Cabot Trail

The Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island is one of the most beautiful scenic roads in North America.

 During our journey the weather in Nova Scotia has changed. Instead of warm sun, we experience cold stormy rain. At the sandy beaches in Long Point Provincial park the wind sweeps us the sand over the skin. The weather nevertheless matched our ideas of Cape Breton.

Cabot Trail Nova Scotia

A very well-developed scenic road, named after the explorer Giovanni Caboto, leads around the northern part of Cape Breton Island. From distinctive viewpoints you have an excellent view across the large bays and rugged coastline. Inspired by the broad area of the country, Canada lays out its streets rarely as winding roads, so they are wide and slightly curved resulting in significant inclines and declines. The Cabot Trail is probably not quite harmless at snowfall.
