    This is the Confederation Bridge one of the two ways to get to Prince Edward Island. The other way is by ferry (see transportation for more info). It is almost a tourist attraction this bridge, it is 12.9 kilometers long and dates from 1997. It joins Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island and Cape Jourimain, New-Brunswick. It is the longest bridge over ice covered waters in the world. You can find more information on the website :

    How to get here

    Confederation Bridge


    There are two ways to get to the island :
    The first one is taking the confederation bridge. When you come from New Brunswick and go to P.E.I. crossing the bridge is for free. On the way back to New Brunswick you have to pay toll. More information on the bridge and about the toll you can find on this website :
    www.confederationbridge.com

    The other way to go to P.E.I. is to take the ferry. The ferry is between Caribou, Nova Scotia to Wood Islands, P.E.I and goes 18 times daily in season.

    Drive on the Confederation Beach to New Brunswick

    I recommend you atleast look at the Confederation Bridge from either end of it, but driving on it is an adventure! The bridge is 12.9 km long, and it took us about 10 minutes to drive across it. There isn't much to see besides the ocean, but to be ontop of such a structure is very exciting.

    A 13-kilometre engineering...

    A 13-kilometre engineering marvel, the Confederation Bridge is a very quick, convenient and dramatic way to arrive or depart the Island. Connecting from New Brunswick, the Bridge brings you to the town of Borden-Carleton and the visitor centre at Gateway Village.
    The Bridge is open 24 hours a day and takes approximately 12 minutes to cross. Tolls are collected only when leaving the Island.
    The Confederation is really something to see. I know I was amazed the first time I saw it. Driving over it is half the fun! But also, don't forget to stop in at Gateway Village. There's lots of information, shops, food and other things to see.
