Winter Activities in Prince Edward Island

Don’t hibernate

Activate on the Island in winter!

When the snow falls, adventure calls on Prince Edward Island. Whether you choose to hike the trails, hit the slopes, ride a fat bike or slow the pace with a horse and sleigh ride, it’s all about togetherness and appreciating the great outdoors in winter. Come for lively events and entertainment, comfort foods and endless trails. We promise, there isn’t a sight more charming than this Island dusted with snow.

Hiking and Snowshoeing

From tip to tip, our small towns, rural communities and urban areas are abundant with winter trails. The rolling hills of Bonshaw, the stunningly tall snow-covered trees of Winter River, walking parallel to the running water along the Dunk River at Scales Pond… just a few of the tranquil spots to discover. Snowshoes recommended.
