Acadia National Park

Bike, hike, sea kayak and sail in one of the most scenic places on earth

Tour Overview

Maine Bicycle Tour & Active Vacation

The diverse scenery and natural beauty of the Maine coast will transfix you at every turn. Join us for an Acadia sojourn that will leave this timeless wonder etched forever in your mind. Acadia National Park is one of the most scenic places on earth for those who appreciate the beauty of our natural world.

Ride a remote coastal route so close to the sea that you might feel the spray of the ocean as you ride. You will visit a seemingly forgotten fishing village, a secret haunt of professional photographers, where you can enjoy a fresh lobster roll on the pier when you hop off your bike for lunch.

Enjoy exceptional bicycling routes, hikes to incredible vistas, a guided sea kayak tour with a Registered Maine Guide, and a sunset sail on a classic Maine Windjammer. Experience the best of Acadia National Park during this extraordinary Maine bike tour and we will also share our secret hideaways and off the beaten path places.

Automobile-free carriage roads wind through spruce forest and past the pristine lakes of Maine’s most beautiful and unique islands. Lighthouses, and lobsters boats, the timeless icons of the Maine coast, are ever visible along our cycling routes.

Unwind in an ocean view room with your own private porch just a stone’s throw from the water. This peaceful and relaxing location is just a block from shops and restaurants in the town of Bar Harbor. Sojourn will open the doors for you to immerse yourself in the magic and majesty of one of the most beautiful places in the world.
