What else to do around Fiddlerslake


Cape Breton Island is ideal for all types of ‘getting wet’ leisure activities. Whether canoeing, kayaking or just a swim in the morning it is always a fun time.

The one who would like to have something more motorized can also switch to jet ski, motor boat or a small yacht.


This activity does not require a commentary. Buckle up your snowshoes and start trudging. For hours (if you like) thru the woods and paths where nobody has gone before.

You may only meet your neighbour on his snowmobile. That’s fun too…


Beautiful hiking trails can be reached easily. The ‘Lighthouse Trail’ in Louisbourg is a must, not to forget the breathtaking views and the true nature of the many trails at the Highlands National Park. Put your shoes on…

Archery 'The Barn'


Start archery on the right foot by training with a professional archery coach (NCCP).
‘The Barn’ is just around the corner (2min).
‘The Barn’ will provide all the equipment you need, but if you have a bow, you are welcome to bring it.


Golfer’s paradise Cape Breton. Several golf courses on Cape Breton Island are among the 100 best golf courses in the world. Cabot Links was the no. 1 in Canada in 2015(!) and Highland Links the # 7. Four golf courses (including ‘The Lakes’) can be reached from Mira Spirit by car within 30 minutes.

Detailed information can also be found at ‘Golf Cape Breton‘.

The eleven ski slopes and various cross-country skiing trails at ‘Ski Ben Eoin’ are just waiting to be explored with a snowboard, by ski or cross-country skiing. A special snowshoeing event are the full moon walks, over viewing the Bras d’Or Lake. And an ‘apres ski bar’ is on site too. An important aspect: no long waiting queues and waiting times at the lifts. On weekdays you have the slopes almost to yourself.

Tim Hortons

There is always time for a ‘double-double’ (double milk and sugar) going along with a cookie, muffin or bagel. You should always spare some extra time to visit this very unique Canadian Coffee House. After having visited a few stores and had a few coffees you’ll know why ‘Timmy’s’ overtook McDonald’s as Canada’s largest foodservice operator
