Itinerary

Day 1:

Day one of the bike tour we meet for introductions and bike fittings. In the late afternoon, we will jump into kayaks to explore the magnificent Camden Harbor. Overnight in a charming Inn in Camden.

Day 2:

The first day's ride will pass through the beautiful Rockport and Camden harbors and then make a loop exploring the lovely homes in the area and the beautiful surrounding countryside while biking on quiet seaside roads. We continue our ride inland and make a short climb to a magnificent view of the ocean and surrounding countryside.

Day 3:

You will catch the ferry and bike on Islesboro. This lovely, friendly island, 3 miles off Lincolnville Beach, has a terrain of woods, fields and a rural, rocky shoreline. You will see small roads winding along the shore, stately summer homes and peaceful villages with trim white houses. After a sumptuous beach picnic, you will catch the Quicksilver, a converted lobster boat, and cruise to the rockier Vinalhaven. This island is also known as "The Lobster Capital of the World". Historically Vinalhaven was the home of a major granite industry and it is dotted with secluded, small quarries, which make ideal swimming spots. You will bike across this magnificent island and you can stop along the way for a refreshing swim.

Day 4:

Today you will bike on two of Maine's beautiful and interesting islands. North Haven, originally the home of fishing, ship building and sheep farming, today lobster fishing and tourism are the main domestic industries. You will bike around the island and explore the small town of North Haven. Other highlights include the majestic view of the Camden Hills, a short hike up to Ames Knob and biking over pleasantly rolling hills to the stone beach at the end of Crabtree Point. To finish our visit to North Haven, you will have a picnic lunch on a secluded beach. After lunch, you will return to the Vinalhaven where we will bike the southern part of the island. You will end this memorable day with a traditional Maine "lobsta" boil on the dock in the harbor.

Day 5:

First thing in the morning, you will catch the ferry to Rockland on the mainland. Rockland has become an important cultural center with art galleries everywhere. There are opportunities to visit the Farnsworth Museum as well as the Puffin and Owls Head Transport Museums. You will then bike around the Owls Head Peninsula stopping at its famous lighthouse and continuing on down quiet roads to the quaint fishing villages of Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde. Along the way, you may wish to stop for lunch on the dock at Millers Lobster Pound where you can watch the lobster men bring in their catch.

Day 6:

We catch the mail boat to Monhegan Island. Mohegan is an art colony with many galleries. There is spectacular hiking through woodlands and along rocky cliffs with the sound of crashing waves along the shore. On the woodland part of the hike, you will see the "elf homes" created by local residents in little nooks and crannies along the way. We will wrap up with a wonderful, farewell dinner in Port Clyde.

Day 7:

We will bike through Tenants Harbor, South Thomaston, Rockland back to Camden where we will arrive around 12 a.m.
