Destination Cape Smokey

Experience the beauty of Cape Smokey in all 4 seasons from Atlantic Canada’s first gondola! 

Downhill skiing in winter, watercraft rentals in summer, and stunning 360° colours in fall.

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

Can’t decide between salt or freshwater?

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

Make a Splash!

Warm Up to Winter

Ingonish is skiers and snowshoer’s winter wonderland.

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!

We spent 6 glorious days in Ingonish!! Great weather, lupine spectacular, food at Bean Barn, Coastal, Keltic lodge, Brookside, and Andrew’s Pizza amazing. We hiked , we sat in the sunshine. We rode the gondola (like tourists). Of course, a ride to Cheticamp and Flora’s. Rusty Anchor and Neil’s harbor too. NO moose this year! But lots of sand and sun. Impressive improvement on Smoky !! We hope every small business does well this summer. Til next year…..

Any family celebrations happening in Ingonish? Or fireworks tonight

Maybe next we could clean the rocks off the iconic Ingonish Beach?

We filled a large garbage bag and a small bag. There was no one on the beach except the guys from the county.
