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.

The early morning ferry carries us to Islesboro where stately pines and 40 room cottages serve as a backdrop for our ride around one of Maine’s prettiest islands. Tonight we explore Penobscot Bay from the deck of a classic wooden schooner before a casual dinner.
Just south of Camden, Rockland is rapidly becoming a summer destination in its own right. Today’s ride will carry us to Rockland and the Owls Head Light. Spend the afternoon wandering the Farnsworth Museum of Art or choose to cycle the rural beauty of the St George Peninsula and around Rackliff Island. Note: The tour generally concludes between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm.
