Coastal Maine is home to more charming towns and stunning vistas than anywhere in America and it’s ideal for pedal & paddle touring. The fishing ports & art enclaves, islands & inlets, clam shacks & lobster traps of central Maine are pure down-east, mostly unspoiled and awaiting you with open arms, splendid seas and an unpretentious hospitality.
Our multi-active tour of Maine takes you from the idyllic town of Camden, the “Jewel of the Coast,” up to Bar Harbor, the gateway to Acadia National Park, a destination that must be experienced to be believed, resonating with Victorian splendor reminiscent of bygone days. Along the way you’ll meet the locals who make Maine what it is today.
Explore scenic byways and coastal waters, well off the beaten path to savor local flavors, history and the world-famous artistic traditions of this proud state. Maine stands ready to welcome you and Grasshopper Adventures will show you the way, ensuring you’ll speak like a ‘Main-ah’ by tours’ end.
