See our Small Group programs.
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.
From literary fantasy to real history, artistry and lives, explore the red rocks and Green Gables of Prince Edward Island and the white sand dunes and salt marshes of the Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Experience ecosystems at Point-de-l’Est and PEI national parks and learn about the fickle ocean, from its bounty to the role of shipwrecks in founding the local communities.


• Experience an evening of island music as you tap your feet to the jigs and reels of Acadian tunes.
• Get inside the Madelinots’ reliance on the sea as you hear their stories and try your hand digging for clams.
• Follow Ann’s footsteps at Green Gables and relive the story of 10 millennia of history, from Mi’kmaq natives to English, French and Celtic colonists to the birth of Canada in Charlottetown.
