Our journey takes us down a scenic route wedged between rolling green pastures and stretches of red sandy shores as we are on our way to explore two lighthouses that adorn the Eastern coastline and taste award-winning wines of Prince Edward Island.
Point Prim lighthouse, a National Heritage Site, was built in 1845 and is the only round brick lighthouse in Canada. The adventurous can brave the winding staircase for a gorgeous view of the Northumberland Strait and the Hillsborough Bay.
Wood Islands Lighthouse offers a fun, interactive look into Island history with eleven different themed rooms to pass through in the attached museum, which in the past housed the light keeper and his family. Learn about the lucrative rum-running business of the Prohibition Era and make sure to ask about the phantom Burning Ship.
Rossignol Estate Winery boasts award-winning wines “as unique and beautiful as the Island.” Try the always adored wild blueberry in their offered wine tastings or receive recommendations for the perfect Island wine and culinary pairings, afterwards enjoy a leisurely walk through the shoreline estate.
