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.

Tour lasts 20 minutes.

We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Nova Scotia/Eastern Canada. Thank you so much for organising it for us, everything was perfect, the accommodations were superb and everyone was warm, friendly and very helpful. The tour/drive you put together for us was brilliant, we saw so many lovely places. We walked in the forest, went whale watching, sailed on a tall-masted ship and saw bald eagles and have now become really interested in the history of the region. It really was a holiday of a lifetime.
