Dig into the History of Cape Breton

Join Blackwood Tours at the Port of Sydney, Cape Breton for a scenic journey around Baddeck, Iona, and the Highland Village, Nova Scotia! The surrounding area tour of Baddeck involves touring the scenic Bras d’Or Lakes to Christmas Island, Iona, Little Narrows Ferry, and Baddeck. As we travel along the Bras d’Or Lakes, we visit the Nova Scotia Highland Village of Iona, which depicts the early life and culture of the Scottish settlers who came here from the Barra region of Scotland.

From Iona, we travel along the Bras d’Or lakes and then take a short ferry ride at Little Narrow’s ferry as we proceed into the scenic village of Baddeck. In Baddeck, you will visit the museum of the inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, and view the first telephone he created along with many other items. This picturesque tour of Baddeck also features a lovely waterfront to take a walk and numerous gift shops to visit.

Usually, we have lunch in Baddeck (if needed) at a restaurant specializing in seafood and other traditional favorites.  We’ll have you back in time for your next destination after this fun, historical tour of Baddeck and the surrounding areas.
