MAINE: A Windjamming & Culinary Adventure
Go solo or with friends – you pick the dates
The adventure starts in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine. Bar Harbor is the gateway to Acadia National Park and the largest town on Mount Desert Island. It’s known for its natural beauty, rich history, port scene and, of course, fresh Maine lobster. Explore Acadia National Park: take in the views of Maine’s islands from the summit of Cadillac Mountain and hike on Ocean Path with its stunning rocky coastline. Then, on to Rockland to embark on a four-day sail on the historic Schooner Ladona. Originally launched in 1922 as a personal yacht, it is now one in the fleet of Maine’s historic windjammers (restored in 2015). Relax, enjoy the spectacular scenery as it breezes by, visit fishing villages, spot wildlife and chat with fellow travelers. Hike onshore and have the best lobster you’ve likely ever eaten at a lobster bake – will become a memory for life! The cuisine reflects the pure aesthetic of Maine with fresh, local ingredients carefully prepared by Ladona’s Chef Anna. What she can do in a small galley is remarkable! After the sailing, visit the charming town of Camden and tour the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Finally, follow a local guide in Portland’s Old Port District to learn about its rich history, the seafood industry and culinary scene. Portland has been consistently been named one of America’s foodiest cities. While in Portland, visit three of Portland’s iconic lighthouses. This 11-day tour to Maine is the epic Maine summer vacation!
