Activities and experiences

Prince Edward Island National Park

Known best for its broad, sandy beaches, PEI National Park is more than just sun and surf. Extensive walking trails and boardwalks, as well as 20 kilometres of paved multi-use trail for cyclists, slice through varied coastal terrain, from saltwater marsh to parabolic dunes to Acadian forest. With three distinct regions overall, PEI National Park brings together the best of Atlantic Canada. 

On September 23, 2022, Fiona’s ferocious forces left an unprecedented wake of destruction across the province. In PEI National Park, storm impacts included the falling of thousands of trees, road and beach access washouts, and the significant erosion of the park’s shoreline, including sand dunes.
