Prince Edward Island

Where serenity is spirited

Invigorating ocean adventures, incredible red sand beaches and green pastoral landscapes — Canada’s smallest province has many delights. Add in a relaxed pace of life and welcoming locals, and it’s no wonder why Prince Edward Island has long captured the hearts of travellers. 

Epekwitk is one of the earliest names of what’s now called Prince Edward Island, which means “lying in the water.” The name comes from one of the largest Indigenous groups on the island: the Mi’kmaq, who have called the land home for 12,000 years.

There are a variety of ways to broaden your perspectives by experiencing the island through the perspective of the first inhabitants on the land. Learn how to make a traditional craft from an Elder. Feel the energy of a Traditional Gathering showcasing Mi’kmaw culture. Discover the methods for baking Bannock bread under the sand in Lennox Island, while listening to stories of the Mi'kmaq way of life.
