Trip Itinerary:

Pick Up/Drop Off: Halifax, NS (YHZ).

Day 1: Transfer from the Halifax airport, warm up ride and welcome reception. Leaders will collect you in Halifax on the first morning of our Cabot Trail bicycle tour. From here we will transfer to Baddeck, a lovely village on the lake. We enjoy a short warm-up ride before a welcome reception to begin our week.

- Cycling Options: 14 or 24 miles
- Lodging: First of 2 Nights at The Inverary Resort.

Day 2: The Isle of Iona. This morning we’ll set sail for the Isle of Iona out in the middle of the wide Bras D’Or lake. From the landing we ride around the island on un-trafficked roads with a stop at the Highland Village, a recreation of a 19th century pioneer settlement.

- Cycling Options: 43 or 75 miles
- Lodging: Final Night at The Inverary Resort.

Day 3: Lake Ainslie to Glenora. Today we leave Baddeck and ride along the water until we turn inland over rolling hills to the beautiful Margaree Valley. We travel on through more quite back roads and around the clear waters of Lake Ainslie to our home for the night, the Glenora Distillery. Here we can tour the distillery to see exactly how Uisge Beath or Water of Life is made from the pure, clear brook that bubbles outside our rooms that night. After dinner there is always a fiddler in the lounge playing traditional jigs and reels.

- Cycling Options: 40, 56, or 68 miles
- Lodging: Glenora Inn.

Day 4: Along the Sea to Cheticamp. On to Cheticamp and Acadian fishing village perched on the shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. After some rolling hills through wooded countryside we emerge to ride close by the sea with stunning vistas on all sides. Stop and visit the spectacular beach and harbor in the old coal town of Inverness before we continue biking to Cape Breton.

- Cycling Options: 40 to 68 miles
- Lodging: Lauries’ Motor Inn.

Day 5: Over the Highlands.

This is the big one. two challenging climbs of French and North Mountains as we traverse the highlands across the island to Aspy Bay. Take a break from biking to hike the Skyline Trail, a stunning ridge that abounds with moose and vistas that sweep away to the Magdalene Islands far out at sea. Tonight we can have a bonfire on the beach on the shores of Aspy Bay where mountains plunge down into the Atlantic Ocean.

- Cycling Options: 46 miles
- Lodging: Markland Coastal Resort.

Day 6: Sea and Mountains.

We’ll ride next to the ocean as we continue our Cabot Trail bicycle tour, pedaling to our final destination, the beautiful Keltic Lodge on Middle Head, Ingonish Beach. We’ll start the day with a whale watching excursion off the northern most tip of Nova Scotia and after a quick lunch hit the road for some of the most beautiful scenery and sweet riding you’ll find …anywhere!

- Cycling Options: 46 to 62 miles
- Lodging: The Keltic Lodge.

Day 7: Climbing Cape Smokey.

The conclusion of our Cape Breton bicycle tour kicks off with a dawn ride to the peak of Cape Smokey, high above the sea. After checking out the look off, we’ll button up our jerseys for the 10KM descent back to Ingonish. Then after a bountiful breakfast at the Lodge, we’ll load up, say our farewells and head to Sydney airport. You’ll take home sweet memories of biking Cape Breton that you will recount fondly for years to come. We conclude with a transfer back to Halifax.
