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.

Before and After your PEI walking tour Trip

OLS provides a free concierge service to our walk tour guests. We will assist, recommend and book accommodations on your behalf for any nights you require before or after your tour with us ends. We will book these accommodations at our partner pricing and pass this price onto you with no additional markup. These additional night accommodations can be added to your cycle tour and invoiced with us so that your entire trip is simplified on one invoice with us. If you are interested in this service please notify us at the time of booking and we will be happy to assist. 


OLS is a locally owned company. There is a good chance when you call or email you will be speaking with the owner who was born and raised on PEI. This gives us local knowledge of routes, accommodations, points of interest, restaurants, and unique relationships that are difficult to replicate from a tour operator based outside PEI. 

OLS is a bicycle shop which means we have access to the best bicycles available. Our rental bikes are replaced at the beginning of each rental season and are tuned up after each rental by our certified on-site bike mechanics to ensure a perfect ride! 

In addition, OLS provides the most detailed maps but also includes a Garmin GPS device which provides turn-by-turn directions similar to a car GPS. This ensures you get to each night’s accommodations stress-free and do not miss any points of interest along the way. 

We are located at 330 University Avenue; a short 15 min walk from the Charlottetown Seaport, a 10-minute drive from the Charlottetown Airport, and 3 blocks from the nearest entrance to the Confederation Trail.

All deposits are non-refundable.  In the unlikely event of cancellation, we will work with you to reschedule and find alternate dates.

Cell coverage is very good throughout PEI and on the Confederation Trail with very few areas with no service.

PEI has a 15% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) tax that is added to all prices. 

Yes! OLS can book additional nights prior to, or after, your cycling tour. We would be happy to make recommendations on best accommodations and areas to stay.

Yes. If you book a tour with OLS we do offer free storage of your (reasonable amount) of luggage. 

Of course!  This is your tour.  You can make as many changes as you want to the tour and accommodations until you are completely satisfied with the tour. This includes switching to a different tour if you are not completely satisfied with the tour you initially selected.

If you are ready to start the booking process or if you have questions on which tour you should select call or email us; we will be happy to assist!
