Enjoy the outdoors with tranquil walks around picturesque mountains, scenic beaches, and the famed landscape of the highlands at Cape Breton Highlands National Park. You can go for a drive or a hike on one of many trails passing through the park, featuring ocean and mountain views from above. Observe the steep cliffs and river canyons winding through the forests near the Atlantic Ocean, with waterfalls and tundra-like plateaus also forming part of the scenery. You can also test your skills at an 18-hole golf course marked as the best public course in Canada. Wildlife in the area includes bears, birds, and whales, which can often be seen from the park’s coastal trails. Wear appropriate clothing, as the weather often gets cold and wet.
