Cape Enrage Lighthouse

New Brunswick

The 150-year-old clifftop lightstation, with its lighthouse, former lighthouse-keeper's house (now a restaurant) and a small gallery, provides dramatic views. The more adventurous can do on-site rappelling ($90 per person for two hours) and zip-lining activities ($45 per person for three runs).
