EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Discover “The Gentle Island”, Canada’s smallest and greenest province. Led by experts, do more than observe the Island way of life, experience it yourself as we explore harbor towns, charming fishing villages, quaint farms and the historic city of Charlottetown. Meet artists, storytellers, historians and musicians inspired by the Island’s beauty, mystique, and fascinating history. Talk with chefs as they prepare feasts from the bounty of land and sea. Visit unique craft studios, bottle houses, fisheries, museums, beaches, and the actual Green Gables. Learn about rum-runners, lighthouse keepers, basket weavers, organic farmers, lobster fishermen, gardeners and oyster shuckers. Join in the fun at a festive and traditional PEI “ceilidh.”
