    Spectacular scenery is the highlight today as you travel along the Cabot Trail. We will spend the day exploring much of this famed road in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, which winds through charming communities and breathtaking scenery. A visit to Cape Breton is sure to thrill you. Its only rival in beauty is the seaside French and Scottish settlements nestled below the mountains resembling the highlands of Scotland. We'll enjoy a relaxing picnic lunch along the way as we experience the scenic nooks and crannies of this remarkable landscape. (Breakfast and box lunch)
