Tucked on the northernmost tip of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton is the jewel of the Canada’s East Coast. The Cabot Trail runs right through the awe-inspiring scenery and is among the most scenic drives of Canada.

With its rocky coast, glacial valleys, barren headlands, souring mountains, lush forests and sweeping plateaus the island offers a wonderful diversity of landscapes. The Cabot Trail, departing from Baddeck, loops around the island and takes in the unparalleled beauty of the spectacular nature and colorful fishing villages dotted on the coastline. The road offers many opportunities to explore Cape Breton Highlands National Park by foot. Some trails take you up the plateau where you will discover 360-degree views of the landscape. Especially on top of the plateau it’s likely to spot moose, eagles or even whales swimming in the bay.
