TRIP DESCRIPTION

The relaxing atmosphere of “the island”, as the locals fondly refer to it, will touch your spirit as soon as you land. You will quickly appreciate why a bicycle is perfect for exploring the beaches and farmlands. Although there are rolling hills, the maximum height of PEI is only 400ft! The sublime contrast of red soil, blue sea, and exuberant green conspire with country roads and beautiful beaches to create the magical distinction of this summery place.

The tour begins and ends in Charlottetown, and if you don’t see “Anne of Green Gables” beforehand or afterwards, you will have the option of attending an evening performance during your adventure. You will visit Green Gables, and enjoy the beaches of PEI National Park before heading through rolling farmland to the less travelled East coast. The East Point lighthouse, superb dining, fabulous inns, blueberry farms, pastoral landscapes, and some of the nicest long, deserted beaches you'll ever see, are the highlights of this trip. The level of comfort and cuisine are superlative. Come and discover the magic with us.
