Walk America's oldest and most popular trail
Walk in the footsteps of history, exploring the forests and peaks of America's oldest and most popular footpath, the Appalachian Trail, ideal for nature lovers and photographers alike. Our daywalks will reveal the best highlights of the region as we delve into the mountain ranges of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts. In Autumn, the pristine forests of New England transform into vivid hues of crimson and orange, whilst in contrast, the shores of Mount Desert Island remain rugged and wild. Acadia National Park is a real highlight, offering unsurpassable mountain, island and ocean vistas.
