Iles de la Madeleine

The Iles de la Madeleine in an archipelago about 90 kilometers of the coast of Prince Edward Island in the Gulf of St Lawrence. Madelinots are proud of their origins and are renowned for their warm and generous hospitality.Most (about 80 percent) visitors arrive via the 5-hour ferry from Prince Edward Island

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.

The following contain the images captured during a fall visit.
