Bar Harbor Maine
United States of America
Get to know Bar Harbor with a wander along Shore Path taking the looping stroll out along the bay and spotting the Porcupine Islands emerging from the Atlantic’s waves. But why would you just look at those cresting waves when you can kayak between them or sail with colossal humpback whales throwing their weight around? Bar Harbor is all about getting tactile with the amazing nature on your doorstep and whether it’s biking rock climbing or sailing there’s an activity for every inclination here. The 27 miles of Park Loop Road will be the guiding path for your explorations of Acadia National Park leading you to crumbling oceanside cliﬀs evergreen mountains and perched lighthouses. Hike to your heart’s content visiting sites like the explosive Thunder Hole where the Atlantic rages smashes and booms against rocks. You can also see the multi-coloured beaks of puffins flashing in the sun. Afterwards refuel with an unforgettable New England–style lobster roll as you toast the day’s exploits and adventures with ice-cold Maine craft beers.
