Cape Breton Island

Cape Breton IslamdNova Scotia is renowned worldwide for its unique animal and plant life. This is especially true of Cape Breton Island which was recently crowned as the 3rd most beautiful island in the world by the American magazine “Travel + Leisure”. This puts Cape Breton ahead of the famous Maldives’ Islands. This, among other features, has led to many Canadians referring to Cape Breton Island as “Canada’s Masterpiece”. The best way to fully enjoy Cape Breton’s wildlife and natural beauty is by hiking along the many trails or by driving along the numerous “Scenic Drives”. Intact nature can be found not only in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, or around the southern lakes, but just about wherever one might travel on the island.
