Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival Bar Harbour
Today you will drive through Maine, but may feel like you’re in Canada with the rolling mountains, overgrown with coniferous forests and reflecting lakes. From the White Mountains or western Massachusetts, you’ll drive to the town of Bar Harbor, located on Desert Island, where you will also find most of Acadia National Park. Maine is known for its lobsters, and you can eat them on almost every street corner at simple wooden sheds, meaning you pay a lot less for the delicacy in this part of the world. In the afternoon, visit the Acadia National Park Visitor Centre, so you can make a plan to make the most of the park the following day.
Acadia National Park
Get up early this morning and be one of the first people in the USA to see the sunrise, due to Acadia’s north-easterly location. The National Park extends over several islands of which Desert Island is the largest. Drive along the park roads and you will see one beautiful views over rugged rocks, cliffs and hidden coves. Most tourists head to the major attraction of Cadillac Mountain when arriving in the National Park, so head to the Ocean Path first which is equally as beautiful and a lot calmer in the mornings. Cadillac Mountain is still as enjoyable in the afternoon and will be a lot quieter.
Departure from Bar Harbour
If you’re not in a rush this morning to leave Acadia’s rugged coastline, book a morning whale watching tour before you leave. From Acadia you travel on to Boston or to The White Mountains, where you ride a cogwheel train to the top of the highest mountain, with views over four states and even Canada.
