We are hoping to visit Cape Breton next summer from the Uk and would welcome any useful advice. I believe the nearest airport that we can fly into from London is Halifax. What options are there for getting from there to Cape Breton other than driving? Is there a rail link and, if so, does anyone know their website address please? (It doesn't seem to be covered by VIARAIL). Alternatively, can we fly between the two and, if so, which airline covers that route? Also, if we were coming for two weeks, would we be best advised to spend most of that time on Cape Breton (perhaps with a few days in Halifax) or should we try and take in Prince Edward Island, or somewhere else, as well? Finally, would it be best to hire a car on CB for most of our stay or is there sufficient public transport and/or tours to get around everywhere? We are in our early 60s and enjoy a mixture of exploring and relaxing - CB looks the ideal place to do both. Any advice or info would be much appreciated.
