The Magdalen Islands (Îles de la Madeleine) are located in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada. This archipelago of a dozen islands lined with blond sand and red cliffs attracts like a magnet. These charming islands have everything to create memorable memories; bucolic panoramas, friendly Madelinots, talented artists and unique products to satisfy the taste buds of all.
Creators are seduced by the beauty of the Magdalen Islands’ exceptional maritime environment. The sea, the red cliffs, the sand dunes and the characteristic brightness of the Islands are inexhaustible sources of inspiration.
The singular culture of the destination, due in particular to its strong island identity, its very participative, collaborative and welcoming population creates a creative and vibrant atmosphere that promotes the strong presence of artists and artisans.
Furthermore, in 2015, the Îles de la Madeleine received the Best Strategy for Creative Tourism Development strategy award as part of the Creative Tourism Awards. This award is intended to recognize institutions, initiatives and destinations around the world that demonstrate a genuine commitment to creative tourism, a tourism that invites visitors to discover the local culture by participating in artistic and participatory activities.
