    A Speck on the Horizon, Our Car Awaits

    We decided that, for ease in getting from one island to another, we would take our car on the ferry with us (C$73 each way for it). Also, because the weather on the Madeleines is so unpredictable and changeable, out in the Gulf, it gave us some flexibility in case things turned out to be wetter than anticipated! We also thought about doing some biking (rental) but, with the strong winds that were prevelant, we decided that would be more of a chore than pleasure! The main highway, Rte. 199 runs from one end of the connected islands to the other. It is in excellent condition and there is little or no traffic on most parts of it. It also has a wide paved shoulder where the road uses the dunes connecting the islands, but this is also designated for use by All Terrain Vehicles. We ended up putting 500 km on the car in our meanderings, as well as another 900 km on the mainland (round trip). The day we saw the whales, we simply drove off Rte. 199 onto a little used farmer's road in an open field. We drove up and over a ridge in the field and the cliffs and ocean lay spread out before us. Leaving the car, we then walked the rest of the way to the cliffs and really enjoyed just being there by ourselves!

    Iles de la Madeleine Map

    This map, supplied by the ferry company shows their shipping routes to the mainland as well as an overview of the main roads on the islands. The photo of our car in the field was taken at the very lower left of this map, on the point of land near Bassin.
