• Cabot Trail Highlands N.P.

Nova Scotia | Cape Breton Highlands N.P.

An absolute “must” is a visit to Cape Breton Highlland National Park.

Cape Breton Highland National Park is located in the north of the island.

About 2 hours’ drive from VIPI Lodge is one of the most beautiful and spectacular national parks in Canada.

Visit deep canyons, steep coasts, dense forests, clear salmon rivers. A still intact nature guarantees unique impressions.

The Cabot Trail, which runs through the entire park, is rightly described as the most beautiful coastal road in North America.

In the park itself there are hiking trails of various levels of difficulty, from wheelchair-accessible to more challenging trails with up to 450 meters of altitude difference, everything is represented.

On the hiking tours we offer, elk are (almost) always seen.

In the park there are also black bears, foxes and coyotes. A total of 40 different mammals live in and around the Highlands.
