“A great summer drive”
Reviewed 22 January 2017 via mobile

Long scenic stretches of the local area. Passes through forest and coast. If you're in the area it's a great little drive with many interesting local shops and eateries

“one of the most spectacular itineraries anywhere !”
Reviewed 16 January 2017

For more than 4 decades I am a "summer settler" of Cape Breton Island and cannot count how many times I have shared this magnificent itinerary with friends from around the world. There are so many "lookout points", short side trips to see water falls, that no matter what the season, nature is endlessly variable and no two trips are alike.
Its unspoiled natural beauty is timeless.

“Beautiful scenic drive”
Reviewed 16 January 2017

We stayed in Baddeck and did the whole drive in one day, including quite a few stops and 2 walks - skyline Walk and Middle Head Walk. Very enjoyable and didn't feel rushed.

Reviewed 8 January 2017

Amazing ride with beautiful sights. We went in July but were told the best time to go is in the fall because of the beautiful colours.
