An almost untouched nature with dense forests, rocky coastlines and dark blue lakes awaits visitors in the US state of Maine.
The state of Maine is located on the northeastern border of the United States on the border with Canada and is part of New England. The epithet Pine Tree State shows that the landscape is characterized by thick pine forests. The wide, rocky coasts on the Atlantic are also characteristic of the state, which is roughly the size of Austria and is inhabited by 1.3 million people.
Augusta is the capital of Maine and its small size already illustrates the relaxed lifestyle of the locals. Attractions at Kennebec Rive include the Maine State House and the Viles Arboretum. The New England state is particularly popular for its varied, unspoiled nature. Especially along the long, mostly rocky coast, you can take wonderful hikes. The highlight is the route that leads past the Portland Head Light. The oldest lighthouse in Maine was built in the 18th century. The Arcadia National Park in the northeast of the state is also impressive.
In the park on Mount Desert Island, there are breathtaking rock formations created after the last ice age to be explored, as well as steep mountains and dark blue lakes. In addition, among other things, black bears, foxes and squirrels inhabit the natural jewel. Further highlights in the almost untouched nature are the wildly romantic Moosehead Lake and the Baxter State Park, which is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and offers fantastic views.
