Cabot Trail Bike

From $1795.00

The Cabot Trail is one of the world’s greatest rides; one that all touring cyclists should have on their “must-ride” list! The beautiful coastline meets the breathtaking highlands in ways that make you appreciate both to the fullest, while savouring the magnificence of the paved trail at the speed of your bicycle. The landscape and the people will demonstrate to you why Nova Scotia’s name means New Scotland.

On the tour, you will have opportunities to explore the lush valley of the Margaree River, rich with salmon, to watch whales close up from a zodiac, to play golf on the famous Highlands Links, and on some days to expand your rides onto beautiful wooded trails, all while staying at inns famous for their individuality and charm. Many of our guests find a highlight of the tour to be a ride through beech woods to salmon pools, where salmon sometimes leap on their way upstream, and where you can swim in deep pools below clear waterfalls. The cycling, although manageable by most cyclists (and van-supported for the rest!) includes some challenging (and rewarding) sections.

Combining such awe-inspiring scenery, out-of–the-way charm, unusual inns, exceptional cuisine, and particularly friendly locals makes this loop ride an exquisite experience you simply must have!
