Course Description

Six outdoor adventures. Two full days. One unforgettable weekend.

This summer, truly experience Maine by boat, bike and SUP with L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Trips, a leader in outdoor adventures for over 40 years. Designed for an ultimate Maine experience, this fun-filled small-group adventure features an exciting variety of outdoor activities from our popular Discovery Course series.

Led by our expert instructors, you'll paddle to favorite destinations by kayak; learn how to stand up paddle board; tour scenic routes by road bike; try your hand at fly casting and wing shooting; and practice hitting the bulls-eye with a bow and arrow. Designed for all levels of adventurers, all equipment and training is provided, and no previous experience required. Our guides love what they do and where they live and cannot wait to share these Maine adventures with you.

After a fun-filled day of Discovery Courses, we will return to our oceanfront campsite, which includes comfortable tents with cots and hots showers. And, since a trip to Maine is not complete without enjoying traditional Vacationland favorites, our Discovery Weekend trip also includes a hearty lobster (or steak) dinner and a delicious blueberry pancake breakfast.

With lodging, meals, expert instruction, gear, incredible outdoor setting and plenty of fun included, there is no better way to discover Maine.

If you are interested in a customized version of this trip (adjusted length, days, etc.), please give us a call at 1-888-615-9979. We are happy to discuss custom trip options with you.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

**Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
