You can get an insider's look at Acadia National Park with the help of a tour guide, who will be happy to share local knowledge, historical anecdotes, and recommendations for must-see attractions. You can choose a guided walk, a bus or trolley tour, or a boat tour to help you learn more about the park.
If you'd prefer to take your time exploring the natural features of the park, you may want to try a guided hike. Rangers offer daily excursions that will help you learn more about whatever your specific interest might be, from birding to geology to aquaculture to botany. If you'd like to learn more about the history and culture of the area, you can take a guided stroll through Bar Harbor past galleries, museums, restaurants and boutiques.
Bus and Trolley Tours
If you'd like to cover more ground than a hike would allow, you can take a bus or trolley tour. In a few hours, you can see features such as Sand Beach, Thunder Hole and the top of Cadillac Mountain.
If you'd like to explore the waters surrounding Mount Desert Island, you can take a boat tour run by a cruise operator or a park service employee. You can fish, watch for whales, or simply enjoy the salty air.
