This is a “must visit” year-round mountain playground for all.

Level Up!

Ocean Tides + Good Vibes

Choose between the saltwater waves of North Bay, Broad Cove and Black Brook beaches or enjoy a freshwater dip at Warren Lake

Head on over to Ingonish Beach and Freshwater Lake and get the best of both worlds.

After a long day enjoying the outdoors, head inside and cozy up in a cabin or treat yourself to a trip to the Keltic Lodge Spa.

You earned it.

Ready, set, snow!

Cape Smokey presents a marquee musical event this summer. Smokey Sessions Songwriters’ Circle: Gordie Sampson & Jimmy Rankin, Dave Sampson and Breagh Isabel. The first of the three concerts in the Smokey Sessions series, on Friday, July 29, is shaping up to be the biggest concert in Ingonish history.
Songs will shine with this all-Cape Breton lineup of iconic songwriters. Gordie Sampson and Jimmy Rankin will headline the show, joined by Breagh Isabel and Dave Sampson representing the next generation of Cape Breton song-writing powerhouses for the ultimate Cape Breton Songwriters Circle.
The opening act will be rock singer-songwriter, Carmen Townsend and the night will close with an after-party jam featuring a trio performance by the Brian Cathcart Trio - three members of the well-known local band Pretty Archie.
The concert is outdoors, rain or shine. The show starts at 7pm. Be sure to come early because the ticket will also get you a ride on the gondola to take in the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Highlands before heading down for a night of Cape Breton music that will be one for the books!
Gates open at 6pm; Gondola running 10am - 6pm. There will be a return bus service from Sydney to Ingonish which can be purchased with Concert Tickets. Tickets go on sale June 24, 2022 on Cape Smokey’s website (capesmokey.ca) and presale for Cape Smokey Members on Thursday, June 23.
