Silversea Luxury Cruises À BADDECK

BADDECK
BADDECK

You might think you are in Canada when you arrive on the shores of Baddeck, and indeed, the clapboard houses that face the Bras d’Or lake seem more New England than anything else. But scratch beneath the surface of Baddeck and you’ll find a distinctly Scottish flair to this Canadian idyll. The rolling highlands and moors that surround the pretty coastal city of Baddeck are not just the only connection that the town has to Scotland. View more

As one of Nova Scotia’s main towns, the “new Scotland” air is rife – think steep mountains, rocky inlets and dense forests, not to mention erratic weather and a great love of famed Scottish inventor Alexander Graham Bell, who lived here in the 19th century. St Ann’s Gaelic College keeps much of the heritage alive with Gaelic lessons, Scottish country dancing classes and kilt making. The restaurants, with their healthy balance of haggis and locally caught seafood, makes up for the rest. Baddeck is of course the starting (or ending) point for the Cabbot Trail, a 298 km trail that weaves through the Cape Breton National Park. Named after navigator John Cabot who first spied the area on a trip to Cape Breton Island in 1497, the trail is noted for its astonishing natural beauty. Not only are hikers rewarded with exceptional valley and coastal views, but around 40 species of animals call the Park home. These include the at risk Canada lynx, as well as moose, coyote and snowshoe hare. Harbour seals and pilot whales can be seen playing in the chilly Atlantic waters below.
