Confederation Bridge, Bayfield

(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
An engineering feat of breathtaking proportions, Confederation Bridge remains the longest bridge in the world to cross ice covered water. Completed in 1997, the bridge links the eastern Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, the latter a notably picturesque maritime province, bursting with rugged natural beauty. Take a memorable trip along this stunning 12.9 km (8 mi) curved bridge, with spectacular views across shimmering icy plains seemingly stretching out endlessly. A shuttle bus regularly runs across the bridge, or take your own vehicle. Tolls apply when returning from Prince Edward Island. Plan your visit to Confederation Bridge and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Bayfield family vacation planner.

  • Living in PEI or being close to someone in PEI makes paying the bridge toll expensive. I lived there for years and found it very difficult to pay every time I wanted to visit family in NB. All that sa...  more »
  • We visited on a tour of the Anne of Green Gables. Construction of Confederation Bridge has become the gateway to Prince Edward Island by land into, as a bridge between New Brunswick, PEI and Canada mainland from 10/1993, was opened in 5/1997. It is a beautiful bridge.

  • It is really a long one. Enjoyed driving on it. It be better to have open railings to be able to see more water.
  • Amazing feat of engineering. Would be better if sides were shorter so view was better
  • Why do they charge people when they leave the island and not when they come in. It is if they want to let you in and make you spend money on the island and when you leave they would hit you with $46, where most of the people did not know about it and in that condition they don't have a choice but to pay the fee. Regarding the bridge, it is well maintained and very nice to drive on.
  • This was the fastest way for us to arrive and leave while visiting PEI, but the sign telling us how much the bridge would cost went by too fast for me to see. Might cause an issue for those not expecting the $40 charge. That said, I'm pretty sure almost everyone knows about it.
  • It is a spiritual journey across our magnificent bridge. Gazing across the strait one can imagine the immense effort it took to construct such a behemoth of beauty. When Sir John A. Macdonald sipped scotch and gazed upon the west I am sure he imagined that our great nation will one day build a great bridge spanning seas. Oh Canada and don't forget about the toll to leave.
