Day 1: Fly to Boston. On arrival make your way to your hotel to meet your tour escort and fellow travellers.

Day 2 Boston/Portland: : Along the route north of Boston lies centuries of history as well as some of the East Coast’s finest beaches and seascapes. First stop is at New England’s iconic Cape Neddick “Nubble” Lighthouse, the most photographed lighthouse in America. Continue to Kennebunkport, a charming small coastal town and home to palatial summer estates of prominent politicians. Then, it’s on to Portland, Maine’s largest city. This evening join fellow travellers for an optional traditional lobster dinner (extra cost).

Day 3 Portland/Bar Harbor: Journey to the “Crown Jewel of the North Atlantic Coast” - Acadian National Park. You’ll pass through quaint villages where local fishermen mark their grounds with colourful buoys prior to arriving in the small town of Bar Harbor, known for its stunning coastal beauty. Your afternoon is free to explore this quaint town at your leisure.

Day 4 Bar Harbor/Bretton Woods: Travel inland towards the spectacular White Mountains, the “rooftop of New England”. This journey will take you through pristine and scenic woodlands along the Kanacamagus Highway to Franconia Notch which is an eight mile pass between two mountain ranges. Be prepared for views of the Flume Gorge State Park, a natural gorge extending 800ft horizontally at the base of Mount Liberty.

Day 5  Bretton Woods: In the White Mountains of New Hampshire you’ll experience towering peaks, stunning scenery unrivalled anywhere in the Northeast, spectacular waterfalls and tax-free shopping. Enjoy a visit to a local Maple Farm and watch how the famous 100% pure Maple Syrup is made.

Day 6  Bretton Woods/Newport: The journey south takes in miles of forest before reaching the smallest state in the USA, Rhode Island. Home to incredible coastal scenery and awe-inspiring architecture, Newport is considered by many a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. Nowhere is Newport’s natural beauty more on display than on Cliff Walk. Here, between the pounding surf of the Atlantic and sprawling lawns, sit the famed Gilded Age mansions that once were the summer playgrounds for socialite families such as the Astor’s and Vanderbilt’s. Visit one of these opulent mansions for a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle of the privileged from a bygone era.

Day 7  Newport/Cape Cod: From the opulence of Newport continue to the unspoiled natural beauty of Cape Cod where picturesque beaches with high sand dunes, never-ending sea, lighthouses rising along the coast, and gorgeous sunsets await.

Day 8  Cape Cod: At leisure to explore or sit back and relax. Alternatively, join an optional tour to Martha’s Vineyard (extra cost). A short 45 minute ferry ride from Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is the jewel of New England. Alternatively, experience the magic of Provincetown, an oasis on the Cape that sits on the edge of the continent, 60 miles out to sea and a truly small haven at the end of the world.

Day 9  Cape Cod/Boston: Begin with a visit to Plymouth where English colonists first made a home in New England. See Plymouth Rock, where according to tradition, the passengers of the Mayflower first set foot in the “New World”. Returning to Boston, you’ll retrace the steps of the Freedom Trail, which may include a stroll beside Boston Common, King’s Chapel and numerous taverns where America’s Founding Fathers toasted freedom. Afterwards, taking time for lunch and perhaps explore Quincy Market.

Day 10 Boston: Time at leisure before you transfer to the airport where your tour concludes.
