ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
During a spectacular outdoor adventure in Maine’s Acadia National Park, experience seaside cliffs, ocean air and breathtaking views atop the highest peak along the Atlantic Coast. Bike carriage roads through by the sea, past the pines, and between the cliffs as you learn more about the region’s unique formation and local diversity. Enjoy the spectacular views and some of the most ideal sea kayaking areas in the world while relaxing in the picturesque “Down East” town of Bar Harbor.


Highlights

• Pedal between stunning cliffs and the rocky coasts along the famed Somes Sound, the U.S.’ only Atlantic fjord.
• Discover superior sea kayaking among the rocky Porcupine Islands of Frenchman Bay.
• Learn more about the region’s geology, wildlife, marine environment and history during on-site and pedaling lectures.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
