Magdalen Islands

Magdalen Islands
When looking for a beautiful and exotic destination, the traveler needs to look no further than the Magdalen Islands, an archipelago in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. However, when looking for something familiar and close to home, the traveler in Canada will look and find these same islands. Their proximity makes them feel as if they have always been there, and yet their unique culture and landscape makes them feel at the same time to be invigorating and exciting as a place new and different.

Magdalen Islands
The traveler will never run out of things to do and see o­n the Magdalen Islands. Lobster and seafood make up the backbone of the archipelago's cuisine; o­ne can eat at small seaside restaurants or walk along the docks to see where the lobster boats come to port. If that is not close enough to the water to satisfy, o­ne can take a kayak out into the soft waves and paddle in clear blue waters along beneath the tall sandstone cliffs. Hiking provides the perfect way to take in the landscape, whether walking across the long, rolling fields of green grass or strolling down the stretches of white sand where the waves come up to break o­nto the shore. If walking is too slow, there are bicycles that can be rented and then rode down ancient roads that wind across the tops of gorgeous cliffs, cliffs that the traveler can stop and look over from within the safety of wooden fences.

No matter what o­ne is looking to do, if it involves the enjoyment of nature and the vibrant culture of humanity, o­ne can find it in the Magdalen Islands. The people are as warm and friendly as their landscape, and they will be more than happy to show the traveler the islands' very best.
