The Confederation Trail stretches from tip to tip of Prince Edward Island, traversing through forests, wetlands, villages and waterways, for 173 miles (279km). Almost entirely flat with a finely crushed gravel surface, the trail is perfect for walkers, cyclists and even those in wheelchairs. Visitors enjoy the island's natural splendour, lush flora and abundant flora in peace and tranquillity.

In winter, the trail is a favourite with snowmobilers and provides a picturesque route through the province, from Tignish to Elmira. The less adventurous can choose to follow the trail for some of the way and stop off to rest and grab a bite in one of the many villages connected by the trail.
