| Breakfast: ||Breakfast at inn.|
| Morning: ||FIELD TRIP: Island Exploration. Depart for an exploration of the Central and west part of the Island. On a field trip to Fatima, located on the main island, you will visit an extraordinary church shaped like a seashell. This church, constructed entirely by local volunteers, was built in part with rock from the seashore. You will also enjoy a wonderful view from “Belle Anse,” where the red sandstone cliffs fight an endless battle against erosion. Every year, wind and waves carve new and amazing shapes into the cliffs. Another field trip will take you to the islands of Fatima, l’Étang-du-Nord and Cap-aux-Meules. At the port of Étang du Nord, you will see a sculpture depicting fishermen at work, pulling a boat out of the water using nothing but their combined muscle power. Étang du Nord boasts the first church built on Magdalens. It is one of the largest wooden churches in North America, and in 1992, it was declared a historical monument in Québec. Cap-aux-Meules is the major service center of the Island; here visitors will find the hospital, drugstores, a shopping center, the ferry dock and a wide range of other amenities. The name Cap-aux-Meules comes from the stone in the cape overhanging the port, which was used to make grindstones. The English population of the Islands calls Cap-aux-Meules “"Grindstone"”.|
| Lunch: ||Lunch at L’Auberge chez Denis à François on Havre-Aubert Island. The inn is located near Sandy Hook beach, right at the entrance of “La Grave” historic site. In 1874, during a terrible storm, a ship was washed ashore on Sandy Hook beach. Using lumber from a ship’s cargo, Edmond Brasset built himself a solid house, which has now been converted to an inn. The lumber preserves the warmth and richness of our island heritage.|
| Afternoon: ||FIELD TRIP: Island Exploration. Your field trip continues around Havre-Aubert followed by some free time. Stop at “La Grave, an old fishermen'’s site and one of the places where the Acadians lived when they first colonized the Islands. Today, La Grave is the location of a maritime museum, an aquarium and many interesting boutiques.
EXCURSION: Artisans. Visit les Artisans du sable, where local artists create art and other objects from white and black sand. Bassin, where the average temperature is a little higher, is the best place on the Islands for agriculture. The hills here still support some forest, reminding us that in the past, 70 percent of the Islands was treed.|
| Afternoon: ||FIELD TRIP: Havre-aux-Maisons. Enjoy a field trip to the island of Havre-aux-Maisons and learn some of the stories and legends of the Islands. Havre-aux-Maisons is known as “Treasure Island” because local legend has it that pirates buried their treasure in the round hill (la butte ronde). People from this island are recognized by their last names – Arseneau, Thériault, Cyr, Poirier – and by their accent – their pronunciation completely excludes the letter "“r".” This island is an expanse of rolling, conical hills and is one of the most beautiful in the archipelago. You will also visit the beautiful beach of Dune du Sud, the lighthouse at Échouerie, the Smokehouse and a vineyard.|
| Dinner: ||Enjoy a traditional Island supper (seafood pot-en-pot) at the inn.|
| Evening: ||PERFORMANCE: Island Music. Island musicians will thrill you with authentic Island music. You will learn typical Island songs and dances. On the Magdalens, musical evenings are an important part of the culture, and everyone has a good time. This evening will make you feel like a real “Madelinot”!|
