Then on to Caribou where we board the ferry to cross to Canada’s charming Island Province, Prince Edward Island. Before travelling into Charlottetown, we tour the Macphail House at Orwell, the homestead of a great Canadian, Andrew Macphail, who joined the Army at age 50, after the outbreak of World War I and was knighted for his service. A guided tour of his Home will tell his incredible story and there will be time to stroll the beautiful gardens on your own. (B)

A casual morning and time to explore on your own in Charlottetown. After lunch, we tour Deep Roots Distillery where many unique blends are created from their own Apple Orchard and many other fruits before we continue to the Northwest corner of this small Island Province and visit the Stompin’ Tom Centre at Skinners Pond. A man more Canadian than the Maple Leaf, his story is of a true iconic Canadian.
