Southeast Cape Breton

 We begin our journey on the Grand River by the village of the same name from there we make our  along one of the most remote coastlines in Nova Scotia. Underlain by dark volcanic bedrock, the loose sand and cobble left by ancient glaciers have been distributed along the shores forming impressive spits along the mouths of rivers and bays. This has created a maze of inland waterways where we can meander among parallel to the coast if the ocean is too rough.


Highlights of our journey include a large grey seal colony, spectacular drumlin cliffs - the highest in the province, the idyllic St. Esprit Island, the abandoned light station on Guyon Island, and the deserted fishing village of Gull Cove.


Dates: July 20-27
