Included / Not included

Day 1: A Taste of Acadia

We’ll meet in Bangor and shuttle you one hour to the charming seaside village of Bar Harbor, where your guides will fit you to your rental bike and get you oriented and ready for you first ride. We’ll head out for a short spin on Acadia’s famed Carriage Road trail system before stopping at the visitor center to enjoy a short orientation video for the park. After lunch we’ll hike up Acadia Mountain enjoying panoramic views of Somes Sound.
Tonight we’ll enjoy dinner at one of Bar Harbor’s best restaurants, where you’ll have the chance to sample the freshest seafood! Meals included: Lunch & Dinner Biking: 11 miles, Hiking: 2.5 miles

Day 2: Biking Acadia Carriage Roads

Following breakfast, we’ll pedal our way back to Acadia to explore more of the Carriage Roads. A gift of philanthropist, John D. Rockefeller Jr., the 45 miles of rustic carriage roads weave around the mountains and valleys of Acadia, providing car-free trails on which to explore the heart of Mount Desert Island. We’ll stop for lunch at the Jordan Pond house where you’ll have the chance to try one of their famous popovers. In the afternoon, you have the option to hike to Bar Island, a unique trail that is only accessible during low tide. Tonight we will dine together at one of the many great restaurants in the area.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Distance: 26 miles

Day 3: Kayaking the Western Side of Acadia

Today we’ll enjoy a serene and scenic paddle on the less traveled western side of Mount Desert Island. Where we’ll paddle depends on the weather conditions. We could do an out-and-back or a one-way point-to- point paddle, but the goal is to have the wind at our backs for a more enjoyable trip. The Westside has less development and less boat traffic which translates to better wildlife sightings. After our paddle we’ll head back to Bar Harbor where you’ll have some free time. This evening another delicious dinner awaits.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Distance: 5 miles

Day 4: Bar Harbor to Southwest Harbor

Today’s ride follows the coastline of Mt Desert Island, dipping in and out around small inlets and the fjord-like Somes Sound. We’ll pass through several small harbor towns and fishing villages offering the chance to explore boutique shops, art galleries and eateries. You may like to wander the meandering paths through the Asticou Azalea Garden or enjoy a lobster roll or steaming bowl of “chowdah” in Southwest Harbor before arriving at the
much photographed Bass Harbor Light. From here you may cycle or shuttle back to Bar Harbor where dinner is on your own tonight. Meals Included: Breakfast & Lunch. Distance: 25 or 53 miles

Day 5: Cadillac Mountain & Park Loop Road

You’ll begin the final day with the option to enjoy sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain, at 1,532-feet it’s the highest point along the Atlantic coast and known for being the first place to see the sunrise in the United States. The spectacular display of pink and orange hues reflecting off the island-speckled bay is well worth the early morning trek. We will then set out on the scenic Park Loop Road which offers stunning vistas overlooking Frenchman’s Bay and access to many famous Acadia sites along the way.
Meals included: Breakfast & Dinner. Distance: 21 miles

DAY 6: Depart for Bangor

After breakfast we shuttle you back to Bangor.
