About the Island Walk
The Island Walk is a 700 km walking trail that loops around PEI. It takes approximately 32 days to complete if you walk 20-25 kilometers per day. However, not all walkers have to plan to walk 20-25 km per day. There are many opportunities to complete the Island Walk-in sections and spend more time exploring certain areas that appeal to you.
The trail will take you along the outer perimeter of the Island, with a mix of inland and coastal sections of the trail, and will allow you to see both tips of the Island at North Cape and East Point. The trail intertwines through PEI’s two major cities, Charlottetown and Summerside, and also through many small communities throughout the Island. The trail describes a wide circle that allows walkers to end the walk where they started.
The Island Walk route takes you along the ocean, much of the Confederation Trail, red dirt roads, beaches, and quiet secondary roads throughout PEI. The Island Walk has the perfect landscape, both in terrain and scenery, for those who are looking for a long-distance walking adventure. Because the walk is not technically difficult, it has options for everyone. Complete the entire Island Walk route or tackle it in sections. Visit our itineraries page for more information on the Island Walk and options for sections to complete.
