Road Trip Itineraries

The Gaspésie Tour is a legendary seaside drive that loops around the huge Gaspé Peninsula. Begin your journey in the region of Bas-Saint-Laurent. From the Kamouraska area, Route 132 will take you all the way to Gaspé, at the tip of the peninsula, via famous Percé Rock. Read more about this road trip itinerary.

This itinerary follows Route 138 from Tadoussac to Kegaska. From there, you can continue your journey aboard an authentic supply ship that will take you from village to village all the way to Blanc-Sablon. Out at sea and from the shore, you can observe up to 13 species of whales in this region, including blue whales, the largest animals on earth. Read more about this road trip itinerary.

In the maritime regions of Québec, ferries serve as an extension of the road network. In addition to allowing you to visit both shores of the St. Lawrence without retracing your steps, they are a novel way to travel and offer unique perspectives on the surrounding scenery and marine mammals. Read more about these road trip itineraries.

For a complete change of pace and scenery, nothing beats the Îles de la Madeleine. Whether you visit to enjoy the water and wind or to explore the rich culture of an island people surrounded by the sea, you will leave with wonderful memories and only one thought in mind: to come back for another visit!

Febuary 19, 2015

The wintry conditions of the past weeks will hopefully bring us a good harp seal observation season scheduled from February 26 to March 12, 2015. Every February, the Chateau Madelinot team feverishly prepares to greet its many visitors. It is with pride that our enterprise exploits and commercializes this ecotourism activity for more than 30 years.

Again this year, people will be coming from very far to live this unique experience: Japan, China, New Caledonia, Israel, Australia, Germany, Italy, and France. We are witnessing an increase of reservations from recent past years: the Management explains this increase from the feedback of an excellent 2014 season. Obviously, the show “L’Été Indien” co-animated by Julie Snyder and Michel Drucker has given an impressing visibility to the Destination Iles de la Madeleine, but also to the winter product, the harp seal observation.

As well, a delegation of six important travel agents from France, Germany and the United Kingdom will come experience for 3 days the harp seal experience which also includes a guided visit of the Islands, as well as snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sunset photographing and other outdoor activities as well. This famtrip is anchored with the commercial project package which includes the Ice Hotel.

Joining our team again is the Japanese interpreter Mayumi as well as the well renowned Japanese photographer Rei Ohara who have become, with time, real Madelinots of adoption!

The Hotels Accents are proud to participate in the winter tourist development of the destination and to contribute to the economical life of the archipelago during a period of the year generally considered quiet, says the general manager, Mr Gino Thorne.
