Do you know what Canada’s Food Island is? This endearing moniker for Prince Edward Island alludes to the excellent food that complements the island’s beautiful scenery on the continent’s east coast. A new 435-mile walking path debuted in September 2021, allowing travellers to see PEI like never before. The Island Walk, as it is officially known, circles around the island, passing through major cities like as Charlottetown and Summerside as well as beaches and charming rural communities.
By walking 12–15 miles each day, travelers may finish the full journey in 32 days. However, with so many picturesque villages and historic sites along the journey, you’ll almost certainly get sidetracked by something spectacular. If you simply want to view the highlights, there is a map of The Island Walk that will assist you in identifying the must-sees. For international tourists eager to experience the famed Canadian food, some of the most popular attractions are Anne of Green Gables’ fictitious house, lobster rolls, shucked oysters, and a typical poutine.
The Island Walk is a spot for tranquil strolls through nature, despite the abundance of things to eat and see. “Like the Camino de Santiago, The Island Walk will allow you to slow down and be present in your thoughts and daily trip while taking in the simple beauty of the island,” explains Bryson Guptill, the Island Walk’s developer. As you go from place to place, the spectacular vistas of the beach and elevated walkway over lush vegetation will keep your spirits up.
