Confederation Bridge, Bayfield

4.2
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.

  • An easy drive from NB you don’t see too much while driving. There is a good information center and lots of shops as soon as you get off the bridge. You pay when you leave the island.  more »
  • The way the fastest and the most convenient on Prince Edward Island. The price is to be paid when you leave PEI at a toll booth. We are traffic at reasonable speed but ban to stop to take pictures. For the pictures there is a nearby trail side New Brunswick tourist office which has a large car park and toilets.
