Day 2 – Cape Breton Island (Chéticamp)

Thursday, June 23

Scenic Cape Breton Island (above).

We begin our motorcoach tour on a morning drive to the northeast toward Cape Breton Island. We begin with an encounter with the First Nation people of Nova Scotia at the Mi’kmaq heritage center. We'll learn about their history, legends and present day life. Look out for the really big Indian.

We continue to Cape Breton Island. We'll traverse inspiring mountain and coastal scenery en route to Chéticamp. We'll spend two nights in this French-speaking Acadian fishing village. The Cape Bretoners are renowned for celebrating with traditional Celtic and Acadian music and dance.

Cape Breton Island lies northeast of mainland Nova Scotia.

Group dinner tonight, overnight at  Laurie’s Inn in Chéticamp. St. Peter's church dominates the town's harbor area.
