Cape Breton Hike

From $1295.00

Starting with the exciting reconstructed fortress and reenacted ambience of Louisbourg on the wild east coast of Cape Breton, you will hike the rugged shoreline and while learning about early North American struggles between French and English. You will walk to a delightful waterfall outside Baddeck, where Bell chose to settle because of its simple natural beauty, and will visit the museum to learn about Bell’s astonishing discoveries. You will then follow the coast to Cape Breton Highlands National Park, to enjoy the best trails of this profoundly stirring area, where coastal hills meet the sea on both East and West coasts. Then it is on to Mabou, a quiet village that at first glance belies the abundance of musical talent enjoyed there. You can visit the only single malt distillery outside Scotland, before a fantastic hike on your last day, along the path cut into the side of the coastal hills at Sight Point. This is a full week of Cape Breton magic, but we guarantee you will leave wanting more!
