THROUGH THE HEART OF NEW ENGLAND

from £3899
Boasting rivers, forests, lakes and mountain ranges, this holiday offers exceptional scenery as well as an insight into the quirky town of Salem, famed for its witch trials.

Guided Walking Holidays Through the Heart of New England

Canada and New England are best explored on foot, and with a network of national park trails and eclectic cities, you are spoilt for choice. On this tour, expect to experience a wonderful diversity of natural landscapes, narrow lanes in Montréal and the walled city of Québec. But let’s not forget about the famous autumnal colours.

We spend the night in Montréal (Canada) before heading to Québec City, both guided by a local. We then cross into the US to discover two contrasting parks; Baxter State Park which offers scenic trails in rugged wilderness, and Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, where land, sea and mountains meet. Our journey continues to New Hampshire, home of the White Mountains National Forest, we walk a section of the world-renowned Appalachian Trail. In Stowe our walks take us up to Mount Hanger, traversing through leafy woodland and hopefully Fall colours.
