7-day adventure by seakayak, spending nights in cozy inns, with one final day of spectacular hiking.
If you have ever wanted to see why Cape Breton Island has inspired musicians, artists, and inventors, this is a perfect way to do so. From Isle Madame on the south coast of Cape Breton, you will paddle the waterways and islands frequented by native and Acadian paddlers of the past, between here and the entrance to Bras d’Or lakes at St. Peter’s Canal. You will paddle around the islands of the Malagawatch First Nation – an idyllic archipelago with abundant shorelines along which you can glide in your quest for the company of great blue herons, moose, and eagles. Mabou will be your base for the final adventures. It is a quiet village that at first glance belies the abundance of musical talent enjoyed here. An evening at The Red Shoe will give you some idea of the rich culture thriving in the surrounding hills. You can visit the first single malt distillery outside Scotland, enjoy fantastic paddles in the harbour; along the coastal hills to solitary beaches and an amazing lighthouse, and hike a dizzying trail overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
This is a full week of Cape Breton experience, but we guarantee you will leave wanting more!
