Our Dolce Tempo activities allow you to leisurely explore local hidden gems and to get away from the crowds, experiencing the essence of your location on your own terms and at your own pace. Easier than our other trips, but still wonderfully active, itinerary options typically include 2-4 hours of walking, e-biking or other excursions per day. On e-bike routes, our custom electric-assist bikes allow you to pedal effortlessly. Your trip is fully supported with dedicated Trip Leaders, vans, meticulously selected routes and downloadable GPS files available for use on your own device.
The walking terrain we encounter on this trip ranges from gently rolling to hilly, with some steep climbs. Walking trails can be uneven, with roots, mud, rocks and other obstacles. Please note that unpredictable mountain weather can make walking conditions more challenging. The biking terrain on the Maine coast consists of constant rises and valleys, which are made easy to tackle with your e-bike.
