Discover Cabot Trail Tours Cape Breton and you will experience a trip of a life time!

Upon leaving the Sydney metropolitan area where the cruise ships come into the Sydney Nova Scotia harbour and the home of the GIANT FIDDLE, we travel into the peaceful Cape Breton countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of city traffic.

Along the way, we cross the little Bras d’ Or, where we see many small pleasure boats on the glistening lake. At Kelly’s Mountain, we stop at two stunning lookouts–the Bras d’ Or and Saint Ann’s Bay.

Cabot Trail Tours Cape Breton

Cabot Trail Tours Cape Breton pass through sparsely populated communities where the residents make a living from the sea as fishermen or in the forest as loggers and pulp-cutters.

Cabot Trail Tours then travel through communities with names such as South Gut Saint Ann’s, North Gut Saint Ann’s, North River Bridge, Tarbotvale, Breton Cove, Skir Dhu, French River, and Wreck Cove, named for the tremendous amount of ships that ran aground in the area.

Explore the magnificent Cape Smokey (it is very, very steep, but the scenery is unsurpassed) before arriving in the Ingonish area, home to the upscale Keltic Lodge at Middlehead and Highland Links Golf Course, which has been ranked many times over as the number one golf course in Canada.
