On this walking tour along Maine’s wild coastline, you’ll find far more than lobster and lighthouses...but plenty of those, too.
Local lobsterwoman Stefanie Alley has been fishing Maine’s frigid waters for decades, and this morning she’s invited your group onto her boat to chat. Learning about the lobstering life is a perfect prelude to today’s walking tour of this remote island outpost, where colorful buoys hung from clapboard houses reflect Acadia’s enduring fishing traditions. Of course, local insight is a watchword of your journey, with seasoned wilderness guides who have explored the region for decades. Meanwhile, your taste buds begin anticipating tonight’s seafood dinner in Bar Harbor. Here on your hiking tour in Acadia, the East Coast’s oldest national park, the settled life and wild nature coexist as they have for centuries—in beautifully landscaped carriage roads and rocky coastal paths, quaint village shops, and boundless vistas of the island-dotted Atlantic.
