Coastal Meadows

This challenging and rewarding tour begins and ends in Cape North.   The route follows old roads and trails constructed by early highlands settlers.  We walk over a forested ridge and descend towards the ocean. While walking along the ocean, we visit two coves originally used as summer residence by the highlands Scots during their summer fishing excursions.  There are whale, seal, moose and eagle sighting opportunities, and conversations relating to the history and traditions of the early settlers.…all while surrounded by the spectacular coastline beauty.

Cost per Person $145 plus tax

northern lighthouse hike

Northern Lighthouse

 Join our all day guided hike to the former site of Cape Breton's Northern most lighthouse.  Visit the foundations and here the stories of the people who lived in this majestic wilderness.  Visit the lighthouse ruins, hear about local shipwrecks and the fate of their crews.

 It offers a near-level hour hike before a half-hour, 1,200 ft. steep single-track descent arriving at sea level in a kilometers-long ocean-side pasture.  After exploring the pasture the group takes a lunch break near the site of the northernmost light in Nova Scotia, while watching sea birds (and often whales) from shore.   Up until 2010 this was a fully-operating lighthouse.  Now dismantled, a solar-powered strobe stil guides mariners from this location.  After lunch the tour continues back along the coastal pasture  to the remains of a shipwreck.  Our return route takes us back up the mountain.   Total hiking time is about five to six hours.  This tour is only for fit individuals as it involves steep, on-trail climbing, and rough terrain

Half Day Guided Hikes

family hiking trail

David's Trail

This gentle half day hike starts on top of the north mountain range.  We hike out across the top, over fairly level terrain.  The forest is unique, with heavy moose browsed sections and highland grasslands.  The trail leads to a bare windswept ridge, jutting out 1200 ft above the North Atlantic.   The ridge offers a stunning view of the sea, exposed to all the eastern skyline.   Ideal for families with a sense of adventure, this hiking experience offers an insight into what moose country actually is.

Coastal Stroll

Perfect for families and larger groups, this hike is one of the gentlest coastal trails in the region.  Starting in a small local fishing village and stretching out over an exposed coastal meadow, this trail offers a wonderful vista of the highlands and the sea.  We will explore the local fisheries and a few of the many shipwreck stories from the area.  This trail offers excellent eagle viewing opportunities, as well as other seabirds and seals.

Sugarloaf

Up and up we climb on this exciting hike.  Not far from John's Cabot Landing is Sugarloaf Mountain.  We take you on a steady climb up the arm of the mountain, come to two separate views of the highlands.  Looking north west you peer into a hidden valley, completely lost in the wilds.  To the southeast you look over a series of harbours and small fishing communities.  It's a great work out, with a hard climb, but a fairly smooth terrain.

Climb to Blueberries

This tour, only available with blueberries from late July to late August, follows a steep walking trail to wind swept plateau at the northern tip of the island.  The drive to this location is one prettiest on the east coast.  At the top, vast expanses of blueberry barren greet hikers, and we spend our time enjoying these fresh, tasty treats. The trail is quite challenging, with tough footing conditions, but the view is breathtaking, and the wildness of the spot is quite rare. You get a panoramic view; covering wild highland plateau, stunning glacial carved valley's and ocean vistas. We launch this tour for a minimum of two persons, and family and group rates are available.

Price $95 per person, plus tax
