Activities and Attractions
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, hiking, biking. There are several 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 449 kilometres (279 miles) of flat, rolled stone dust surface and you have a cyclists and hiker's dream.
The Island is surrounded by warm summer water. If you're not in the ocean, you'll want to be on it. Try some canoeing, kayaking or fishing. And did we mention snorkeling, swimming, seal watching or para-sailing? Sandy beaches, warm ocean waters, lively fun parks and an overall casual atmosphere make up your Island playground.
