Confederation Bridge, Bayfield

(4.1/5 based on 200+ 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.
