Island Drive & Anne of Green Gables

Your tour begins when you board your motorcoach at the pier and ride through Charlottetown, the birthplace of Canada. Sit back and relax, enjoying views as you travel en route to Cavendish, home of the Green Gables Heritage Place, the house that inspired the children’s classic. In fact, it is hard to think of Prince Edward Island without mentioning author Lucy Maud Montgomery, who lived here during the late Victorian era and it was the setting of her novel, Anne of Green Gables. Published in 1908, the tale of a spunky red haired orphan was an instant hit and from that moment on, visitors flocked to Cavendish, leading to the establishment of the national park.


The homestead immortalized in the book is exceptionally beautiful and fans will get a kick out of exploring the ground they have read so much about. Relatives of the author often offer guided tours and you never know when they will appear to greet guests! Be sure to browse the gift shop for books and souvenirs. Back on the bus, travel through the stunning park to the red sandstone cliffs, set against white capped waves. You’ll want to have your camera ready for this dramatic photo stop, which has graced many a local postcard.


Note: Walking is at your discretion, mostly on uneven ground, grassy inclines, gravel, beaten pathways, uneven terrain, cobblestone, wooden decking. Access to Green Gables main floor is via wheelchair ramp. The second floor at Green Gables is not wheelchair accessible (15 steps). Color photographs of the second floor rooms are available for those who cannot climb stairs. Tour may operate in reverse.
