NEW Visual Storytelling

This itinerary is infinitely customizable and will be tailored to suit your personal interests and schedule!

Established in 1633 as a fishing village, Portland became New England’s largest port. With its narrow cobblestone streets, it’s one of America’s most vibrant small towns. (Listen to music pour onto the water.) Into the woods, and cross the White Mountains to Vermont. Hundreds of bubbling streams and rivers, enhanced by the delight of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

Explore the wilds of Maine on your way to the coast, and stop at small roadside stands. When the trees fall back, you’re in Booth Bay. The coastal capital of America, indulge in sunsets on a schooner and fine dining, overlooking the ocean. Imagine white, blue, and calico lobsters. From here, Acadia calls you. The natural beauty of the highest headlands along the Atlantic coast also has a rich cultural heritage. There are still 45 miles of carriage roads. Take a walk.

Let us customize this for you!
