I was thrilled, refreshed, and rewarded for participating in this Maine adventure! The kayaking was special, biking and hiking fun, wonderful leaders and participants, fabulous weather and scenery, good food, and great accommodations. One of my best trips ever!

always wanted to check out Maine, this program offered the chance. It was organized and I thought for the amount of things they scheduled and the people we met it was a fantastic week

Acadia National Park- A beautiful place, with a grand history. We were fortunate enough to spend 5 days in Bar Harbor, ME and the Park. We Kayaked on the harbor, saw eagles and porpoises, lunched on an island and discovered sea glass. Biked and hiked in Acadia, strenuous but fulfilling and rewarding, a certain esprit de corps developed upon accomplishments completed. Paired with the history of the area and the unusual way Acadia became a National Park, it was a most rewarding, physical and intellectual exercise.

I absolutely loved the multi sport program. There was something totally different to look forward to from one day to the next! I look forward to another multi sport program!

This was a fantastic trip. The program delivered exactly what the description promised. Our program leaders, Bill and Glen, were funny, knowledgeable, and all around enjoyable to spend the week with. The variety of activities and the weather, even the rainy bus day, made this trip one of the best we have taken with Road Scholar.

This multi-sport program was great! We enjoyed all the activities, even our rainy day bus ride around the island. Leaders were personable and speakers were knowledgeable. We appreciated the flexibility of the group when things deviated from the schedule.

This was an interesting trip with beautiful scenery and a variety of activities. The leadership was excellent with lots of fun. Multi-sport programing was changed to meet weather conditions. It was moderately challenging, but anyone in good physical condition could enjoy things a little out of their comfort zone.

The program requires activities, kayaking, mountain hiking on granite ladders, and hill biking that would be most enjoyable if the participant had experience in these activities before attending.

A well lead, well organized program that provides a variety of activities. The experience levels of the folks in our group were broad, but the activities were designed so as to be within reach of the novice and to present a challenge to the experienced. The program, as advertised, does require that you be in decent physical condition. On occasion you will need to peddle hard uphill, dig deep with your paddle, and clamber up hill over rocks. But you will find a no more magnificent setting to become one with.

This program had a great variety of activities and was interesting and informative. It was very enjoyable and I'd highly recommend it!

This was a great trip. It was my first experience with Road Scholar, and I'm looking forward to more. The hiking, biking, and sea kayaking were wonderful ways to see the park. The guides were great and worked with all of the participants' different levels of activity to make sure everyone had a good time.

We just completed our first Road Scholar adventure at Acadia National Park. It was the multi sport hiking, biking, and sea kayaking adventure. This was the first one ever offered in July and it could not have been a more enjoyable experience. Even with fog every day, Coastal Kayaking Tours of Bar Harbor did a fantastic job in providing an educational, fun, and energetic advernute. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

For the multisport program some might get stretched, needs to be open and flexible to actively participate in each, even when one does not exactly fancy each activity due to likes and dislikes, physical ability, etc.
