OVERVIEW

Download Itinerary

Prince Edward Island (PEI) is as pretty as a storybook: Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic Anne of Green Gables, to be exact. Like Anne Shirley, the book’s heroine, loved the world over, the island too is a redhead – from coast to coast, rich, sienna-colored soil nourishes luminous green pastures and shores are lined with rose and golden sand. Anne’s beloved landscape, a patchwork of lush rolling fields, tidy gabled farmhouses and seaside villages has barely changed.

The island is, as far as islands go, largely self-sufficient and has gained a reputation as a farm- and ocean-to-table culinary destination. Its size makes it easy to explore by car or bike – the island’s Confederation Trail is one of the world’s best cycling destinations. And, like the rest of the Maritime provinces, its people are warm and inviting.
