Program Description

Ready to schedule your own adventure? Simply request a custom departure for one of the many highly rated, all-inclusive trips you’ll find on our site – or work with one of our knowledgeable Adventure Consultants to build your own excursion from scratch.

Warmer weather might have you kayaking along the Maine coast and camping on remote islands, exploring hiking trails in Baxter State Park, biking along Acadia’s famous carriage roads, or canoeing through history on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. Winter presents its own exciting opportunities as well, like lodge-to-lodge snowshoeing and cross-country skiing experiences on majestic Maine woodland trails.

All the details are up to you, including when to leave, the activities you’ll enjoy, and where you’d like to stay along the way. Depending on the trip you plan, we can offer a variety of accommodations – from beautifully rustic backcountry campsites to hotels, lodges and inns with more modern amenities.

A private trip with Outdoor Discovery Programs is the ideal option for family getaways and reunions, celebrating special occasions, or if you just want to experience the outdoors on your own terms, with friends and family by your side. We’ll bring the gear and provide all the expertise you need – you get to plan the rest!

Please see the L.L.Bean Private Maine Adventure Questionnaire in preparation for your call with your Adventure Consultant.

Final trip cost will be determined prior to booking. Trip cost is dependent on group size, itinerary, and other requested accommodations.

Participant Agreement Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
