Things to Do along the Cabot Trail

Gampo Abbey

The Gampo Abbey (a Buddhist Monastery) in Pleasant Bay was founded in 1984, as a place where individuals could explore monastic life by taking vows on a temporary or life-long basis. Located on 230 acres of woodland overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the abbey offers solitude and earthly splendor which are ideal for contemplation, meditation and study.
