Every travel destination has its list of things you must do. In Prince Edward Island, it's get outside! To spend all your time indoors on PEI would be like going to a great art museum to read the newspaper. What you'd miss! Running, walking, biking. There are 25 bicycle rental shops on the Island, and with good reason: cycling is a great way to get around. The highest elevation is 142 meters (465 feet) above sea level, with much of the land rising and falling in gentle slopes. Add the Confederation Trail with its 357 kilometres (221 miles) of flat, groomed surface and you have a biker's and hiker's dream. Canoeing, kayaking, fishing. The Island is surrounded by warm summer water. If you're not in the ocean, you'll want to be on it. (Did we mention snorkeling, swimming, seal watching or parasailing?)
