Here, in the far corner of America, a sense of pureness lingers. You can sense it in the crisp salty air and taste it in the mouthwatering fresh seafood brought straight from the fishing boats. You’ll feel it watching waves crash over the rugged coastline or pedaling along a rural country road. From Camden's undeniable charm to the picturesque seascapes of Acadia, this is quintessential New England.

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.

Route notes

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.
