Nova Scotia: Cape Breton Island
It’s always helpful having an experienced guide to show you the ropes when uncovering a new destination. But sometimes it’s even better when you have the freedom to take things at your own pace. Nova Scotia is a land of wild beauty that’s definitely worth taking your time. This seven-day, self-guided tour organized by Country Walkers allows ramblers to do just that. Spend the week exploring Cape Breton Highlands National Park while following the Skyline trail which climbs 1,000 feet above sea level. Afternoons will be spent swimming in the waters of Bras d’Or Lake and appreciating the sweeping views from atop Burnt Mountain. Keep your eyes peeled through the 350-year-old sugar maples for rare songbird sightings and foraging moose. There’s even time to add in some kayaking, whale watching, and rejuvenating spa treatments after spending hours on the trail.
