Overview

Note: Due to COVID-19, the visitor experience at Parks Canada places will be different than it has been in the past. The health and safety of visitors, employees and all Canadians is of the utmost importance.

Parks Canada is asking visitors to comply with recommendations from Nova Scotia public health authorities by wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, and by respecting recommended social distancing measures at all times.

Parks Canada’s network of protected places is large and diverse. Visitor access, services, and even opening dates may vary across Cape Breton Island and Canso depending on local circumstances. Please visit pc.gc.ca/ns and follow Parks Canada’s social media channels for information and updates on the status of all Parks Canada places.

Immerse yourself in the splendour of the sunset as the ocean glistens below. A walk through the boreal forest reveals this panoramic view, often graced by bald eagles, whales and moose. Here, the mountains truly meet the sea.

This guided hike takes place on the famous Skyline Trail and begins 2 hours before sunset. 7.5 km (4.7 m) return. The main trail is suitable for most fitness levels. The Skyline Trail is a 10 minute drive from Cheticamp Campground.

Call the Parks Canada Visitor Information Centres at (902) 224-2306 (Chéticamp) or (902) 285-2535 (Ingonish) to book your tour. Tours are offered daily.
