What a beautiful lake! We stayed in Iona and saw beautiful sunsets over this amazing estuary. You can take a sailing cruise on the lake from Baddeck harbour. It is a UNESCO bio reserve. We saw seals, and bald eagles while sailing this lake!

This is an incredible lake and yes, the ride is long and the views and activities along it are worth the trip to see. Next time, we'd want to stay longer to enjoy all its beauty.

Mountains meet the sea to form a lovely experience. Accommodations and good restaurants are plentiful. Lots to see and do. Heartily recommended.

Stayed in Baddeck and had lovely views of this lake. Went on a fantastic boat trip, on the Amoeba, and the capatain fed a pair of bald eagles!

A long drive around but worth every minute of the portions you choose to drive. Little towns along the way, watch the water sports or participate.
