Baddeck

Historic Sites · Waterfalls · Kayaking & Canoeing
For most visitors on holiday in Baddeck, the town represents the beginning and the end of the world-famous Cabot Trail, a scenic roadway looping around the northern tip of Cape Breton Island. Thanks to its location on the popular drive, this settlement of just 1,000 residents offers an impressive selection of lodgings, shops, and restaurants, catering to motorists and cyclists beginning or finishing their Cabot Trail journey. Water lovers take a trip to Baddeck for a chance to sail on Bras d'Or Lake, an inland saltwater sea that attracts varied wildlife like eagles and puffins. Our Canada tour itinerary tool combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
