Maine Holidays

Rugged, lighthouse-dotted coasts

The northernmost New England state, Maine has an undeniably wild beauty. Craggy mountains rise abruptly from opaque forest beds; rugged, lighthouse-dotted coasts span the state's eastern edge; a patchwork of lakes and marshes interrupt rolling fields.

We love viewing Maine's spectacular untamed beauty on an autumn drive along the 20-mile Park Loop Road of Acadia National Park. The gentle-sloping road winds through dense woodlands, showing colours that melt from green to yellow to bright red in a spectacular display of New England's autumn foliage. This is New England at its best. Take a foodie trip around the area, feasting on lobster and beer, or enjoy an outdoor adventure with white-water rapids, cycle paths and kayak trips.

See more of New England and twin your Maine visit with Connecticut, or visit Vermont for farmer's markets and quaint villages.

"Maine is the biggest producer of blueberries, and these are turned into great desserts - for something a bit different why not try blueberry wine."
