Maine Tour; Ask someone about Maine and they’ll likely tell you what the state is famous for: its lobsters and its scenery. Well, the lobster population has declined recently, but the jagged, rocky coastline and low, rolling mountains are still wonderful to behold, any time of year. First, this tour will take us to the charming town of Bethel in western Maine. Next we’ll venture into the untamed interior, before heading to the famous coast. Then we’ll explore the capital, Augusta, and the largest city, Portland. Join us in search of the best adventures to be found in Maine! Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

Tips

  • Sometimes booking a room or activities can be difficult during high season - late June until Labor Day in early September. We recommend making reservations at least a month in advance if you are traveling during this time. The same applies to the shoulder season, when visitors come in search of fall colors or winter skiing.
  • The town of Bethel is close to the White Mountain ski resorts and wilderness areas, has an 18-hole golf course, and available outdoor activities. Only a mile out of town is 'Maine Mineralogy Expeditions,' for tours of actual mine excavations. The partner business is 'Bethel Outdoor Adventure and Campground.' Here you can find canoe, kayak and tube rentals for use on the Androscoggin River.
  • Mount Katahdin is located in Baxter State Park, in Piscataquis County near the town of Millinocket. The Park is about 26 miles (42 km) west of Interstate 95. The hike up the tallest peak in Maine is described by Park literature as 'strenuous,' but can be done round-trip in a day by fit climbers who set out early. Mount Katahdin is both the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, which extends to Springer Mountain, Georgia, and the soon-to-be-completed southern terminus of the new International Appalachian Trail, which will run to Belle Isle, Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • Maine is a very popular tourist destination, but it also experiences long and cold winters, and consequently, the great temporary influx of visitors occurs during the warmer months. Many of these seasonal visitors establish an alternate secondary residence in Maine during the warmer months and then depart for their primary residence in the off-season. These are the 'summer people' of Maine lore.
  • Interstate 95 runs diagonally through Maine, connected to the easterly route of I-295. In addition, U.S. Route 1 starts in Fort Kent, Maine, and runs south all the way to Florida. The eastern terminus of the eastern section of U.S. Route 2 starts in Houlton, near the New Brunswick, Canada border to Rouses Point, New York, at US 11. Route 2, Route 6 and Route 9 are often used by motorists of the Maritime Provinces en route to other destinations in the United States, or as a shortcut to Quebec Province, Canada.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
