Whether you are flying over Maine’s pristine waterways on a scenic air tour or parachuting towards its verdant lands, the views—and thrills—are unforgettable.
Maine is famous for what the art-minded call its “northern high-contrast light,” which lends an ethereal, glittering essence to its fields and forests, illuminating the crash of its waves and the lull of its marshes. What better way to experience this dazzling light than closer to its source? Take in sweeping vistas of Maine’s natural beauty from a vantage point unlike any other.
Savor the excitement of a hot air balloon ride at one of Maine’s two annual hot air balloon festivals, held in Lewiston/Auburn and Presque Isle, as they celebrate with whimsical and colorful balloons dotting the sky and high-in-the-sky thrills.
Climb aboard a scenic flight offered by one of Maine’s many air tours for the ultimate bird’s-eye view of Maine.

Or, bring family and friends for a day at an aerial adventure park, where you’ll discover a playground in the sky of ziplining, ropes courses and more.
