Enjoy a free morning to explore this charming town. Then, after lunch on your own, we’ll depart for Prince Edward Island National Park, a spectacular enclave of red and white sand beaches, woodlands, salt marshes, and rugged headlands. The park’s ecosystems support more than 400 plant species; mammals such as fox, weasels, mink, and beaver; and more than 300 bird species, including the endangered piping plover. Within the park, we continue on to the fishing village of North Rustico Harbour to see its iconic lighthouse.
Unforgettable Moment: Then, step back in time on a guided visit to Green Gables Heritage Place, located in Cavendish, the site of the homestead that inspired author Lucy Maud Montgomery to pen her beloved literary masterpiece, Anne of Green Gables. Since its publication in 1906, the book, its sequels, and many film and stage adaptations have continued to inspire generations of young women around the world with its feisty, kind, and intelligent red-headed heroine. You’ll go inside the charming farmhouse and see Anne’s rooms set up as they were described by the author, and imagine yourself living in a simpler time and place.
Cultural Discovery: Dinner tonight will be a culinary and cultural treat: an authentic PEI maritime lobster dinner featuring seafood chowder, PEI mussels, sweet steamed Atlantic lobster, and more.
