The Cabot Trail

Rising from the sea and clinging to mountains, the Cabot Trail is a winding staircase that will take you from majestic ocean vistas to quiet fishing villages. Plan several days to experience the journey of a lifetime on one of the world’s most scenic drives.

Travel + Leisure magazine has called Cape Breton Island, home to the world-renown Cabot Trail, one of the world’s must-see islands. The natural beauty of the highlands provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities such as golfing, kayaking, hiking, cycling, and whale watching. And don't forget about motorcycling! The Cabot Trail was featured in USA Today's 10 Best Readers' Choice for Best Motorcycle Trip in 2014.

Hike and camp in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, play a round of golf at the famous Highlands Links, peruse artisan shops along the trail, or just drive and stare as you experience this 300 kilometre (186 mile) highway that offers spectacular coastal views, highland scenery and warm Celtic and Acadian hospitality.
