Flight to Boston

Colours of New England

Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1: Dublin - Boston - Arrival

Start your day with a flight from Dublin or Shannon Airport to Boston. Upon arrival at Logan International Airport, proceed independently to your hotel where you will meet your ATI Tour Director in the evening.


Day 2: Boston - Cape Neddick Lighthouse - Kennebunkport - Portland

Along the route north of Boston lies over centuries of history as well as some of the East Coast’s finest beaches and seascapes. After passing through Portsmouth, the oldest community in New Hampshire known for its thriving fishing community and historic buildings, you will stop at New England’s most iconic light that sits on the summit of Cape Neddick, a small off-shore rocky island. The Cape Neddick Lighthouse (also called ‘the Nubble”) is considered the most photographed lighthouse in America. Your next stop will be Kennebunkport. Kennebunkport is a small, charming coastal town and home to the palatial summer estates of prominent politicians, including the 41st U.S. President, George Herbert Walker Bush. You will experience first-hand why it was voted ‘the place to be all year’. From Kennebunkport, it’s on to Portland, Maine’s largest city. You will enjoy the beauty of this coastal region, including lighthouses and local lobster fishermen. Afterwards, you are free to explore Portland, stroll the cobblestone streets of Portland’s famous Old Port waterfront and perhaps you may wish to enjoy the famous Maine lobster roll!


Day 3: Portland - Acadia National Park - Bar Harbour

Journey to the North today to the “Crown Jewel of the North Atlantic Coast”: Acadia National Park. Situated on the coast of Maine and home to stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife, Acadia National Park is beautiful year-round and gorgeous in every season. You’ll pass through quaint villages where local fishermen mark their grounds with colourful buoys prior to arriving in the small town of Bar Harbour. Known for its stunning coastal beauty, Bar Harbour has a world-renowned ambiance that blends seashore community, Downeast character, and fresh Maine Lobsters. Your afternoon is free to explore the quaint village of Bar Harbour on your own. Galleries, boutiques line the village of Bar Harbour.


Day 4: Bar Harbour - Kancamagus Hwy - Bretton Woods (White Mountains)

Travel inland and head for the White Mountains, the ‘rooftop of New England”. This journey will take you through the pristine and scenic woodlands along the Kancamagus Highway to Franconia Notch which is an eight-mile pass between two mountain ranges, both known for their renowned foliage areas and natural landscapes. Be prepared for a miraculous view which is the natural wonder in Franconia Notch State Park, the Flume Gorge State Park.


Day 5: White Mountains - Flume Gorge

The White Mountains of New Hampshire are a wonderful place to escape, explore, and create unforgettable memories. This morning, head to the Flume Gorge, part of Franconia Notch State Park, a natural gorge extending 800 ft horizontally at the base of Mount Liberty in Franconia Notch State Park, New Hampshire. Experience towering peaks, stunning scenery unrivaled anywhere in the Northeast, spectacular waterfalls, and tax-free shopping. Enjoy a visit to a local Maple Farm and watch how the famous 100% pure Maple Syrup is being made. Tradition pairs with the latest advancements in technology to produce the finest maple syrup and product from the healthiest trees.


Day 6: Bretton Woods (White Mountains) - Newport

Today we journey south and experience many miles of forest scenery before leaving New Hampshire. We then enter Rhode Island, the ‘Ocean State’, home to spectacular coastal scenery and awe-inspiring architecture. We then arrive at our destination for today: Newport, which is considered by many as the Sailing Capital of the World. Here you may wish to explore Newport’s natural beauty along its Cliff Walk. Here, between the pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean and sprawling lawns, sit the famed Gilded Age mansions that once were the summer playgrounds for socialite families such as the Astors and Vanderbilts. Visit one of these opulent mansions for a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle.


Day 7: Newport - Cape Cod

From the opulence of Newport you’ll continue onward today to the natural beauty of Cape Cod where beaches with high sand dunes, beautiful rocks, and the never-ending sea await. Beachcombing in Cape Cod is a wonderful pastime. While there are plenty of shells to discover, there are also many unique sea stones to be found on the shores of Cape Cod.


Day 8: Cape Cod

Today is your day to explore or to rest in the beauty of Cape Cod. Your Tour Director will have plenty of suggestions which may include, weather permitting, a ferry ride to Martha’s Vineyard (optional, fee applies) that is known for its proud history and unique character or perhaps a journey to experience the magic of Provincetown, an oasis on the Cape that sits on the edge of the continent, 60 miles out to sea and is truly a small haven at the end of the world, with the most beautiful beaches of New England. Provincetown also offers a glimpse into the history and legacy of the US 35th president John F. Kennedy.


Day 9: Cape Cod - Plymouth - Boston

Today you will have the opportunity to visit Plymouth, the town where English colonists first made a home in New England. Discover Plymouth Rock, which was the landing place of the Pilgrims and the famous Mayflower (onboard admission not included), the ship that carried the Pilgrims from England to Plymouth before heading to Boston. Here you may retrace portions of the Freedom Trail which could include such experiences as a stroll beside Boston Common, King’s Chapel, the Boston Massacre site, and numerous pubs and taverns where America’s Founding Fathers toasted freedom! Perhaps you may wish to try a local cup of clam chowder (“chowdah”) while there. Explore Quincy Market, Boston’s first marketplace from the 1800’s, now home to boutiques, cafes, and shops.
