Cycling Cheticamp Island

You will often find yourself alone along the ocean and through fun woodland trails on Cheticamp Island. The island offers a lot of diversity for biking and is hopefully going to grow into an area full of bicycle traffic - the good kind of traffic!

White Point, Cape Breton

White Point is definitely one of our favourite places on the island. It truly is a gem - it’s calm and quiet, and the sound of crashing ocean makes it the perfect location for a relaxing stroll through nature. Pack a picnic and eat alfresco (outside), absorbing all the wonderful natural sights and sounds. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

Sea kayaking, Cape Breton

Experiencing Cape Breton's coastline from the water is a totally unique perspective. You might even find yourself among a pod of whales or catching that perfect sunset out on the ocean.

'Meat Cove to Lowlands Cove', Cape Breton

With a true edge of the world atmosphere, Meat Cove, Cape Breton never disappoints those who are looking for a place to get away from it all. There are some fantastic hiking opportunities here and a great campground with a beautiful beach just below.

Fishing Cove, Cape Breton Highlands National Park

If you’re looking to hike where there’s the sound of rushing water, lush ferns and mosses, with a finale of the ocean, you’re in luck with the Fishing Cove hiking trail. It is around 6km one way. The trail blew us away with how pristine nature is out here where it’s left to be undisturbed.

Buff hats

We both love our microfiber Buff hats. They are great for all the outdoor activities we pursue year around and we couldn’t live without them!

California

Hiking “Half dome” on the first day that it opened and experiencing Yosemite was truly incredible. It is just an amazing park and we will definitely come back this way. It was very humbling to walk among the giant Sequoia trees. California was a spur of the moment decision for us and ended up being the best decision we made.

Organic Farming in Margaree

Fresh, local produce from Peter and his crew at 'Front Porch Farms'. You can find him at the farmers markets in Baddeck and Cheticamp and if you are looking to work on a farm while traveling, this may just be the place for you!

Iceland

Possibly the most dramatic landscape we have witnessed so far. Yes, it's unfortunately starting to become really busy with tourism, but if you head to the east, north or to the westfjiords, you will definitely find solitude. Get there soon, before it becomes even busier!
