Cabot Trail, NS, Canada
Driving the Cabot Trail is Nova Scotia’s most famous recreational activity, taking you along winding roads, by serene lakes, beneath soaring eagles and on to cliff-top vistas that are sure to make your jaw drop.
Along the way, artists’ workshops dot the southeastern flank of the trail like Easter eggs, from Englishtown to Saint Ann’s Bay. Seize this treasure: drop in to a studio or two to meet an interesting mishmash of characters. You’ll find pottery, leather, glass and pewter workers, painters and sculptors, and discover living remnants of Mi’kmaw and Acadian culture. The most breathtaking scenery is found on the island’s northwestern shore as the trail slopes down to Pleasant Bay and Chéticamp. Visit Canada. Epic Canada Route © Monika Newbound
