Confederation Trail

The West Prince section of the Confederation Trail has lots to offer the outdoor enthusiast. Starting in Tignish and winding throughout communities of West Prince and into East Prince, you will find the longest continuous trail on P.E.I. with a stone dust topping - 127 KM in total. 

What a wonderful way to unwind, get some exercise and enjoy the fresh air in a safe and  relaxing environment. Pack a lunch or plan to stop at one of the communities where luncheon facilities are available.  For those who enjoy bird watching, or if fishing is a favorite past-time, you won't be disappointed. Some of the best known fishing holes are along the trail. 

Guests of Driftwood Country Cottages will have bikes available to them to tour the area.

Wind Energy Institute of Canada (WEICan)

At North Cape, WEICan, a joint initiative of the federal and provincial governments, has been involved in the development and testing of wind energy systems for more than 25 years. A number of wind turbines can be  viewed operating at the site as they convert the energy contained in moving wind, into electricity and feed it into the local electrical grid. This wind generated electricity helps reduce the amount of electricity generated from fossil fuels but the primary function of WEICan is to conduct research and development (R&D) in wind energy technology. Typically, WEICan has a number of R&D and testing projects, each investigating different aspects of technology underway. Information on activities at WEICan, and on wind energy in general, is available at the North Cape Interpretative Centre.
