Cabot Trail – Cape Breton Island draws visitors to northeastern Nova Scotia with sweeping views from the Cabot Trail, an 185-mile drive that hugs rugged coasts and loops through forested highlands.
Moose habitat – The Cabot Trail runs through Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The park and surrounding areas are home to a dense moose population.
Western Cape Breton – The 110-mile-long (175 km) island is forested and hilly. The western side of Cape Breton is far less populated than the eastern side, which is home to the island's industrial center.
Outdoor pursuits – Kayaking, hiking, whale watching, sailing and more attract outdoor enthusiasts to the island. A number of outfitters offer multiday sea kayaking excursions.
