Oct 1, Wednesday
Sept-Ĩles, Canada » 8 am 3 pm
Named for the seven islands sitting off shore in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, Sept-Îles captivates visitors with its stunning landscape and rich heritage. From sandy beaches to the meandering Moise River to a dense boreal forest, the scenic wonders of Sept- Îles constantly unfold before your eyes. Locals are particularly proud to call this region home to the Native Amerindian Innu people, whose culture and traditions have left an indelible mark on the islands.
Oct 2, Thursday
Magdalen Islands, Canada » 12 noon 6 pm
Having been isolated through most of its history, the Iles de Madeleine or the Magdalen Islands offer a tranquil retreat from the outside world. Still largely unspoiled by urban trappings, life here is simple and relaxing. It’s actually possible to take a stroll along the beach and not encounter anyone or anything but birds and breezes. And you will see birds. Over 250 species of birds migrate to the islands to nest, including many that are on the endangered list. Also making their home here are harp seals, which draw eco-tourists to watch the winter births of baby harp seals in the adjacent Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
Oct 3, Friday
Saint-Pierre & Miquelon, France » 9 am 4 pm
Just south of Newfoundland, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon are not Canadian, but instead belong to the French Republic. In fact, they are the last vestiges of France’s colonization of the continent. As such, they are true French towns, making them a unique destination unlike anyplace else in North America. The more urban of the two is Saint-Pierre, with its landmark Pointe aux Canons Lighthouse greeting visitors who enter the harbor. Miquelon, on the other hand, is smaller, with just 600 inhabitants. Every year, the island hosts a Basque Festival, reflecting the Basque ancestry of many of the residents.
