As a whole country, Canada is not exactly lacking scenic views and things to try your hand at. But could Baddeck be the best of them all? Stretching along the shorelines of Bras d’Or Lakes, Baddeck has found the optimum balance between a hotspot for energetic tourists and a quaint community showcasing the epitome of glorious Nova Scotian living.

North River Kayak Day Tours

Baddeck has the situational advantage of being located on perhaps Canada’s prettiest shore. And luckily for us, North River Kayak Day Tours offer the perfect chance to make the best of nature’s statements. They offer a range of tours, but perhaps none is more striking than the Full Day version. Your kayak will take you round caves, eagles’ nests, lighthouses, beaches and waterfalls, covering about 7.5 miles. It’s breathtaking! Staff treat you like friends and even provide homemade lunches. Of course, food isn’t the absolute highlight– but still, we’re forever hungry people.

Watch out for – Munroe Point. We won’t spoil it for you but it’s probably the most special spot.

Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site

Canada is a country with a diverse position in history. Want proof? Look no further than the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, in, you guessed it – Baddeck! It breaks the myth that Bell, who spent much of his life in Nova Scotia, only invented the telephone (although that in itself is pretty impressive!), further teaching about him being an aviation pioneer as well as the rest of his notable resume. With beautiful grounds including lake views, the location from which you’ll come away brimming with newfound knowledge is definitely prettier than the classroom.

Watch out for – The interactive examples, including film clips
