Cape Breton Island, Cheticamp, Nova Scotia
Chéticamp is a busy fishing village in Cape Breton with a thriving Acadian culture. Visitors will often hear the lively sounds of Acadian being spoken. Music has always been a very important component of Acadian life in Chéticamp, reflecting their attachment to religion, language, culture, entertainment and history. During our visit our ears will not only be delighted with the sounds of traditional music, but we'll also have the opportunity to hike the Cabot Trail. Before departing, we'll sample some local Acadian cuisine, such as fricot, chaird or tchaude and have the chance to visit Glenora Distillery - North America's only single-malt whisky distillery.
