New England - New Scotland
Green Mountains - White Mountains - Nova Scotia

Do you love mountain riding? How about mountain roads that run along the Atlantic ocean? Can you imagine yourself leaning your bike into the curves on a road that leads up into the clouds on one day and along ocean cliffs on the next?

"I have traveled around the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes, the Alps and the Highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton out rivals them all."

- Alexander Graham Bell

"The tour was well organized with the routes carefully planned with beautiful scenic views and invigorating roads that were a pleasure for a touring motorcyclist... top-notch accommodations and truly unique culinary experiences..."

- Jeff and Ginny Woodell of Colorado Springs, Colorado

Combine the alpine roads of the Best of the Mountains tour with the alpine-maritime roads of the Cabot Trail tour and you have New England - New Scotland. On this, our most challenging tour, you'll experience the best mountain roads in New England and the best mountain and maritime riding in New Scotland, or Nova Scotia. You'll experience the dramatic notches and gaps of the Green and White Mountains before riding to the top of Mount Washington. Crossing the White Mountains of Maine, you'll arrive in Bar Harbor and have a day to explore Acadia National Park.

The next morning, you'll travel by ferry to Nova Scotia to enjoy beautiful roads along the ocean, exceptional historical sights and the famed Cabot Trail. Clinging to the cliffs of Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the trail twists and turns along the edge of the Atlantic ocean and through the mountains, providing spectacular views for more than 200 miles. Go to the Cabot Trail tour page for a full description of the Nova Scotia section of this tour.
Accommodation and dining throughout the tour are first rate. Our attention to detail in this aspect of touring has become an NMT trademark. See our "Rider Feedback" and "Lodging" pages for more information. After each day of superb riding and spectacular views you'll sit down to a gourmet dinner, with full range of the menu, and luxurious accommodation.
The fifteen-night New England - New Scotland tours includes a two-night stay in the Green Mountains, a two-night stay in the White Mountains, a two-night stay near Acadia National Park and a four-night stay on Cape Breton. By design, there are never more than three consecutive days on the tour which require riding point-to-point. The July tour begins in Dover, Vermont and ends in Bar Harbor, Maine.
