Scenic Flights of Acadia is one of 25 Best Winter Thrills in Acadia According to “Downeast Magazine”

Downeast Magazine wrote a great article about things to do in Acadia National Park in the winter. It is the cover feature in the February, 2015 issue. Scenic Flights of Acadia is featured as well as a beautiful aerial photo of Bar Harbor. They flew with us last winter in preparation of this year’ magazine article. Although we offer all of our regular flights along with custom flights during the off-season, we do require reservations a day or two in advance. The views in the winter are just as breath taking as in the summer, if not more so. Give us a call to reserve a flight. Remember, like the article says – the airplanes have heat!

In addition to featuring Scenic Flights of Acadia, the article describes various groomed trails for cross-country skiing, along with trails for snow shoeing and hiking. Resources for winter lodging, dining, bird watching and tours are provided.

The article stresses that the historic views of Acadia National Park and the majestic mountains and lighthouses are the same as in the summer, but absolutely no crowds or traffic to compete with. Except you can expect more people to come to Acadia in the winter after reading the February issue of Downeast Magazine!
