Acadia National Park boasts some of the most beautiful landscapes in the northeastern United States. Encompassing rocky ocean coast, dense wooded trails, and open mountain peaks, the park is home to unique wildlife and has no shortage of activities for intrepid explorers to enjoy. Join us as we hike, cruise, and paddle our way through Maine’s coastal crown jewel.
June in Maine is typically quite mild. Daytime temperatures usually peak around the mid 70s with nighttime lows dropping to the low 50s. It can be quite breezy and cool on the water so be prepared for chillier temperatures on days when we go out on boats. Rain can be expected but most days are either overcast and dry or sunny.
Good Trippers can be any age and everyone is welcome!
We get families, couples and friends, but most of our travelers come solo! We have guided trips for all abilities, just make sure to review the Intensity section for information about what to expect on your trip.
All public trips are 18+. If you’re traveling with kids, we’d be happy to make any itinerary private! Email email@example.com.
Intensity – Moderate
Hiking days will usually include about 5 total hours on the trail, covering anywhere from 5-8 miles on the day. The kayaking tour is appropriate for beginners and will include about 3 hours on the water. Conditions can make paddling more or less difficult but your guides will adjust the day to accommodate any water conditions. This trip is perfect for travelers who are comfortable being active for most of the day. Some hiking experience is recommended.
