Ciad Mille Failte! Pjila'si! Bienvenue! Welcome!

It is my pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to our Island on behalf of Destination Cape Breton Association. You have arrived in a very special place where history and culture will weave a golden thread through your experience and outdoor adventure will take your breath away.

Nowhere else in North America will you find thriving Gaelic, Acadian and Mi'kmaq communities. As you make your way around any of our five scenic trails and traverse the hills and valleys of Cape Breton, you'll understand why publications worldwide have heaped our Island with accolades.

Today the legacy of those that came before us lives on and is celebrated in each community through our spirited and charming people. Experience tradition as you travel this beautiful Island, where our living culture - song, dance, music and storytelling are preserved and very much a part of our daily life.

Prepare yourself for the majesty of the Cabot Trail. Pack a picnic for the splendor of sunsets over the Bras d'Or Lakes, a UNESCO Designated Biosphere. Photograph your way through a hike along the rugged coastline of the historic east coast. Golf on some of the best courses in the world. Enjoy culinary delights created by world class chefs. Participate in a celebration 300 years in the making at The Fortress of Louisbourg, marking its three centuries of existence on Cape Breton Island. On our western "Sunset Side of the Island", the warm waters are your perfect host for whale watching, sailing, kayaking and scuba diving.

You will discover a special kindness and spirit of hospitality that ensures while you may leave; your heart will stay until you return again. May your experience be unforgettable and have you planning your next visit long before this one ends.

Kind Regards
Mary Tulle, CEO
