About this activity

The headlands and cliffs of Cape Breton Highland tower over the rich, natural heritage that is all around. Home to the famous Cabot Trail, the land is blessed with spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and a human history that stretches back to the last Ice Age. The park offers many accessible treasures and experiences remarkable in their diversity, beauty, and wonder.

Make sure to bring your hiking shoes as there's 26 scenic trails to explore, frost vaste forest walks to coastal hikes. You can set up a picnic in a cover, and experience the local culture in the fishing villages all around the parks edges. 

There's sandy beaches, freshwater swimming, ocean kayaking and lots more! There's ever humpback whales breaching off shore so make sure to take a camera and take some photos! 

If you wanted to stay for a bit longer, then why not camp overnight under the starry skies. There's also plenty of interpretation programs, tours and sightseeing adventures for the whole family to get involved in. 

Activity location


The Cabot Trail, one of North America's most scenic travelways, loops around northern Cape Breton and runs for nearly 300 kilometres. Approximately one-third (106 km) of the Cabot Trail is located within the park's boundaries.
