Confederation Bridge, Bayfield

4.3
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.

  • The little shops beside the confederation bridge on the Prinec Edward Island side had a chill coastal vibe.
  • Very cool place! Before we crossed we walked the sandy beach and grabbed shells! Ride was low and the jelly fish were everywhere! Lol...
  • Great structure which makes it easy to get to the island quickly. I do miss taking the ferry but this is a good and quick substitute.
  • An engineering wonder that every canadian should travel in their liftime!
  • We visited some Family in pei and we crossed the bridge 3 times. It's amazing and very safe. It is very well maintained. If you break down and for some reason don't have a phone there are emergency phones every 500 meters or so. There is also a generous shoulder on each side if you broke down and had to pull over. There is also plenty of lighting.
