WEather

July in Maine is typically quite pleasant. Daytime temperatures usually peak around the high 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.

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.

Accommodations
  • Two nights at Harborside Hotel in Bar Harbor
  • Two nights glamping in Bar Harbor
