We are a little family living at the edge of the world in Northern Cape Breton. We are avid sea kayakers, hikers and bikers, not to mention cross country ski and snow shoers. Real water, rocks and trees kinda people.

We live just one community north, running a little kayak and cycling company. We are there for you any time. We also offer self check-in and a great 'what to do booklet', so there is no need to meet as well :)
