Welcome to Prince Edward Island! Canada's smallest province, located on the Atlantic coast, is small in size and big in character. Best known for its friendly locals, red sand beaches, potato farms, lobster dinners, and Lucy Maud Montgomery's 'Anne of Green Gables', PEI is also a cyclists dream. It was the first province to complete its section of the Trans Canada Trail, with the 'Confederation Trail' reaching from the far west to the far east coast of the island - A route which is known locally as the 'tip-to-tip' trail. The trail itself is a modified abandoned railway line, like the majority of Trans Canada Trail sections across the country, and takes you through farmland, hardwood forest, wetlands, rivers, small towns, and charming former railway stations. World Expeditions has taken highlights of this hybrid rail trail and combined them with other must-visit areas inland and along the north shore, including rolling rural back roads, the stunning Gulf Shore Ways, and through the heart of Green Gables. You have the opportunity to visit the main tourist sights as well as plenty of local gems recommended by islanders themselves. The terrain is quite gentle, especially along the hard-packed rail trail sections, but there are certainly a few paved hills to give you a bit of a challenge. Along the way you should find plenty of time to explore small artisan shops, sample local restaurants, relax on beautiful beaches, and visit little museums and interesting sites such as Avonlea Village where you can go back in time amongst heritage buildings and characters in period costumes (July and August only). Even if you're not familiar with the story, the village provides unique cultural experiences with the opportunity to try your hand at oyster shucking, and to attend a traditional Maritime kitchen party! Whatever your interest, the beautiful landscapes and friendly faces of PEI will leave you dreaming of your return to the red island.
