Plan Your Trip

Over the years, Cape Breton Island has acquired a variety of very distinguishing labels. From such powerful, statement-making slogans as “North America’s #1 Island Destination” and “Nova Scotia’s Masterpiece” to more down-to-earth, casual expressions such as “simply breathtaking.” Whatever you want to call our island, we’re proud to have Cape Breton part of the Atlantic Canadian experience. We now invite you to be part of it.

Whether it’s a weekend getaway with your family or friends or a much needed weeklong escape to the great outdoors, we’ve compiled a variety of Cape Breton information that will make your planning easy. Find your way to our end of the world, preferably via our famous Cabot Trail or other coastal scenic drives, and once you get here – our world is now yours to discover.
