Days 5-6 Prince Edward Island
This morning you visit the beautiful Hopewell Rocks where these incredible rock formations make for some amazing photographs. From here you drive past the forests and farmlands of New Brunswick, crossing the Gulf of St Lawrence to Prince Edward Island. This is the smallest of all the Canadian provinces with a total population of 141,000. Often referred to as 'PEI', the province actually consists of one major island called Prince Edward Island as well as a collection of smaller islands. It's also referred to as the 'Birthplace of Confederation' as the Charlottetown Conference held in 1864 was one of a few events that established the framework which led the British colonies to confederation in 1867.
Enjoy free time to relax and choose from various activities at this popular summer retreat such as biking and beach combing. Prince Edward Island was the childhood home of author Lucy Maud Montgomery, whose best-selling novel, 'Anne of Green Gables' (published in 1908), was set here. It's possible to join a tour of Green Gables House, as well as stroll around on the Balsom Woods and Haunted Hollows trails that feature in the book.
