TRIP DESCRIPTION

If you have ever wanted to see why Cape Breton Island has inspired musicians, artists, and inventors, spreading their good will around the world, this is a perfect way to do so without tackling the challenging terrain of the Cabot Trail. Starting with the charming Acadian Isle Madame on the south coast of Cape Breton, you will sea-kayak the waterways and islands between here and the entrance to Bras d’Or lakes at St. Peter’s Canal.

You will then ride your bicycle, following lake shores and valleys across Cape Breton Island to the west coast at Mabou, a quiet village that at first glance belies the abundance of musical talent that was bred and is frequently enjoyed here. An evening at The Red Shoe will give you some idea of the rich culture thriving in the surrounding hills. You will be able to enjoy one of our favourite rides around Lake Ainslie, and 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!
