Canada land of adventure

Mention Prince Edward Island and many people envision a rare harmony of rural and maritime landscapes, the epitome of serene, country life.

Set back from the peaceful roads and tucked away behind rolling valleys of farmland lie picturesque little fishing villages, adorable white clapboard churches, and the pulsing glow of a lighthouse towering over the sea from isolated rocky outcrops. Most striking in these charming scenes is the brilliant palette of colours: the vibrant yellow and green of the fields falling over the cliffs of deep rust red into the lapis blue of the sea.

Bathed to the north by the Gulf of St. Lawrence and to the south by the Strait of Northumberland, this island is above all known for its magnificent white-sand dunes and beaches, often deserted and extending between sea and land as far as the eye can see. It goes without saying that these ribbons of sand are among the most beautiful on the east coast of the continent. They offer great spots for swimming, long walks and discoveries. The beaches may be what initially attracts most visitors, but they quickly discover the many other treasures Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.) has to offer. For starters, the small capital city of Charlottetown, whose architecture and unique atmosphere give it an antique charm; from there, the possibilities are virtually endless: the friendliest fresh lobster feasts you can imagine, the storybook world Anne of Green Gables, the kindness of the inhabitants, and the richness of the magnificent plants and wildlife of Prince Edward Island National Park.

Prince Edward Island is about 255km long, making it the smallest Canadian province.
