Whether you're a first-time camper or you have been pitching a tent for years, you may want to consider a guided Maine camping trip. Camping with a guide takes away the stress of trip planning, and adds fun, safety and learning to a trip. Completely outfitted adventures include all fees, equipment, transportation, meals and required permits. You can choose a pre-planned itinerary offered by an outfitting service, Registered Professional Maine Guide, Maine Wilderness Guide, a Sea Kayak Guide, or create your own vacation. Guided trips typically range from two days to a week, but custom trips can last longer. Activities during trips can include canoeing or kayaking, swimming, hiking, fishing or wildlife watching. Many coastal outfitters and kayak businesses offer overnight island camping trips. Guides can share their knowledge of local history and bring you to places on land and water that only they know about.
