About CBBA

Our team is made up of two Nova Scotian adventure seekers who want to show the world what Cape Breton Island has to offer.

With endless terrain to explore on Cape Breton Island, it can be difficult to access all that the island has to offer without proper guides, gear, and experience. Cape Breton Backcountry Adventures provides experienced guides, local knowledge, and world-class gear which make every adventure possible.
