Active Adventure


This is a relaxing adventure with pleasure and thrills in the magical Îles de la Madeleine. Connected by long, thin, sand dunes to form a crescent in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, this archipelago is a summer paradise for activity, shrouded in the mystery that comes only with the isolation these islands enjoy. You will explore a new island each day, using a mix of activities. As well as the familiar cycling and walking, you will have opportunities to surf on the waves in your kayak, and to harness the wind for an exciting ride on the sand in a tiny, kite-propelled buggy! There are so many to choose from, you can also mix activities based on your whims if you prefer not to follow the plan. The adventure starts with a ferry trip from Prince Edward Island across the warm Gulf waters, in time for a wonderful introduction to the fabulous French cuisine. Your guided exploration will commence the following morning, and your days will give you an appetite for the fabulous cuisine you'll enjoy each evening. The landscape here is wild and fragile. The people, mainly of Acadian descent, mixed with shipwreck survivors who never left, have a strong heritage: French is the first language of the majority of the Madelinots, with an Anglophone minority population, and fishing is still their predominant way of life. Honest, hardworking, and friendly, they welcome visitors to share the special pleasure of their uniquely isolated, very Acadian lifestyle. Superb food, good humour, unusual thrills, and some of the longest and nicest beaches you'll ever see, are the highlights. Come and discover the magic.

Preceding this trip with the PEI cycling adventure makes an excellent combination that flows seamlessly into one 11-day adventure. We will look after the details for you if you book both trips.



Typical Day


If you want to travel with van support and cheerful, caring guides, and have most of your meals included, a guided trip is the best choice for you. Your luggage is carried for you, and on most days, the guide(s) will pass you in the support vehicle frequently to offer you snacks, drinks, and opportunities to catch a lift. The groups usually congregate for picnic lunches and special affairs, but otherwise tend to spread out along the route during the day, each rider choosing his or her own pace. Because you will be sharing your holiday with other adventurers likely to have a few things in common with you, your evening dinners become enriched by shared stories and entertainment, and you may make friends who will share your future adventure plans.

Sleeping and meals


Accommodations are high-end, well appointed inns, resorts, or hotels. We ensure that you will have a private bath, and aim to find the most unique, accommodating, comfortable accommodations available.

We provide excellent nutrition for hungry adventurers. Breakfasts are always included. On self-guided trips, we provide the information you need to make good lunch and dinner choices. On guided trips most lunches and dinners are included. We prepare picnics for you along the route, we provide healthy snacks for between meals, and we dine at the best restaurants we know, making exceptions only when the freedom to explore is the most appropriate option. We ask you for information about your dietary restrictions and preferences before you arrive. Vegetarians, seafood lovers, children, and discriminating palates can usually be well accommodated. If you have specific dietary needs, such as kosher or very restrictive diets, please ask before booking.

Other Information


All adventure prices are per person, and based on double occupancy. Single occupancy charges reflect the cost of having a room by yourself. If you prefer to share or to avoid the extra cost, and are joining an advertised departure, give us as much notice as you can, and we will do our best to match you with a roommate of the same gender. If you reserve at least 120 days in advance, and are willing to share a room, we will waive the charge even if we are unable to match you with a room-mate. From 120 to 60 days ahead, the charge will be reduced by 50%. Within 60 days, the single occupancy charge must apply until we are able to match you up. Any charge will be refunded if we are later able to match you up with a room-mate. Please note that where suitable shared occupancy is not available, a pro-rated single occupancy charge will apply. Please also note that private groups are not eligible for single occupancy exemption.

Discounts Offered


Rewards apply to any guided trip as advertised, booked directly with Freewheeling. They are not applicable to self-guided, self-supported, private or customized trips, or new departures requested less than six months in advance unless they fill (10ppl+). They can be combined with each other without limit, but cannot be combined with any other discounts, prizes, or rebates.


Referral Rewards
If you have referred new customers to book directly with us since your last Freewheeling Adventure, you are entitled to a reduced cost. Each new guest who mentioned you as a referrer will allow you $125 off your next trip in the same season. Qualifying referrals apply to new guests, excluding family members, who have never traveled with Freewheeling before, and who identify you as 'where they heard about FA'. They apply to your next payment once they have confirmed a scheduled guided trip of five days or more. You can ask your referrals to tell us you recommended us, or you can simply give us their name and contact details yourself. Unless they are already on our list, we will send them our invitation, and once they book, can apply the credit to your next adventure. Please claim the reward when you reserve your next trip, or before your final balance is due.
