Your outdoor adventure awaits whether you choose to take a flying tour of the region in a four-seater Cessna, or to cycle along the 110 km of Confederation Trail from Summerside to North Cape.
We have hundreds of kilometers of shoreline and waterways to explore. Paddle Casumpec Bay out to the sand dunes. Explore the bends and twists of a river estuary – and get out your camera to catch the perfect shot of a diving kingfisher, or soaring eagle. Visitors can hire a local to go clamming and beach-combing. You can follow up the adventure with a seafood boil on the beach. Be sure to drive the coast, exploring all the red dirt roads that lead to secluded beaches, perfect for picnics.
Hike and bird-watch at the multiple Provincial Parks. We have an extensive system of manicured trails, formally named the Confederation Trail, but called the “Rails to Trails” by locals. Try your hand at geocaching, a popular activity along the Rails to Trails.
Fall is a great time to visit for outdoor adventure – the campgrounds are quiet, the foliage is spectacular, and we have u-pick orchards and food festivals to experience.
Winter holds its own promise of adventure with sleigh rides at Mill River, and snowshoeing and cross country skiing trails at our Provincial Parks. The Snowmobiling Association keeps about 550 miles of Confederation Trail well groomed for snowmobiling enthusiasts.
From Route 2 on the Central Coastal Drive (south shore) just east of Summerside, turn south onto Route 1A and drive for 10 km (6.3 miles). Turn right onto Route 171 (Callbeck Street), and then after 1.9 km (1.2 miles) turn right on Route 112 towards Lower Bedeque. Follow Route 112 to its end where you will see the Indian Head Lighthouse at the end of the breakwater. At low tide it is sometimes possible to walk out to the lighthouse.
From Route 2 turn onto Water Street at Reads Corner. Turn left at the intersection with lights at MacEwen Road and Glover Shore Road. Turn onto Glover Shore Road and you will see it a short distance away on your right.
