Snow shoeing in Northern Cape Breton

Snow shoeing at the top of the island allows easy on-snow travel through strikingly beautiful snow-covered landscapes. On guided tours one can one day explore wind sculpted drifts in the mountains and gaze down at the drift ice-covered Atlantic, and on a second day, move quietly through sheltered valleys deep in drifts, experiencing a quiet broken only by the sound of one’s breathing and of the blood coursing through one’s veins.

For shorter outings, the North Highlands Nordic ski area offers groomed snow shoe trails and snow shoe rentals by the hour.

For outdoor enthusiasts seeking a experience that combines winter beauty, wildlife sightings and gentle exercise in uncrowded splendor, it’s difficult to beat snow shoeing at the top of Cape Breton Island.

We offer a wonderful winter vacation experience with cross country skiing and snowshoeing on the scenic majesty of Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail.

The North Highlands Nordic Ski Club was founded in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic cross country skiers who shared a love of winter and of the splendid scenery in the Northeast Highlands Area of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

The club is proud to have hosted a number of major national and regional ski races including the 1987 Canada Winter Games, 1989 Canadian Junior Nationals, and the 1986, 1987, 1994 and 1998 Atlantic Championships and numerous Loppets and Provincial Championships.
