Cape Breton Island is ranked as the #1 Island in North America by Travel + Leisure magazine and home to the Cabot Trail which was ranked in USA Today’s 10 Best Motorcycle Trips. You may want to check your brakes before heading to Cape Breton. The world-renown Cabot Trail, with its dramatic coastal views and highland scenery, can be rather steep. Not to mention you’ll want to stop a lot while on the island. In Nova Scotia, fresh and local isn’t a choice. It’s a way of life. We were built on our connection to the sea and our understanding of the land has allowed our rich culture to thrive. From award winning craft breweries, distilleries and wineries, to feasts made from the finest local ingredients – there’s plenty here to whet your appetite.
