinot
Duration of 5 nights

The Magdalen Islands are one of the most popular destinations in Quebec. Many dream of visiting the islands at least once in their lives, others are very loyal to them and enjoy staying there year after year. The beauty of this wilderness is calm, resourceful and dazzling at the same time. In June, tourists are not yet very present. For example, we can take advantage of a trip to the sea for the lobster season. If your vacation is in July and August, don’t wait any longer to book, many family vacations are taken in the summer period to enjoy the beautiful beaches and sand castles. If you are lucky enough to wait a little, September will be a nice quieter season with beautiful weather.

In this stay, enjoy 5 nights at the Château Madelinot, in a renovated room*, a hotel ideally located to visit and enjoy the beach. You will have the rental of an intermediate car to take full advantage of this destination! 3 activities are also included. A visit to the Fumoir d’antan will show you the techniques of smoking and smoking herring, among others, according to the ancestral method, still used today to guarantee the authenticity and quality of these local products. This visit will include a tasting of smoked salmon, scallop and mackerel kebabs! Afterwards, you will have the chance to go fishing for oysters and mussels by boat! In the lagoon or on the open sea, about 7 km offshore, you will visit an aquaculture farm and learn more about mariculture. Finally, in a zodiac, you will explore caves eroded by the wind and the sea, and the copper-toned cliffs typical of the Magdalen Islands, from Cap-aux-Meules to Gros-Cap. A unique landscape that can only be seen from the sea. Along the coast, your guide will share his experiences and anecdotes with passion. At the same time, you will be able to observe sea birds nesting on the cliffs.
