Practical information for visitors

We make no bones about it: our aim is to get drivers OUT of their vehicles and INTO the landscape, chatting away with the locals. Because the more folk you meet along the way, the richer your visit will be.

As well as the twin CDs, the Cabot Trail Companion also features a road map, plus a bumper list of accommodations, shops and other local facilities, so you can plan your trip ahead of time ... or quickly and easily arrange a few extra nights once you're en route.

Cabot Trail CompanionI listened to the entire CD ... It’s truly excellent. Way beyond a highway companion. It’s a cultural, historical, geographical and natural history account of [...] all Cape Breton ... You missed nothing.

What it’s not...

The Cabot Trail Companion isn't a quick-fire list of all the things you're passing (and missing!) along the way. You don't have to adjust your driving speed to the CD tracks.

Instead, we examine in depth a selection of the most important places to see, often presented by the very people you're likely to meet.

The best aspect of the Cabot Trail Companion is that you arrive at the next location feeling you already know the place...

The double-CD Cabot Trail Companion is a new concept in audio guides, but you'll be right at home with its friendly, informative style.

Happy travels!
