Tour Itinerary

Your tour begins with a brief drive through historic Charlottetown as you head to Anne’s land and your visit to Green Gables House – the old farm site that inspired L.M. Montgomery’s first novel, Anne of Green Gables published in 1908. Please be aware that this is for a photo stop only and that the parking lot and entrance to the site is under construction but we will still be able to get some great shots of the house.

Along the way view rolling farmlands, stunning seascapes, tiny villages and bustling harbors as we tour the North Shore area along the Green Gables Shore (scenic drive). Your local Driver-Guide will bring the scenery alive with history, facts, and stories about the areas as you pass by and during short visits. 

Brief photo stops at the quaint little fishing village of North Rustico, lighthouses, and the not-to-be-missed Cavendish Beach

A stop that can’t be missed will be at the PEI Preserve Company, located in one of Canada’s prettiest villages. Enjoy a taste of world-class preserves from locally grown fruit in this converted 1913 creamery. You’ll finish the day with a beautiful drive through the rolling hills on our return to Charlottetown. This tour is an excellent combination of North Shore scenery and a visit to Green Gables National Historic site.

Don’t forget, this tour can be customized to your liking. Just let us know when you book the tour and we will be happy to work with you to create your perfect itinerary!
