Cold weather months in Maine require people to embrace “koselig”, the Norwegian word for warm and cozy feelings. Thick socks and hot drinks after a snowy hike or ski are all things that evoke koselig. Winter is the perfect time to enjoy Acadia’s winter wonderland or slow down and plan for summer fun. Your vacation awaits!

With nine bus routes connecting campgrounds, hotels and inns, and island villages, you can sit back, take in the natural beauty around you, and connect with family and friends.

ACADIA: THE COMPLETE GUIDE
While grabbing lunch recently at Peekytoe, Jen found James Kaiser’s 2016 edition of Acadia: The Complete Guide. Filled with stunning photos, this local guide is like Tapas, you get a little bit of everything: rich imagery, island history, and highlights of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park.
If it piques your interest in the park, you can purchase an additional hiking or biking guide to give you a complete entrée on what the area has to offer.
WANNA CATCH A FLICK?
Mount Desert Island has two unique movie theaters that are worth a visit!
Reel Pizza: Catch the newest releases or an independent/foreign film while eating gourmet pizza and drinking locally crafted beer all while relaxing on a couch. And the popcorn toppings are to die for!
Criterion Theater: Built in 1932 (and was once a speakeasy!), the non-profit Criterion shows movies, live theater, and concerts. The stunning art deco building was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 1980.
