Destination guide

Cape Breton - If the Cape fits, wear it

For a true taste of island life, you can't beat Cape Breton. Connected to the mainland of Nova Scotia by a mile-long stone causeway, at its heart is Bras d'Or, one of the world's largest saltwater lakes. Get your Nova Scotian adventure off to a great start by booking a centrally located Cape Breton vacation rental. Go whale-watching on the Gulf of St Lawrence, hike along the iconic Cabot Trail, and don't miss a night of local folk music in Sydney, a town famous for its Big Fiddle, a statue of a giant violin on the waterfront.

Things to do

Ring my Bell, in the summer home of Alexander Graham Bell

There's more to Cape Breton than spectacular views and nature walks. Head to Baddeck and visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Set in the grounds of Beinn Bhreagh, the Scottish inventor's summer home, it's a fascinating display of artifacts, inventions and photographs. Book a Cape Breton vacation rental in Sydney and visit the North Sydney Heritage Museum, which delves into the island's long history. Putter around the local craft and produce stalls in the Big Fiddle Market, or pick up a lobster or some local artisan cheese in the popular Cape Breton Farmers' Market.


Get Cape, wear Cape, fly on your Cape Breton adventure

A vacation in Cape Breton is all about the great outdoors, even if it's largely seen from a car window. Widely considered as one of the world's best drives, the Cabot Trail is a scenic driving route around the island, and the best way to see Cape Breton. From the beautiful cliff top vistas, watch as bald eagles soar overhead, while whales breach in the navy sweep of the Gulf of St Lawrence. If you want to stretch your legs, take a sunset hike along the Skyline Trail at the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where the mountains meet the sea.


Summer's are bright and balmy in Breton - No Cape needed

Cape Breton is largely a fair-weather kind of place. With long warm summers and a brisk fall and spring, it's the bitter winters that mostly keep the crowds away. The most popular season to visit is summer, where you'll find sunny, dry days and temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. However, rain is not uncommon and an umbrella could be a saving grace. Fall is another special time to visit the island. The fall foliage turns Cape Breton into a blaze of color, but the mercury tends to drop rapidly and without notice, so pack wisely.

Islands in the Gulf Stream – Cape Breton
