Prince Edward Island Holidays

Prince Edward Island holidays will offer you a perfect blend of relaxation and nature. The island is Canada’s smallest province and has been immortalised by L.M Montgomery’s literary classic Anne of Green Gables. Wander over rolling green hills before ambling through quaint villages. Watch the sun as it sets over scenic farmlands, and stretch out on sandy beaches. Be sure to stop and enjoy picturesque views from the island’s iconic red cliffs.

Prince Edward Island boasts eleven hundred kilometres of shoreline. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway then we recommend you head to the quaint Brackley Beach. Picnic by the golden sand dunes. Enjoy a romantic meal for two at the nearby Dunes Studio Gallery and Café and walk it off with an after-dinner amble in the stunning gardens.
If you’re travelling as a family then you will fall in love with PEI National Park. At over 60km in length, there’s a whole world to be discovered that is suitable for all ages. You can hike through woodland that bursts with native plants and animals, or try your hand at kayaking in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Holidays in PEI: Packed with Culture, Cuisine and Curiosity

Explore Prince Edward Island’s rich history with a trip to Lennox Island. You’ll learn about PEI’s aboriginal heritage and if you visit in August, you’ll be able to visit the annual Abegweit Pow Wow, an event dedicated to celebrating the culture. You’ll learn the details of the renowned 1864 Charlottetown Conference that led to the unification of the British North American colonies, and is one of the most significant events in Canadian history.

Enjoy an evening of entertainment at Charlottestown’s Confederation Centre of the Arts. By day why not wander the art exhibitions and enjoy a spot of souvenir shopping in the gift shop before you leave? By night you can delight in the upbeat plays and musicals. We especially recommend the PEI Symphony Orchestra for a romantic evening.

Stroll hand in hand down the many Scenic Heritage Roads. Head to Millman Road in Irishtown where you can stroll through daisy-speckled meadows while the delightfully delicate scents of apple blossom fills your nostrils. Head under forest canopies before lapping up the panoramic views from the high hills. Finish your day with some fine dining: indulge in a luxurious meal of fresh lobster, accompanied by organic vegetables grown on the island.

If you’re not ready to give up this wonderful relaxed pace of island life, book an island hopping adventure. Cruise across mainland Canada to the west coast and uncover the delights of Vancouver Island. The luxury of PEI holidays can be continued with a trip to the Galapagos Islands and for unspoilt beaches, head to Florida Keys.
