Start archery on the right foot by training with a professional archery coach (NCCP).
‘The Barn’ is just around the corner (15min).
‘The Barn’ will provide all the equipment you need, but if you have a bow, you are welcome to bring it.
Feel free to book the Archery Getaway Package which includes a 2-night stay at Mira Cottage, one private coaching lesson for 1 – 2 adults in our climatized indoor facility ‘The Barn’ (2 hours).
Beautiful hiking trails can be reached easily. The ‘Lighthouse Trail’ in Louisbourg is a must, not to forget the breathtaking views and the true nature of the many trails at the Highlands National Park. Put your shoes on…
Golfer’s paradise Cape Breton. Several golf courses on Cape Breton Island are among the 100 best golf courses in the world. Cabot Links was the no. 1 in Canada in 2015(!) and Highland Links the # 7. Four golf courses (including ‘The Lakes’) can be reached from Mira Spirit by car within 30 minutes.
Detailed information can also be found at ‘Golf Cape Breton‘.
Ski & cross country skiing
The eleven ski slopes and various cross-country skiing trails at ‘Ski Ben Eoin’ are just waiting to be explored with a snowboard, by ski or cross-country skiing. A special snowshoeing event are the full moon walks, over viewing the Bras d’Or Lake. And an ‘apres ski bar’ is on site too. An important aspect: no long waiting queues and waiting times at the lifts. On weekdays you have the slopes almost to yourself.
Cape Breton impresses with the Bras d’Or Lake. A lake with 1250km of coastline Canada’s largest in-land sea. One of the best saltwater lakes in the world.
Among sailors and boat friends it is popular because of its moderate southwest winds, rare instances of fog and hundreds of secluded coves and harbours to explore. The summer water temperatures are approx. 24-26° Celsius (~75° Fahrenheit).
The ambitious sailor finds unique coastal landscapes, rough and rocky with many fjords.
This activity does not require a commentary. Buckle up your snowshoes and start trudging. For hours (if you like) thru the woods and paths where nobody has gone before.
You may only meet your neighbour on his snowmobile. That’s fun too…
There is always time for a ‘double-double’ (double milk and sugar) going along with a cookie, muffin or bagel. You should always spare some extra time to visit this very unique Canadian Coffee House. After having visited a few stores and had a few coffees you’ll know why ‘Timmy’s’ overtook McDonald’s as Canada’s largest food service operator.
