If you’ve never heard of the Iles de la Madeleine, you’re not alone. This archipelago of a dozen islands (only seven inhabited) is located in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, about 60 miles from Prince Edward Island, 125 miles from the Gaspe peninsula of Quebec, and over 700 miles from Montreal. Six of the islands are connected with long, thin sand dunes, and a single highway–route 199. The whole group is shaped much like a fish hook or a crescent moon.
