A 435-mile Walking Route Opened in Canada — and It Comes With Spectacular Views, Seafood Stops, and Charming Small Towns


Avid hikers have another reason to visit Canada’s eastern coast in 2022. Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.), affectionately known as “Canada’s Food Island,” is inviting travelers to circumnavigate its idyllic shoreline by foot on The Island Walk. The 435-mile trail, which opened last September, loops around the perimeter of the country’s smallest province — and with plenty of stops at sandy beaches, scenic viewpoints, and charming small towns, it has something for everyone.
