Prince Edward Island
The smallest of Canada’s provinces and territories, Canada’s island jewel with its red soil and green rolling hills is picturesque and perfect for touring by RV.
Prince Edward Island is in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, off the Atlantic Coast of the Canadian mainland. Renowned for sweet lobster, stunning beaches, top-rated golf and Lucy Maud Montgomery’s world-famous novel, Anne of Green Gables, PEI is alive with colour, leisurely, walkable and quaint, and people are friendly and unassuming.
An engineering marvel connects Canada’s smallest province to the mainland with the eight-mile Confederation Bridge (Canada’s longest). So now you can drive your RV to this island retreat, also the birthplace of Canadian Confederation. Alternatively, you could rent and RV on PEI in either Summerside or the island's capital, Charlottetown.
- PEI boasts more lighthouses than anywhere else (there are 76) - for something different you could park the RV and tour from one to the next by bicycle.
- Follow the silvery beaches of the North Shore along Blue Heron Drive.
- Prince Edward island National Park is most often visited in summer, but offer cross-country ski trails in winter.
Whether you hire an RV in Charlottetown to tour Prince Edward Island, or detour there from the mainland, PEI's provincial capital is the perfect blend of urban atmosphere and country charm. Think clean streets, colourful heritage homes, delicious fresh seafood, and beautifully manicured lawns.
