7. Saint-Pierre and Miquelon
For a taste of France without crossing the Atlantic, sail the short 25 kilometre distance from Fortune, Newfoundland and step foot on the French territory of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon. You’re not in Canada anymore! Nestled in the entrance to Newfoundland’s Fortune Bay, the islands are the only remaining piece of New France’s colonial empire. Here French is the native tongue and France’s blue, white and red flag proudly ripples in the breeze. Immerse yourself in French culture, indulge in delicious lobster and mussels fresh from the waters of the North Atlantic and experience France in a whole new way – without leaving Canada too far behind. Just don’t forget to pack your passport and plenty of Euros for souvenir shopping.
