No sooner will you arrive on Prince Edward Island than you’ll see why its beaches and farmland are best explored by bicycle. A sublime contrast of red soil, blue sea and exuberant green — combined with country roads and beautiful beaches — create a magical character for you to savor up close. There’s plenty of variety for beginners and experienced cyclists alike, from Charlottetown and Prince Edward Island National Park to the less-traveled but picturesque east coast and its fabulous inns, blueberry farms, pastoral landscapes and some of the longest, emptiest beaches you’ll ever see during a magical week.


• Cycle along the Confederation Trail into Prince Edward Island National Park to ride along beachside trails.
• Discover the diverse habitats in the Dunelands Trail area, including wetlands, forests, beaches and more.
• Local experts bring to life the early history of Charlottetown’s place as the “Birthplace of Confederation.”
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
