Cape Breton Island

Voted One of the Worlds Most Beautiful Islands, Cape Breton Island is known for its dramatic natural beauty and Scottish heritage.

Cape Breton is also famous for its salmon fishing, world-class golf courses, glorious autumn foliage, and Glenora Distillery, Canada’s only single malt whisky distillery.

Drive the Cabot Trail to explore the rocky splendour of Cape Breton’s northern shore, ascending to the incredible plateaus of Cape Breton Highlands National Park, voted one of the most scenic drives in the world. Spot whales off Cape Breton’s rugged coastline, watch eagles soar and immerse yourself in Scottish dance and music at the annual Celtic Colours festival.

We often see eagles nests, a sea cave and a lighthouse and maybe it’s charming owners. There are interesting granite formations, along with an impressive amount of plant and animal diversity awaiting discovery.

A leisurely return paddle will confirm the ease, comfort and beauty of sea kayaking in Cape Breton Island.
