The Gentle Island
Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest and greenest province, and it is known for the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape. Visiting ‘the Island’ is one of the most relaxing yet varied holiday experiences you’ll ever have.
Fill your days by meandering through antique shops, farmers’ markets and pastoral villages where you can sample delicious culinary treats fresh from the ocean. Islanders have been enjoying the bounty of the sea for hundreds of years. Now it’s your turn to try world-famous Malpeque oysters, baked or on the half-shell.
History envelopes you as you stroll the streets of Charlottetown, the birthplace of Canada’s confederation and the Island’s capital city. Take a walk to Peake’s Wharf where merchants combine the best entertainment, shopping, and dining. For leisurely strolling, choose any of the sandy beaches and let your feet be caressed by warm, gentle waves.
Cycle along the Confederation Trail were you will find green pastures, highlighted by deep-red soil and bright blue of rivers, all punctuated by picturesque rural communities. Enjoy the friendliness of Islanders at community festivals, cultural events and at the Confederation Centre stage, where you can see Anne of Green Gables – the Musical™, Canada’s longest running musical.
