Full Itinerary

July 23-28, 2023

Join us in enjoying simple days surrounded by nature in the Pine Tree State. Our journey begins in Portland—Maine’s most populous city—overlooking a stunning rocky coastline, before heading west. From our home base, we will spend the next several days traveling around the striking mountains, crystal-clear lakes and streams, and quaint New England towns that grace this verdant landscape. With TNC scientists and partners as guides, we will travel on foot, by kayak and in the occasional vehicle to experience unique parts of this charming and casual “Lakes and Mountains Region” that most visitors never see.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Kayak Maine’s Androscoggin River while learning about the watershed’s rich history.
  • Ride a “chondola” for a bird’s-eye view of the Mahoosuc Range.
  • Attend a screening of “Love Flows,” a World Fish Migration Day documentary, followed by a Q&A with TNC experts.
  • Go birding in a lush boreal forest with a local guide.
