A scenic drive along Park Loop Road includes all the highlights of the Acadia National Park Tour.

Pass Thunder Hole and Otter Cliff where the right tidal conditions can send flumes of ocean spray high into the air, and stop here for photos, traffic permitting.

From the summit of Cadillac Mountain, weather permitting, marvel at the 360-degree view of the coast. See Sand Beach, Otter Cliffs and the Jordan Pond House -- the famous restaurant where tea on the lawn has been a tradition for more than a century. 

A licensed Maine lobsterman will explain the life cycle of the lobster, and demonstrate the use of authentic traps and show you how these succulent creatures are caught.

Discover the exclusive world of the Gilded Age with a visit to a turn-of-the-century ‘cottage’ -- one of Bar Harbor's last remaining summer mansions. Your guide will share tales of a bygone era, when America's wealthiest families made Bar Harbor their summer playground. Watch for High Seas -- the stately cottage built for an English bride who booked passage on the Titanic and never saw her dream home.


At Cadillac Mountain, walking is at your discretion. Walking surfaces are paved and partially accessible by wheelchair, but there are some uneven areas and some steps. If weather conditions preclude a visit to Cadillac Mountain; a stop at Jordan Pond or the Visitor Center will be substituted. Visibility at Cadillac Mountain is weather permitting. National Park Service regulations strictly control the number of coaches allowed at the top of Cadillac Mountain. In September and October, this tour will not stop at Cadillac Mountain; another scenic photo stop will be substituted at the driver’s discretion.
