Travel Itinerary for Cheticamp & Area

Outdoor activities and Acadian history are musts for your Chéticamp intinerary.

From wilderness expeditions and sandy beaches to lively kitchen parties and traditional music, not a day goes by without excitement or adventure on this part of the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

Start your day off right with the hearty Fisherman’s Breakfast at the Auberge Doucet Inn. Continue on to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park where you can join a guided nature tour or take to the hiking trails that wind through some of the oldest forests in the province. 

After a morning of discovery, cool down with a dip in the ocean at Petit Etang Beach. Then, embark on a whale watching tour with Seaside Whale and Nature Cruises. On your way for dinner, stop by Église St. Pierre - architectural splendor matched with enchanting ambiance and historical roots make it a must see. Then, dig into a true Acadian dish offered at many restaurants in the village.

Enjoy a relaxing evening horseback ride with experienced staff at Little Pond Stables, but as the sun sets, keep in mind that the kitchen parties are just beginning! So put on a pair of dancing shoes and stop by to enjoy some traditional Acadian Music, food and drinks for all ages.
