Tour Overview

Nestled amongst verdant hills, with stately old houses, a picturesque harbor, and a charming main street, it is no wonder Camden has been voted the prettiest town in Maine.

Your 3-day bike tour of this classic Maine town begins with a bike ride along a tree-lined ocean preserve and through lush farmland ringed with ancient rock walls. We continue by cycling one of Maine’s most beautiful islands in the heart of Penobscot Bay with ocean views around every corner.

You conclude your tour cycling to the town of Rockland and to my favorite lighthouse, the majestic Owls Head Light. Along the way take time to explore the areas’ many galleries, and relax aboard the deck of an antique wooden sailboat as we enjoy a sunset cruise on Penobscot Bay.
