What is the best time of the Fall for the foliage colors in PEI?

Answer by:

Hi Stan!

The fall foliage will sneak up on us and feel like it’s around for some time but the brightest peak time is really only a week or two long. It can be difficult to plan for and the leaves are on the ground all too soon.

October is the month to focus on. The colours tend to be fantastic around the second week of October and start to fall heavily around the by the last week of the month. It highly depends on the year.

Some of the better places to see the colours is driving our Scenic Heritage Roads marked on the visitor's highway map. If you time it right, you’ll travel these narrow dirt roads under a canopy of reds and yellows.
