Prince Edward Island may be Canada’s smallest province, but it’s packed full of adventures and attractions to keep you entertained for a week or more. Think rolling green fields, bright red soil, pristine beaches and quaint fishing villages as well as everyone’s favourite red-haired heroine, Anne of Green Gables. Couple with this warm hospitality, delectable seafood, an abundance of authentic hands-on experiences, and it’s easy to see why Prince Edward Island is so popular.

Itinerary

With direct daily flights from London Heathrow to Halifax in the holiday season, Halifax is Atlantic Canada’s traditional gateway to the world. This maritime city combines charming old wooden homes and Victorian parks with modern shopping centres. The main attraction is the waterfront where you will see tall ships to naval vessels in the harbour, and old warehouses have become shops and museums along the lively boardwalk. Staying at: The Sutton Place Hotel, Halifax
