This American Scenic Byway, affectionately called "The Kanc", has scenic vistas and prime foliage viewing abound, and the morning is dedicated to finding the best spots for viewing the vibrant fall colours. Your afternoon is free to spend as you wish. Perhaps enjoy a stroll through town or stop and take in the natural beauty of the area.

Bid farewell to the White Mountains as you head into the pine forests of the Maine interior.

Day 7: Acadia National Park Excursion

At 1,523 feet (464 metres), Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park is the first spot in the United States where you can see the sunrise. You won't be getting up that early, but you'll still have plenty of time to admire the view from the top of the peak before descending to discover the natural riches of New England's only National Park. Marvel at granite cliffs overlooking dramatic, windswept beaches, graceful stone bridges arching over rushing streams and stands of ancient maples, their leaves glowing fiery red, burnt orange and mustard yellow in the crisp autumn air. Back in Bar Harbor, enjoy an afternoon on your own. Sip a coffee by the sea, stroll quaint Main Street or take an optional nature cruise on Frenchman Bay.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 8: Bar Harbor - Maine Coast - Portsmouth

After experiencing the majestic colours of New England's forests and mountains in the autumn, it's time to embark on a rambling journey down the rocky beaches and cliffs of Maine's coast. Head down the coastal Highway 1 passed lighthouses, fisheries and seaside dwellings that are home to everyone from local lobstermen to vacationing presidents. Travel south to Portsmouth which sits near the mouth of the Piscataqua River that divides New Hampshire and Maine. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Portsmouth to its list of Dozen Distinctive Destinations. Enjoy a Farewell Dinner at a local restaurant and toast your fellow travellers as you end your fall foliage experience.

Hotel: Sheraton Portsmouth
