Cabot Trail - Pleasant Bay Look off | Destination Cape Breton

Getting The Most Out Of Your Cape Breton Vacation

  • The Cabot Trail

    Make sure you allow for a full day on the Cabot Trail!

    The first step to planning your Cabot Trail journey is one simple decision: clockwise, or counter-clockwise? If anyone in your party is sensitive to heights, you might consider travelling clockwise, putting some space between your vehicle and the ocean. 

    For a view of the sun setting over the ocean, we would recommend traveling counter-clockwise. 

  • Tips

    Be sure to bring a map! Cellular service is unreliable in some parts of the trail; to avoid losing your way, make sure you have your own map. Ask our front desk staff, or pick one up at a Visitor Information Center. 

    Take advantage of gas stations when you see them – there is often some distance between stations.

  • Wildlife

    Be respectful of the wildlife while you’re here. There’s a good chance you’ll see a moose on the trail; please keep in mind that it’s best to enjoy them from a distance. 

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We’ll be happy to assist in any way we can.
