Detailed Itinerary

This tour is for the ultimate Anne fan but will also delight those fascinated by the beauty of PEI as described by The Anne of Green Gables author Lucy Maude Montgomery in her novels.

Driving through the picturesque Island countryside you will view rolling farmlands, coastal views and villages coming to life as author Lucy Maude described them in her novels. You will enjoy your first stop of the day at Silver Bush, and the Anne of Green Gables Museum owned by the descendants of Lucy Maude. You will have the opportunity to explore the homestead, the beautiful flower gardens, and enjoy views of the Lake of Shining Waters.

On our way to the next stop, we will make a photo stop at French River, one of the most photographed places on the Island.  You will also take a photo stop at Montgomery’s birthplace in New London which has been preserved as a historic site.

No Anne Adventure would be complete without a visit to the charming Green Gables House, National historic site located in Cavendish. The area was the inspiration for the village of Avonlea in many of Lucy Maud’s novels. You will be able to enjoy the well-kept gardens as well as tour the main farmhouse, barns, outbuildings and extensive grounds. Admissions to all sites are included. On your return to Charlottetown, a trip through the national park and the fishing village of North Rustico will complete your day.
