5 Places to View Fall Colours on Cape Breton Island
We are so happy to live in a world where October exists, aren’t you? Cape Breton has many beautiful spots to sit back and enjoy the fall colours but these 5 places are by far our favourite.
1. An Autumn Drive on the Cabot Trail
To drive the Cabot Trail during the autumn is an experience like no other. With each turn in the road you will see the picturesque combination of cliff sides littered with a vibrant kaleidoscope of fall colours and the rocky coastline that carries the fallen leaves out to sea.
2. A 360° Panoramic View on Tenerife Mountain
Get lost in the pure beauty and bliss of Tenerife Mountain at the peak of Cape Breton Island. This 360° view will leave you speechless. Combine that with our freshly painted autumn leaves and you will feel teleported to another time and place. This is an ultimate fall must-do.
3. Two Wheels on the Open Road
There is nothing better than the feeling of being on the open road with your motorcycle. Where there is nowhere to be and all day to get there. Be sure to add the scenic route to your journey so you can take in the sights and sounds as nature transforms from summer to fall.
4. Fishing on the Margaree River
Tie a fly and cast your hook as you fish for wild Atlantic salmon in the Margaree River! Known for fly fishing, this river is home to several different species of fish but has become quite popular in recent years for its Atlantic salmon. While the salmon season officially kicked off June 1st, you have until the end of October to find the perfect spot nestled among the trees.
5. High in the Sky on a Helicopter Tour
Who doesn’t want to want to have a bird’s eye view of the ever changing leaves this time of year? Both Breton Air and Celtic Air offer chartered helicopter tours featuring breathtaking sights as you fly over the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, our world famous Cabot Trail, and our rugged coast line.
