For over 100 years, Monhegan has been home to a flourishing artist colony and fishing village.

Enjoy a guided tour and tasting with local brewers at Monhegan Brewing Company. There’s no better way to kick off autumn in Maine! Included in cost: coach bus transportation, ferry passage, trail map of the island, tour and tasting at Monhegan Brewing Company, and a few island-made goodies to take home. Lunch not included. We will be using a coach bus for transportation, equipped with a restroom. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring extra layers, comfortable walking shoes, water and snacks, if you choose. This trip is designed for active individuals who are comfortable walking substantial distances on uneven, somewhat steep, terrain. Hiking is not a requirement and is based on individual preference, but walking is required on the island. This trip is family-friendly.
