As autumn arrives, admire the fiery red, orange and yellow flames of fall foliage on your scenic road trip from Beantown Boston to the rocky Atlantic headlands of Maine.

Journey past lighthouses, fisheries and seaside dwellings that have sheltered everyone from local lobstermen to holidaying presidents. Admire the magnificent view over the Schoodic Peninsula, pink granite cliffs and ancient maple forests - their leaves glowing fiery red, burnt orange and mustard yellow in the crisp autumn air. Travel along "The Kanc", an American Scenic Byway that cuts through the White Mountain National Forest and provides exquisite views of the White Mountains, Rocky Gorge and several waterfalls. Discover Boston, Portsmouth and Pittsfield.

Day 2 - Boston - Lexington and Concord - Pittsfield 

March to independence, exploring Boston's historic sites. You'll spend the morning weaving along the Freedom Trail which reveals the rich history of the American revolution.

You'll embark on an afternoon drive along the Mohawk Trail, an early Native American and colonial trade route, and the first designated scenic drive in New England.

Day 3 - Pittsfield – Quechee– Woodstock– Burlington

Drive past picture-perfect farmlands and old-world towns en route to the historic wool mill in Quechee.

Then, savour a Regional Meal lunch featuring local ingredients arranged on Simon Pearce's beautiful stem and flatware. 

Day 4 - Burlington – Stowe – White Mountains – North Conway

Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Therapy - if the very thought of these tickles your sweet tooth, you'll delight in a visit to Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory today. Venture into New Hampshire, the Presidential Range of the White Mountains and Bretton Woods for a stunning glimpse of Mount Washington, the tallest peak in the northeast. Continue to North Conway on the edge of White Mountain National Forest, renowned as a popular adventure holiday hub. 

Day 5 - Kancamagus

Journey along "The Kanc", an American Scenic Byway that cuts through the White Mountain National Forest and provides exquisite views of the White Mountains, Rocky Gorge and several waterfalls. But the star of the show is undoubtedly the glowing fall display that dots scenic New England. 

Day 6 - North Conway - Bar Harbor

This evening, join your travel companions for a traditional lobster dinner. 

Day 7 - Acadia National Park

Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park is the highest point along the Atlantic Seaboard and first spot in the United States where you'll see the sunrise.

Day 8 - Bar Harbor - Maine Coast - Portsmouth 

The intense hues of New England's forests and mountains linger as you journey south past the rocky beaches and cliffs of Maine's rugged coast.  Travel south to the mouth of the Piscataqua River and the historic seaport city of Portsmouth, one of the oldest cities in the United States.
