The Cape Breton Island Hoppers Volkssport Club, in partnership
with Celtic Colours International Festival, is pleased to present
“Celtic Colours Walks”, a series of guided walks during the festival
through many of Cape Breton’s most beautiful hiking trails and towns.
Who: We are a group of people from Cape Breton Regional Municipality
who enjoy the outdoors. We recognize that walking is a simple but
effective form of exercise that enables us to discover the beauties of
our island while increasing our personal health.
Why: One of the mottoes of the CVF is “Fitness, Fun, and Friendship.”
That just about says it all. We walk to improve our fitness; we do it
because it’s fun, and we meet new friends along the way. Most
importantly, volksmarching is non-competitive.
