  • Days 1 Boston

    You've arrived in Boston, a city which played a key role in the American Revolution. Before a welcome meeting at 18:00 hrs tonight, why not discover this historical city at your own pace? Accommodation: Hotel included | Meals: Paid locally

  • Days 2 Stowe

    En route to Stowe you stop at the fully functional Sugarbush Farm to sample fresh cheeses and maple syrup (with the opportunity to purchase). Next up, Stowe lies in a broad, fertile valley between Mount Mansfield and the peaks of the Green Mountains to the west, and the Worcester Range to the east. You have the opportunity to taste your way to Stowe with stops at Ben & Jerry's, Cabbot Cheese and Lake Champlain Chocolate Shop (own expense). Stowe will be your base for the next two nights where it's easy to fill your time with a walk by the river or explore the local crafts and cuisine. If you would prefer to hit a nearby trail you also have this option. Accommodation: Camping included | Meals: Lunch and dinner included

  • Days 3 Stowe

    Today you can stretch your legs on a full day hike (18 km) on the Worcester via Skyline Trail. Wildlife is commonly spotted along the trail, including moose and bear. This primitive yet sublime trail is rated as difficult, but as soon as you set foot on the trail, your efforts will quickly be rewarded with some of Vermont's most scenic ridges. The trail will lead you through mossy forest floors, rocky outcrops and miles and miles of pure, unadulterated hiking pleasure. Accommodation: Camping included | Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner included

  • Days 4-5 White Mountains National Forest

    You'll walk the backbone of the Northern Appalachians, the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Many of the trails here are above the timberline, offering wonderful views of this impressive range. On arrival you delve straight into the beauty of this area with a planned hike to Lonesome Lake. The trail leads to the southern end of Lonesome Lake with an additional 0.5 miles to an Appalachian Mountain hut, with the possibility of extending. Most of the trail is tree covered so will be shaded from the sun, making it even more of an enjoyable experience. On day five you have the opportunity to enjoy the Franconia Ridge hike which starts right at your campsite. Rated as one of the best hikes in New England, you'll have the opportunity to scale three peaks (Little Haystack, Mount Lincoln and Mount Lafayette) all of which offer wonderful views. This area is well known to hikers all over the world, both for its stunning scenery and constantly changing weather. Challenge the elements here or catch the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, which began operating in 1938 and was the first passenger aerial tramway in North America. From the top there are panoramic views of three states, so it is mostly definitely worth a trip. Accommodation: Camping included I Meals: Breakfast (x2), lunch (x2) and dinner (x2) included

  • Days 6-8 Baxter State Park

    You travel from one of the most well-known segments of the Appalachian Trail, to the most pristine. Baxter State Park is home to Mount Katahdin, the finishing point of the 3,500 km long Appalachian Trail. Wander and enjoy the largest of the most remote wilderness areas in the eastern USA. Here you can truly get away from it all on footpaths that wind through undisturbed forest and along the crystal clear lakes and streams of northern Maine. Keep both eyes and ears open for the chance to encounter some of the wildlife that thrives here. This tranquil wilderness is virtually untouched since the days of the first settlers, over three hundred years ago. As you pause to reflect on the solitude of this beautiful place, it's hard to imagine that two-thirds of America's population lives within a day's drive of the Appalachian Trail. There are two options with varying difficulty; the first is Mount Katahdin - Baxter Peak, which is a strenuous hike with more than 4,150 ft. elevation gain and taking approximately 10 hours. The rewarding views on this trail are some of the finest in New England, but should only be attempted by those fit enough. The second option is a nature trail to Daicey and Kidney Ponds, with the Appalachian Trail running through a section of it, which is an easy to moderate walk with little to no elevation difference. Canoes can be rented after a couple of miles for a very different and unique experience, or you can simply sit back and admire the views. Accommodation: Camping included I Meals: Breakfast (x3), lunch (x3) and dinner (x2) included
