From timeless fishing villages to rugged Acadia National Park
Time stands still in tiny fishing villages on remote islands, in the quiet coves of rocky islets, and in the ancient tall stands of pine and spruce forests. On a rejuvenating expedition along Maine’s wild and rugged coast, discover the world's first restored Atlantic puffin colony, windswept places that inspired writers and artists, and remote communities with no paved roads. Breathe fresh spruce-scented air on a forest hike, see lonely lighthouses atop granite cliffs, and meet friendly locals like the farmers whose vegetables, meats, and cheeses have been celebrated by national publications.
Visit artists in their galleries on Monhegan Island, and photograph the lighthouses and picturesque harbors of Penobscot Bay.
Look for Atlantic puffins in the restored seabird colony of Eastern Egg Rock, and search for whales feeding along the coast.
Savor a farm-to-table dinner at an organic farm on North Haven Island.
Enjoy a full day of discovering Acadia National Park’s secluded Schoodic Peninsula by kayak and on hikes.
