Cape Breton Island

Visit Cape Breton Island

Introduction

Cabot Trail is arguably the most scenic coastal drive in North America. You wouldn't want to forget your camera on this journey that encompasses Baddeck, Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the valleys of the Acadian forest.

Immerse yourself in the island's Gaelic heritage by taking part in a Celtic dance at summer céilidhs (pronounced kay-lees) in Baddeck. From here take a sailing trip around Bras d'Or Lake and explore more of the region.

Look around National Historic Sites to discover artifacts of inventor Alexander Graham Bell at his Canadian residence. Or learn more about the British and French struggle for control of Canada at the Fortress of Louisbourg.

Sydney is the island's historical capital named after the British Home Secretary. Enjoy walks to the harbour and feast on fresh seafood with lobster a specialty all year round. Or enjoy a trip to the Glenora Distillery to learn about the production of single-malt whiskey.
