Seasons in Prince Edward Island

New Discoveries Every Season

Spring is time for a fresh start with packages available for golf, culinary and family adventure. Everyone loves summer on the Island; it's a paradise with warm breezes and festivals and events from tip to tip. Fall is the time to savour the harvest of Canada’s Food Island. In winter, you’ll find a sanctuary where you can slow the pace to reconnect, dine on exceptional comfort food or gear up with an outdoor adventure.

Things really start to heat up in spring!

Bright lupins line the roadside and tulips are everywhere. Plan to spend time on the trails or the fairways. We love spring, not only because lobster season kicks off, but it also marks the beginning of theatre season.

Summer is spectacular!

In summer, enjoy endless beach days, parades and exhibitions and warm salt-air breezes. Go for a round of golf and savour delicious seafood.

You don't want to miss PEI in fall!

When the air begins to cool and the leaves start to change, it’s time to savour the harvest on Canada’s Food Island. The Fall Flavours Festival is a celebration of food and culture, including the ever-popular PEI International Shellfish Festival, described as “the biggest kitchen party in Atlantic Canada."
