Anniversary Getaways in Maine


Maine Weekend Vacations

All of us up here in Northern Maine know how spectacular the area is…

but it is affirming when the area gets national exposure!

It is always so gratifying when guests choose Moosehead Lake as a destination.  Many visitors announce that they are coming back because they have so many more sights they want to see.

Last year, I put together an example of an 8 day itinerary.

For those of you who missed it, I am revisiting it:

Aerial View of Mt. Kineo

Mt. Kineo

  • Day 1Seaplane Ride: Moosehead Lake is the biggest sea plane base east of the Mississippi, so take in the massive Moosehead Lake by viewing it from a seaplane.

Fall Foliage & Wildlife Tours

  • Day 2: Moose Safari: Take a guided tour by an expert Maine Guide to a remote area where you will then board a canoe.   You will observe wildlife such as moose, loons, river otters and bald eagles.  Many times the moose are actually swimming right in front of you!
  • Day 3: Take a 30 minute scenic drive to a boat launch where you will board a boat taxi and take a short ride to historic Mount Kineo. Take one of the various paths (depending on your ability) to the top where the views are magnificent!

The Katahdin

  • Day 4: Take a relaxing cruise up Moosehead Lake on the historic steamboat the Katahdin.

  • Day 5: Take a picnic lunch and hike to a magnificent gorge called Gulf Hagas (also called the Grand Canyon of Maine).  We alsooffer Guided Waterfall Tours.
  • Day 6: White Water Rafting: The Moosehead Lake Region is situated between 3 white water rafting rivers, so choose a ½ day or whole day trip on one of the various leveled rivers by a licensed Maine white water guide.

Kayaking on Moosehead Lake

  • Day 7: Rent a kayak and explore Moosehead Lake’s many coves.
