Your first three days are spent paddling the transparent waters off PEI's Eastern Shore, where long, sandy beaches mix with red sandstone cliffs. Each night, you'll stay in the Island's finest inns, with breathtaking views and fine dining. Next, you'll have two days cycling through Prince Edward Island's peaceful, pastoral landscape.

Day One:

You will be picked up from your hotel in Charlottetown at 8:30 am. You will meet and get to know your guides during a short shuttle to the launch site on Boughton Bay. There, we'll pack the kayaks and the guides will get you started with some basic paddling instruction onshore. Once on the water, we'll take some time to offer paddling techniques that will help you become more comfortable in your boat. A couple of hours' paddling brings us to our lunch spot, where you can expect a delicious picnic lunch on the beach. Another couple of hours' paddling brings us to the Inn at Spry Point, originally built by the New Alchemists as an experimental microcosm of self-sufficiency. You'll dine under a canopy of grapevines in the unique dining room. The Inn offers beautiful vistas, handsome rooms, and woodland trails.

Day Two:

After a country breakfast, it's back in the kayaks as we paddle past sandy white beaches interrupted by breathtaking red sandstone cliffs. There are plenty of bird watching opportunities along this stretch of shore as we will paddle past cormorant colonies and possibly see bald eagles. A picnic lunch and some time on the beach will replenish our energy before we paddle on to the spectacular Inn at Bay Fortune, the former home of Broadway playwright Elmer Harris and other actors and authors. It is described by Where to Eat in Canada as"...overlooking the sea, a snug sitting room with an open fire and a dining room that...is without question the best on the Island".

Day Three:

After an elegant breakfast at the Inn, we set out this morning for the town of Souris. There are some nice areas for snorkeling along this part of the coast - try to spot some lobster and crabs. The shallow waters even allow you to glimpse such marine creatures from your kayak. The many inlets and coves on this section of coast allow a view of the Island's patchwork green pastures, red fields, and bright wildflowers that border on the ocean. You'll be received at the port of Souris at either the 4-star comforts of the McLean House Inn or at the Matthew House Inn, both gorgeous B&Bs renowned for their hospitality. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to dine in Souris or we'll drive for dinner in Montague or St. Peter's.

Day Four:

You'll start your day with a delicious breakfast before we fit you to your bicycle. With smooth tyres, flat handlebars and 24 speeds, these bikes are comfortable and easy to ride. There are lots of route options, so you can pick the distances and type of roads you wish to ride: from paved coastal roads all the way around East Point to 40 km of car-free Confederation Trail inland. If time allows, we'll visit Greenwich National Park and explore the spectacular dune system there. We'll stop for the night at Mount Stewart and the Trailside Inn, a cozy inn known for bringing in local musicians of an evening.

Day Five:

Choose between 30 km of traffic-free trail into Charlottetown, or a longer ride through the Brackley Beach area. A visit to Prince Edward Island National Park and its spectacular beaches is complemented by the Island's best High Tea at Dalvay-by-the-Sea. We'll finish on the Charlottetown waterfront, with an ice cream at Cow's. Yum!

Notes:
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
