An island on Canada's east coast, renowned for its Celtic heritage, scenic Cabot Trail, fishing communities, and Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

Tips from the community

Nothing quite like the soft summer charm of Nova Scotia; endless green in all directions, clear air, and dewy warmth. Breton Island is easily one of Canada's most popular islands for summer travel- full of excitement and fun but just off the beaten path enough for some remote opportunities. With small fishing villages, endless nature, and windswept horizons; Breton Island feels like a world all its own.

If you are considering heading up north for summer, we're here to let you know that you don't need to freeze on icy tundra for a break from the heat. A simple dip in freshwater, a sip of iced tea on a windy shoreline, or hiking up for a breathtaking look at nature are all perfectly acceptable ways of cooling off while making the most of summertime. Let's check out some of the best getaways for an idyllic summer vacation.
