Journey to the very heart of Cape Breton Island and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the famous Bras d'Or Lakes.

The first stop on your circuit is at the geographic center of Cape Breton Island, where you'll visit the Nova Scotia Highland Village -- a 50-acre living history museum overlooking the Bras d'Or Lakes. Take a chronological journey through 180 years of Cape Breton's Scottish architecture, hosted by costumed guides well versed in conversational Gaelic and local history.

Your next destination is the village of Baddeck, home of Alexander Graham Bell -- inventor of the telephone and, understandably, Cape Breton's most famous resident.

Make the most of some free time for shopping and sightseeing in the village before a brief stop at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Here you can view the world's most extensive collection of Bell artifacts.
