The Mira Shore, one of Cape Breton Island’s secret gems is but minutes away from the Port of Sydney, eastern North America’s deepest, natural harbor. As we leave the harbor by driving past World War II installations and the former mining towns of New Waterford and Glace Bay, we soon arrive at Cape Breton’s eastern coastline, locally known as the Mira Shore. There are rugged coal-bearing cliffs, delightful fishing villages, sparkling bays, cranberry bogs and sandy beaches all bordered by intimate boreal forest. Each outing will be unique but typical stops include such evocative locales such as Schooner Pond, Morien Bar, Mira Gut and Main a Dieu.

Your guide is a consummate naturalist, who is also well versed in local culture and history.

- Short walks away from the vehicle are sometimes on unpaved trails with occasional uneven ground. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.

- Groups traveling with a collapsible wheelchair can book this program if the passenger is able to transfer themselves in and out of a van. The itinerary will be modified to accommodate this request.
