Rising from the sea and clinging to mountains, the 298-kilometer-long Cabot Trail is a winding mix of roadway, paths, stairs, and stunning beauty that takes you from unreal ocean vistas to quaint fishing villages.
Things to Do
Not just another pretty place. Here, you’ll find a lifetime of adventure packed on our 175-kilometer-long island. Iconic topography gives way to a living history, where each cove and inlet reveals welcoming communities, distinct cultures, stunning wilderness, and more of the story.
Celtic Heart of North America
Step into a land that flings you into tradition and sends you reeling with every dance. Discover a place that pulls on your heartstrings with one hand and deftly plucks a fiddle with the other.
Discover one of Canada’s premier musical events. Throughout nine stunning fall days, catch international and local Celtic talent on stages across the Island.
Music and The Arts
How do we capture the essence of our Island? In low steady drum beats and flying fiddle reels. In soulful performances in three mother tongues.
