Downeast & Acadia Tours

Bustling towns, scenic harbors, picturesque bayscapes, delightful villages and spectacular mountains-to-the-sea views make Downeast hugely popular among cyclists. The region is home to the breathtaking Acadia National Park as well as numerous easily reached islands.

Highlights: beaches, swimming holes, hiking trails, lighthouses, ocean views, state/national park

From endless forests and blueberry barrens to the craggy coastline, these rides take you on the roads less traveled in beautiful Washington County, Maine, the easternmost county in the United States. In fact, the first rays of morning sun strike the continental United States at Quoddy Head Light, a stop on two of the loops. Washington County celebrates a diversity in its landscape that is greater than that found in any other county in Maine.
