Itinerary

Day 1:

 

Accommodation: Auberge Chez Denis à François or Havre Sur Mer, Havre Aubert

Transfer from Charlottetown before noon, or meet in Souris at 13:00 for the 14:00 ferry to Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine. After dinner, visit the Café de La Grave, where the locals gather in the evening for music and laughter.

Auberge Chez Denis à François or Havre Sur Mer, Havre Aubert

Day 2: 30km/19 miles bike ride or 15km/10 miles walk, and an afternoon of kayaking

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Auberge Chez Denis à François or Havre Sur Mer, Havre Aubert

Morning ride or walk around the roads of the southernmost island, Île du Havre Aubert. The natural harbour at Havre Aubert is surrounded by round hills called "Les Demoiselles". The nearby historical site of La Grave is a fascinating highlight to a morning on quiet rolling roads, grassy seaside meadows, and sandy beaches. In the afternoon explore gorgeously red sandstone cliffs and calm lagoons by kayak. Reward yourself with a drink and pastry at a café before choosing from exquisite restaurants for dinner. BL Same lodging

Day 3: 5km/3 miles hilly walk and island exploration, with optional alternatives

Meals: Breakfast

Cross to Anglophone Île d’Entrée by small boat, for exploration on foot of this hilly, emerald island. The unobstructed view from the pinnacle of the island is the finest. If you prefer, you can have a day to yourself, to play nine holes of golf, go horseback riding, go snorkelling with seals, or try swimming through sea-caves. BD Same lodging as last night or tomorrow night

Day 4: 35km/22 miles bike ride and kite buggying

Meals: Breakfast

 

Accommodation: Domaine du Vieux Couvent

Ride northward to Île du Cap aux Meules with a stop in L’Étang-du-Nord for a picnic at the scenic lookoff at Cap du Phare – Lighthouse Cape. After lunch, get ready for an exciting afternoon of kite-surfing or kite-buggying. This new and increasingly popular sport will leave you wanting more, and the Magdalen Islands are the perfect spot to try it out. Kite buggies can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter what level of experience, after an introduction to power kiting. Some may choose a tandem experience with an instructor. Kite surfing demands more time, strength, or familiarity. We provide the introduction, and if you are a quick learner, the start to kite buggying. It’s addictive. You will probably want more, and will have the opportunity tomorrow or the next day to have it! Tonight’s dinner options are amongst the finest of Atlantic Canada, and there are nightlife options for those so inclined. BL Domaine du Vieux Couvent, Havre aux Maisons

Day 5: 40km/25 miles to 100km/60 miles ride and 15km/10 miles walk

Meals: Breakfast

Cyclists will ride north along the beach and dunes to Ile aux Loups, Grosse Ile, and the Point de l'Est bird sanctuary. You will have a French picnic lunch in an idyllic meadow with a panoramic view, on the northernmost populated island of the archipelago. Walkers will transfer to the Point de l’Est bird sanctuary, and will spend the day walking the perimeter of the sanctuary on wide, gorgeous sand beaches, with forays into the interior to look for birds among the woods and barachois. BL Same lodging

Day 6: Extra day for options!

Meals: Breakfast

As you will have realized by now, this is a place to linger and savour. We include an extra day with limited structure for you to pursue whatever options make you happiest. Many want more kite buggying. Some want more cycling or beach time. Others want to re-visit their favourite café, to play in the waves and bask at the beach, or walking on the cliffs. Your inn is in a central location, within reach of most islands by bike or van. You choose; we facilitate! This can be the most enjoyable day of your holiday, and we look forward to helping make it satisfying for you. If you prefer, leave the choice to us and we will surprise you with a carefully considered combination of activities guaranteed to leave you pleasantly tired and ready for a final dinner on Les Iles. BD Same lodging

Day 7: Farewell

Meals: Breakfast

Early morning ferry back to PEI. After lunch on board, you will arrive in Souris by 14:00, and will commence the 45-minute drive to Charlottetown right away. Finish in Charlottetown by about 15:00.
