Îles de la Madeleine (or Magdalen Islands) is a set of serene islands floating in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Winter morphs the archipelago into a postcard-perfect picture of Canadian wildlife, hosting harp seals and their pups on snowy shores. Summer shines on the isles' red cliff-ringed beaches and windswept, pastoral landscapes. Year-round, a warm welcome always awaits from the madelinots, the proud descendants of shipwreck survivors serenading you with traditional island tunes.
