Cape Breton Island is located on the north-eastern tip of Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada. Joined to the mainland by a rock-filled causeway, Cape Breton Island has proven itself to be one of the top scenic and touring destinations in the world.
Visitors may explore the Island’s regions and trails, alive with Gaelic, Aboriginal and Acadian cultures, awe-inspiring land and seascapes, exciting outdoor adventure and rich history. Roadways hug the coastline and the world’s largest inland sea, the Bras d’Or Lake.
Plan your visit so that you get to experience the best of our regions – we have written about all those things that make the trails so special in these pages, but there are so many more incredible and “off-road” experiences to be discovered as you venture around the Island.
