Aries – Known for being independent, courageous and unstoppable, Aries will find great fun in leading a group hike up one of the many peaks in Acadia National Park. Hiking trails range from moderate to challenging and Aries will know the right path to take.

Taurus – Tackling the mighty Atlantic Ocean by kayaktakes commitment and a strong will. With these traits, Taurus will enjoy the challenge of paddling through the waves. From novices to experts, the sea-kayaking opportunities in Bar Harbor will challenge all skill levels.

Gemini – While always carrying on traditions, Bar Harbor also likes to keep visitors on their toes by hosting new and exciting events, perfect for energetic and talkative Geminis.

Cancer – With the element of water in their sign and a tenacious attitude, those with the sign of Cancer will feel at ease aboard a whale watching expedition. A boat tour takes whale watchers miles offshore to see these creatures, among the largest on earth: humpbacks, finbacks, minkes and right whales.

Leo – The rocky granite that makes up the shoreline of Acadia National Park challenges those with strength, devotion and self-confidence to climb up their cliffs.

The Abbe inspires visitors to learn about the Wabanki Nations and offers dynamic, stimulating exhibitions with spaces for quiet reflection throughout.

Libra – Libras are lovers of beautiful things. Representing the element of air, a voyage with Scenic Flights of Acadia will feel natural as they fly over the clouds and tree line and experience the island from above.

Sagittarius – Of all the zodiac signs, Sagittarius is the sign that most loves to travel and be outdoors. They will fall in love with the majestic scenery, amazing sunsets and unforgettable adventures in Acadia National Park and will feel most comfortable camping in one of the many places to camp in Acadia.

Capricorn – With a disciplined and self-controlled personality, Capricorns will enjoy a yoga or fitness class at Destination Health on Mount Desert Island. After a class, Capricorns can relax with a message.

Aquarius – More on the quiet and shy side, those of the Aquarius sign are deep and intellectual thinkers. They will find joy in a nature tour around Mount Desert Island through The Natural History Center. The center offers nature and bird tours throughout Acadia National Park and Down East Maine.
