“Nothing less than beautiful”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Coming from Ontario, The Cabot Trail was incredibly worth it and beyond our already high expectations. Spend the day to experience it counter clockwise so youll be on the right side for every of the dozens of lookouts. Each lookout and turn of a corner brings a new surprise as you either hug the edge of a mountain into a deep valley, or border the Atlantic, or see both the highlands and waters meet together.

“Lovely journey”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

A lovely ride along the coast line of Cape Breton, breath-taking and relaxing....
Stops along the way in several communities make for a break on this ride.
Many spots for lovely pics to be taken to memorize the occasion.

“Serpentine drive oceanside.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Great ride on a motorcycle or automobile. Sweeping views of the ocean with small villages peppered through Cape Breton National Park. Many pull offs on this road allow you to get out for wonderful photo opps.

“Lots of colors”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Went and did the Cabot Trail in the fall and wasn't disappointed. The rustic scenery and fall colors were incredible. Never saw so many eagles in one day. Definitely will go again.

“Cabot Trail Spectacular”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Visiting and driving the spectacular Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Nova Scotia during late fall was 'jaw dropping'. Not only did we get to experience the magnificent winding coastal scenery and views from the mountain tops, but to absorb the brilliant colours of fall at the same time...we were spoilt. On an earlier trip to Cape Breton we were also able to spend an educational and fun half day living back in the year 1744 at Louisburg Fortress. Well worth the time.
