Sometimes referred to as the ‘France in North America’, Saint Pierre and Miquelon serves as the European getaway without having to cross the ocean! With a unique character, the islands even have their own time zone and use the euro as currency. Take a stroll through streets full of character to explore local patisseries and restaurants, or take a walking tour from the edge of the power station which takes you on a coastal route near many inland lakes. Stay in peaceful bed and breakfast homes and rent bikes to best explore the lunar landscapes, meadows and coastal areas. For history enthusiasts, Saint Pierre and Miquelon also offers plenty of museums and private scuba diving which allow you to discover shipwrecks off the coast.
