Tour Itinerary

Welcome to Boston, the Cradle of Liberty and once home to such famous sons as Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and Benjamin Franklin.

This evening, we'll meet our Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception to kick-start our colour-filled journey through New England landscapes.

Day 2: Boston - Lexington and Concord - Pittsfield

March to independence, exploring Boston's historic sites. We'll spend the morning weaving along the Freedom Trail which reveals the rich history of the American revolution. Stop at Lexington and Concord, the site where "the shot heard round the world" was fired. We'll embark on an afternoon drive along the Mohawk Trail, an early Native American and colonial trade route, and the first designated scenic drive in New England.

Meals: Full Breakfast

 

Day 3: Pittsfield - Quechee - Woodstock - Burlington

Drive past picture-perfect farmlands and old-world towns en route to the historic wool mill in Quechee.

Then, savour a Regional Meal lunch featuring local ingredients arranged on Simon Pearce's beautiful stem and flatware. After a stop in the historic farming community of Woodstock, we'll continue to our hotel located at a nearby mountain resort.

Day 4: Burlington - Stowe - White Mountains - North Conway (2 Nights)

Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Therapy - if the very thought of these tickles your sweet tooth, you'll delight in a visit to Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory today, where you'll have an opportunity to sample some of their uniquely named flavours. Venture into New Hampshire, the Presidential Range of the White Mountains and Bretton Woods for a stunning glimpse of Mount Washington, the tallest peak in the northeast. We'll continue to North Conway on the edge of White Mountain National Forest, renowned as a popular adventure holiday hub. Later, get acquainted with the local flora and fauna during an engaging talk by a Local Specialist, followed by dinner at your hotel.

Day 5: Kancamagus Excursion

Journey along "The Kanc", an American Scenic Byway that cuts through the White Mountain National Forest and provides exquisite views of the White Mountains, Rocky Gorge and several waterfalls. But the star of the show is undoubtedly the glowing fall display that dots scenic New England. Spend your afternoon at leisure, immersing yourself in the blazing natural beauty of the area.

Meals: Full Breakfast

 

Day 6: North Conway - Bar Harbor (2 Nights)

We continue through the lush pine forests, highlands and river valleys that define the rugged Maine landscape. Descending "Downeast", the looming Atlantic swells of Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island are our final destination for the day. This evening, we'll join our travel companions for a traditional lobster dinner. Enjoy the juicy flavours of local seafood with a fisherman and Local Specialist who will share insights into lobster fishing.

Day 7: Acadia National Park Excursion

Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park is the highest point along the Atlantic Seaboard and first spot in the United States where you'll see the sunrise. Admire the magnificent view over the Schoodic Peninsula, pink granite cliffs and ancient maple forests - their leaves glowing fiery red, burnt orange and mustard yellow in the crisp autumn air. We'll return to Bar Harbor for an afternoon at leisure or consider joining an optional nature cruise on Frenchman Bay.

Day 8: Bar Harbor - Maine Coast - Portsmouth

The intense hues of New England's forests and mountains linger as we journey south past the rocky beaches and cliffs of Maine's rugged coast.
