Trans-Canada Highway 1 in Prince Edward Island inspires an unhurried pace and a leisurely exploration of sapphire water along the coastline as well as rolling countryside and shady forested parks. Extensive farmland unfurls between the shore and dense wooded parks along the route.

Begin your Prince Edward Island journey with a relaxing vista of the impressive Northumberland Strait traversed by the massive Confederation Bridge. Warm red sand beaches lead up to rocky sandstone cliffs that contrast with green pastures beyond. Trans-Canada 1 takes you across farms that stretch as far as you can see, broken by a few small towns and parks with lush foliage.
