Renowned for its natural, cultural and historic attractions, Cape Breton Island comfortably draws in at least half a million visitors annually. Located on the east coast of Canada, this region experiences relatively mild weather given its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The world-famous Cabot Trail is a 106-kilometre-long road that wanders through the Island; treating visitors to rugged coastlines, ocean views, winding roads and panoramic landscapes of rolling hills. And if that’s not enough, Cape Breton Island also offers fresh seafood delicacies as well as unique artwork handmade by local artisans.
