Dig into the History of Cape Breton

Join Blackwood Tours in Cape Breton for a scenic journey around Baddeck! The surrounding area tour of Sydney involves touring the scenic Bras d’Or Lakes to Christmas Island, Iona, Little Narrows Ferry, and Baddeck. Before Iona, we stop at the Christmas Island post office, where some tourists enjoy sending postcards from Christmas Island to friends and loved ones. 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 tour the museum of the inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, and view the first telephone he created along with many other items. 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. From Baddeck, we stop at the Gaelic College to view the various tartans and maybe experience bagpipe music. We’ll have you back in time for your next destination after this fun, historical tour of Baddeck and the surrounding areas.
