- Fascinating History
On this Acadia adventure we tackle some of the most exciting and challenging hikes that Acadia has to offer (if you’d prefer a more moderate tour, check out our Acadia Summits to Oceans Hiking Tour.) Each evening we return to our cozy, historic Bar Harbor hotel to relax and head out on the town for fine Maine dining. On our hikes we will earn stunning summit views of rocky ocean shores and lush northeast coastal flora. We will head out on the water for a sea kayaking adventure and a ferry to an iconic Acadia peninsula, checking out the wealth of local marine and avian life. We will escape to the quieter sides of Acadia toward the end of the tour to hike and explore more off-the-beaten-path areas.
