Cape Breton Island is a Canadian hidden gem if there ever was one. The island has dramatic seaside cliffs that rival Midcoast Maine, California’s Big Sur, and even stretches of Hawaii. Martens, moose, lynx, and snowshoe hares frolic the land, unstirred by our presence. A rising, homegrown culinary scene continues to blossom along the Atlantic Ocean’s sapphire blue shores. And, of course, the biodiverse terrain and countless natural water sources provide adventurers with endless exploration within steps of Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort, including trails leading to beaches, waterfalls, and even hidden lakes. It’s no wonder that Cape Breton Island has evolved into one of the premier wellness retreats in Canada.
Unwind, Relax, and Rejuvenate: Wellness Retreats in Canada
Twelve months a year, couples, groups, and even solo travellers trek deep into Nova Scotia. These lucky adventurers come here to unwind, rejuvenate, and restore balance amid lapping waves, swaying forestry, and melodic whispers from Mother Nature. To become one of the best wellness retreats in Canada, one must offer a wide variety of relaxing, liberating amenities, including yoga, massages, and ample forest bathing. And several times a year, Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort holds a wellness retreat getaway that provides weary travellers nourishment, restoration, and meditation. The next event takes place in mid-February (check our website for dates and times). Typically, each two-day meditation retreat includes yoga, outdoor hot tub relaxation, adventure-based exercise (such as snowshoeing or hiking), a cozy bonfire with friends new and old, healthy meals, and, of course, a unique lodging experience.
