Wanna know a secret?

Of the hundreds of thousands of tourists that come to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island each year, only a small number of visitors discover the Top of the Island. Located at the Northern most section of the Cabot Trail, The Top of the Island is a rugged and Breath-taking place that is one of the last undeveloped, authentic travel destinations on the east coast of North America.

The northern location of the Top of the Island region, results in visitors being central to activities and outdoor attractions located on both the East, and Western sides of the Island, which makes the region an ideal location for vacationers. The Top of the Island is a one-stop destination for guided eco-friendly, family friendly, and adventure based activities. If you have two, three, four, or more days to spend: then enjoy the natural, Top of the Island specific activities, while remaining close to everything Cape Breton, Nova Scotia has to offer.

While at the Top of the Island whether you hike, bike, kayak, drive, whether you camp, enjoy a bed and breakfast, a quiet cottage, or an efficient motel, you will have the rare experience of being alone and surrounded by crisp clean air, an endless ocean of whales, and luscious green Highlands rising over unpopulated, open beaches.
