Les Îles de la Madeleine, Quebec, Canada

5 day cycling tour

Description:

The Magdalen Island's bucolic landscapes will charm you and the warmth of the Madelinots will seduce you. As far as the eye can see, the islands and dunes seem to blend, break apart and then stretch out of sight, as if dropped by a whimsical sea. The islands look like tiny landmasses enlivened by brilliant green valleys, spectacular white sandy beaches, deep red cliffs and the countless shades of blue that the sea and the lagoons reflect from the sky. It is easy and enchanting to explore the winding roads and paths of the islands on foot or bicycle.
