« I have traveled around the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes, the Alps and the Highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all. » – Alexander Graham Bell

Get to Halifax by coach, plane or train, and then you will get to stay in this historic coastal city, where the people are known to be very welcoming. You will visit the Halifax Citadel, a National Historic Site, as well as Pier 21, the immigration museum, or take a city tour to admire Nova Scotia’s charming atmosphere. Don’t worry, you will come back to Halifax on the last day of your trip.

On the next day, you will cycle approximately 65 kilometers between Tatamagouche and Pictou then you will go by coach to Cape Breton Island in the small town of Baddeck, a picturesque community which serves as an entry and exit passage to the Cabot Trail. There, y the National Historic Site of Alexander Graham-Bell, a 20th century museum where the inventor had his summer house. You will start cycling on the next day.

The road between Baddeck and Chéticamp is pretty flat with a vertical drop of about 200 meters, offering the possibility to admire the inside of Cape Breton Island, including its diversified wildlife and flora. Among others, eagles and moose are very present. Take time to observe the impressive colors that autumn brings to the area.

Chéticamp is a one-of-a-kind village. True acadian atmosphere reigns in this fisherman town. You will find museums and multiple traditional acadian restaurants. Your day will finish on a wonderful sunset, typical of Cape Breton Island.

The wonderful road between Chéticamp and Cape North will leave you breathless, not only for the intensity of the ride but also for the amazing views you will get of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and on naturally carved canyons. Once inside the National Park of the Hautes-Terres-du-Cap-Breton, you will see cliffs on one side and the Saint Lawrence River on the other one. We invite you to take time to observe Mother Nature at the many lookouts you will find.

Your arrival to Cape North offers you a good night sleep before leaving for Ingonish.

At Ingonish, you will have wonderful whale sightings, sandy beaches and some of the best food yet! Once energized, you will complete the last part of the trip to reach Baddeck from Ingonish.

A wonderful experience that any cyclist will recommend.
