Winter on Prince Edward Island is a frost-kissed wonderland, inviting personal enrichment. Luxurious spas, invigorating yoga, forest therapy walks, outdoor adventure, and even goat snuggles await. The key is not to over schedule. Slow the pace and take time for connection and reflection.
Charming Winter Escapes
Find pure joy at Island Hill Farm in Hampshire. Book a goat yoga class, play with adorable animals and learn about their ethical and sustainable farming practices. A truly heartwarming and enriching experience!
In western PEI, the lively trip of Nigerian Dwarf goats at Beach Goats, don't slowdown in winter, they just put on coats! Snowshoe with the goats or just play beside the ocean-view campfire.
Explore the enchanting TreeTop Haven in North Tryon, where you can stay amidst a majestic forest. Discover the magic of nature, finding solace and connection in the tranquility of the woods.

Our Authentic PEI Experiences offer unique perspectives on the traditions and way of life on the Island. Meet artisans, historians, fishers and a host of other characters who love what they do and want to share it with you. The memories will last a lifetime.
Frozen in Time
Get cozy for a horse and sleigh ride at picturesque Orwell Corner Historic Village. Warm up with hot cider around a fire before coming into the hall to learn the art of bread making (and tasting). Work off the indulgences with a dance lesson, including the famous Souris Set. You’ll know the meaning of kneading and do si do before you go!
Painting Montgomery’s Island
Develop your watercolour skills with accomplished artist Julia Purcell in her studio in beautiful Clyde River. Learn to create seascapes and landscapes with only the three colours (ruby, emerald & sapphire); the same colours that L.M. Montgomery used to describe her Island.

The Black Cultural Society of PEI will celebrate Black History Month with education and networking events in Charlottetown throughout February.
