Two vacations in one – Newfoundland and France! A mere 25 kilometres off the southeast coast of Newfoundland you will find the French Islands of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon.

After several days exploring St. John’s and the Burin Peninsula, you’ll hop over to the French islands of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon, and you’ll find yourself suddenly transported into Europe. For a place that resides so closely to Canada, these islands have fiercely clung to their French identity and have shown no signs of letting go. Meander through colourful streets and narrow alleyways, grab a glass of wine in a small pub, and swing by the local patisserie for some delicious pain du chocolat. Don’t forget to learn a friendly French greeting or two!
