Travel Itinerary for Baddeck & Area

A great itinerary for exploring Baddeck on the Cabot Trail.

Take some time in the morning to stroll along the beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes as you watch them come alive with the sailboats and yachts that speckle their surface. Head down to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and take a walk through the life of this famous historian. Stop by the many gift shops including the Blue Heron Gift Shop and The Water’s Edge Gallery and discover a wide variety of Cape Breton and Maritime goods on your way for lunch. 

Enjoy a freshly prepared meal at one of the many diners or cafés and take in the gorgeous view from the deck. Once you’ve tantalized your senses with the beautiful view of the lake and the heat of the sun, head down for a ride on the Schooner Amoeba with Amoeba Sailing Charters and take in the area from a new perspective. Don’t forget to take time to enjoy the local trails and wildlife – join the Walking the Wildside Nature Tours and see the best Cape Breton has to offer! 

Head to McCurdy’s Restaurant at the Silver Dart Lodge and enjoy the fresh meals and seafood with a touch from Scotland as you’re entertained with nightly performances! Let the vision of the town and the Bras d’Or Lakes be etched in your mind as you sip a refreshing drink. 

After supper there’s fun for the whole family at Rocking Horse Ranch where you enjoy the sunset as you ride the powerful, yet docile horses that we’ve come to love and respect.
