A scenic journey along Maine’s boundless coastline
With hundreds of miles of coastline begging to be explored, it’s like Maine was made for curious travellers. From flourishing cities to peaceful seaside towns and dramatic beaches, this six-day local-lead adventure takes it all in. And how could we forget about lobsters and blueberry cake? Take a tour of lively Portland, head offshore in search of whales in Boothbay, tuck into a traditional New England clambake on Cabbage Island and explore the rugged landscapes of Acadia National Park. Fresh air, fabulous food and unforgettable scenery will have you falling in love with Maine.
Kicking things off in lively Portland, let your local leader show you the city’s history and culture on a walking tour that takes in all the best bits.
Aside from welcoming locals, whales, dolphins, seals and puffins all call coastal Maine home – head out to meet them on a memorable boat trip in Boothbay.
It wouldn’t be a trip to New England without a clambake! Tuck into this traditional feast on Cabbage Island, trying lobster, fish chowder, blueberry cake and more.
Time the tide in Bar Harbor for a walk out to Bar Island before before seeing "the most beautiful lighthouse in the US" - Bass Harbor Head Light.
Watch the sunrise from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, the first place in the US the morning light touches.
Maine can get chilly, even in the summer. Make sure you bring layers and a rain jacket.
There are walking opportunities throughout this trip. We recommend you bring good quality walking shoes if you're keen to enjoy a hike - or two!
