Island Walk by Bike Packages

PEI’s gaining a reputation as the walking & cycling capital of Canada, with designated recreational trail infrastructure growing every year. All of MacQueen’s Island Walk bicycle tour packages are customizable, and can be shortened to cover fewer Island Walk sections, or with less frequent luggage transfers if preferred. If keeping costs down and lowering your carbon footprint is a priority, we have options for rental packages with panniers as an alternative to prepaid luggage transfers. You can stay in a lighthouse, a former church or convent, a yurt, a train caboose or try glamping at an actual dock. Not to mention an array of comfortable, historic and authentic inns and B&Bs hosted by some of PEI’s best hospitality professionals.

We recommend planning time for a test ride in Charlottetown before embarking on your Island Walk by bicycle adventure. Using the designated Island Walk routes, we offer 2 different tip-to-tip trips including shuttle from/to Charlottetown at the beginning/end. Four other journeys begin & end in Charlottetown and most include the option for daily luggage transfers. A couple of properties we’ve chosen have 2-night minimum stays, so we’ve designed loops out of those properties where you can explore the local surroundings and settle in a little more. We’ve chosen accommodation partners who either provide, can arrange for, or are in close proximity to evening meals.

Our team of local resident cyclists takes care of booking the highest quality rental equipment with an emergency repair kit, tried & true accommodations, expert route planning with a curated list of some of our favorite local options for dining and activities, plotting downloadable routes for your trip, transferring your luggage between inns and providing a list of local bicycle repair service providers at the ready should you require mechanical assistance during your journey. We take care of the details so you just enjoy the ride. Travel at your pace with confidence in MacQueen’s.

Your final itinerary will include links to some of our favorite local culinary highlights, activities, cultural venues and more, allowing you to customize your Island Walk bike adventure to your own particular tastes and interests. Suggestions include (but are hardly limited to) local wineries, distilleries, craft breweries, dairy bars, seafood shacks, clam digs/bakes, river cruises, or lobster boils aboard a fishing boat accompanied by the lilting tunes of a fiddling captain and his family, and some of the finest dining and local fare available on our fair isle.
