We will visit the famous Acadia National Park
. We'll climb the mountains, go down to the beaches and even visit the museum
. Visits to national reserves and parks in the north of the United States are also planned.
This journey takes place mainly in one of the northernmost states of the United States, Maine. The main purpose of the trip is to visit one of the most unique American natural objects - Acadia Park. Its area is about 200 square kilometers, it is home to an incredible number of different species of animals. We will take the ring road on the island of Mount Desert, which passes through the most beautiful places of the park.
In addition, we'll also stop at a few interesting places on the way to and from Portland. And the final chord of the trip will be a visit to the White Mountain National Park. Here, as well as in Acadia, we are waiting for the incredible nature of the American North with all its features, among which there are many opportunities for active recreation, as well as beautiful, pristine landscapes.
