Prince Edward Island Holidays

Reference CTS11839

Once you have decided to visit Prince Edward Island you'll quickly see why it's known to be so gorgeous and regal and why it's been aptly nicknamed The Garden of the Gulf. You'll find this piece of paradise tucked into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence behind Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

The island is outlined by striking red sandstone cliffs and miles of soft pristine beaches. While inland you’ll be met with rolling hills and Acadian forests.

This natural beauty has created a generous list of activities that nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and history lovers will adore. Along the coastline, you can partake in a range of water sports, including kayaking and boating. Then when you are hungry, you can stop by one of the many waterfront seafood restaurants, where you can enjoy delicious delicacies that were caught just that day!

Away from the coast, you’ll find Prince Edward Island National Park. This protected area is home to extensive and fragile coastal dune system, wetlands and various natural habitats in which numerous rare plant species are found. There is also unusually large and mobile parabolic dunes – which are very rare in North America.

Impressive Scenery

So impressive the scenery on Prince Edward Island, it inspired one of Canada’s most famous pieces of literature: Anne of Green Gables. On the island, you'll find the real-life locations that inspired some of the fictional locations - such as Balsam Hollow, which inspired the Haunted Woods and Campbell Pond, which inspired The Lake of Shining Water.

And finally, the province is the birthplace of the Canadian Confederation. At the Province House National Historic Site, you’ll find the Confederation Centre of the Arts located next door. There you can wander through a replica of Confederation Chamber and watch Parks Canada's award-winning film, A Building of Destiny, to learn more about the history of Province House and the Charlottetown Conference.
