Trolley Tours

Hop aboard a comfortable tour bus or old time trolley for a grand tour of the must-see sights of Acadia National Park. Enjoy the incredible scenery while learning about the history, homes, and famous names; the geology, the ocean, the mountains; the bays, lakes and ponds; and the marine, plant and animal life of this fascinating island. See everything from the beautiful mansions of Bar Harbor and the crashing waves of Thunder Hole to the magnificent summit of Cadillac Mountain, the sublime scenery of Jordan Pond House, and the lovely Wild Gardens of Acadia at Sieur du Monts Spring. Or take a horse-drawn carriage tour of the park’s world famous carriage roads while visiting the Rockefeller Bridges, Day Mountain, and Jordan Pond House.

Oli’s Trolley, based in Bar Harbor, provides park tours narrated by fun and knowledgeable conductors. One-hour tours are offered from four times daily from June through October, while two-hour tours operate twice-daily from May to October. Ask about additional tours in high summer, including the popular sunset tour.
