Visitors should set aside at least three days to enjoy the best of Prince Edward Island (PEI) whose unique transportation layout itself readily suggests an itinerary.

Most people arrive on the western side of the island via the Confederation Bridge, one of the world’s longest and a tourist attraction in its own right, then tour the island before leaving via the the Northumberland Ferry from eastern PEI to Nova Scotia.


Prince Edward Island highlights

  • Prince Edward Island National Park. Fantastic beaches; the warmest salt water in Canada; Green Gables, the house of Anne of Green Gables; gentle hiking trails; and a legendary Green Gables Golf Course make this park PEI’s top tourist attraction.
  • Charlottetown. The province’s capital is one of the nicest small cities in Canada featuring a bustling harbourfront, Confederation Centre, great restaurants and comfortable inns.
  • The Confederation Trail. To really get to know PEI spend a few days cycling the island from end to end on one of North America’s great non-motorized trails.
  • The Fall Flavours Festival. Come here in autumn and sample culinary delights from land and sea in what is rapidly becoming a must attend event for Canada’s top chefs.
