We are looking for a 5 to 7 day walking tour of cape breton. We like to hike about 4-6 hours per day and like comfortable accomodation with great food. Any recommendations?

If you want "organized " walks, I can't help other than take a look at the North highlands tourism group.

As for hiking in general, there are several hikes inside the Highlands park , they range from 40 minutes to ones that are over-night ones. There are hikes outside the Park too, like to places like Pollet's Cove near Asby bay , what we call Cape Clear in Margaree; then there are many "backroads as well as roads that are used as wood roads ,ski doo trails etc on the top of the Highlands, You enter from the Cabot Trail at Hunter's Mountain or from Margaree Valley and can walk for days . Next is the Trans Canada trail ;there are also ad on trails like the rail bed Trail The canso causeway all along the coast to Inverness; Thi s is a great one .

A 7 day hikng tour in Cape Breton used to be a easy question to answer as there was one high quality operator in Nova Scotia that specialized in such tours, Scotts Walking Adventures. Unfortunately she isnt operating anymore - probably too many bargain hunters vice quality seekers. But there is another high quality tour business that is mainly a bike adventure business that has organized a 7 day Cape Breton walking excursion - they operate all over the world but are based in Nova Scotia. I know from personal experience that they employ only well trained interesting guides and if you want a expereince to remember you cant beat them. Check out Freewheeling Adventures at freewheeling.ca/adventures/NovaScotiaCapeBre… You can also do it on your own, but it wont be anything like a guided tour.
