Maine

A week in paradise

Here, paradise is Bar Harbor – originally known as Eden – located on Mount Desert Island. It is the focal point of your trip. You will enjoy strolling through its historical quadrangle, savouring its delicious seafood and visiting nearby Acadia Park. The latter’s attractions include Cadillac Mountain (466 m) - the first place to see sunrise in the United States. Along the way, you will pass through Bangor – the location of Stephen King’s house, the harbour of Belfast - named one of the coolest small towns in America by USA Today. It all adds up to one heavenly week of biking!
