The Island Walk

The Island Walk is a 700 kilometre journey that circumnavigates Prince Edward Island.

Hikers can complete the entire Island Walk route in one go or tackle it in sections. The Walk incorporates existing trails, such as the Confederation Trail, as well as entirely new routes along the ocean and through quiet secondary roads.

The Island Walk is divided into 32 sections with points of interest, terrain, average completion time and amenities of the area outlined for each. A growing list of multi-day itineraries is also available. The routes have the perfect landscape, both in terrain and scenery, for those who are looking for a long-distance walking adventure. By international standards, the Walk is not technically difficult with options for everyone.

Those who have taken pilgrimages in other parts of the world, be it the El Camino or the Appalachian Trail, know that such a trek is not just about the walking. It’s about what you encounter along the way – be it a most-delicious breakfast at a B&B, the vibe of a small-town coffee shop, a red dirt road canopied in trees or an expression of kindness. Guaranteed, you’ll return home differently because of the Island Walk.
