The Highlands Hostel is the Cabot Trail’s only four season outdoor adventure base camp. Nicely nested between the mighty Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the Atlantic ocean, you can enjoy any of the 32 hikes, within an hour of the hostel, with the first being right out the back door. Located in the Village of Cape North, the “Winter capital of Cape Breton”, at the very top of the Cabot Trail.

Just some of the extras…. Ski Cape Smokey, snowshoe at North Highlands Nordic. Enjoy random fiddlers and local musicians who are known to stop by for jam sessions. Spontaneous overnight RV adventures, bonfires and cool day trips, all complement your stay. Large groups are welcome.

We’ll provide the cozy base camp. You bring what you need to explore the Cape Breton Highlands.
