Bar Harbor is a town on Mount Desert Island in Hancock County, Maine, United States. Step out of the city life by going to Sand Beach and Acadia National Park. Step out of Bar Harbor to go to Winter Harbor and see Schoodic Point, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cadillac Mountain, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and contemplate the waterfront views at Jordan Pond Path Trailhead.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Bar Harbor trip planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Bangor International Airport. In July in Bar Harbor, expect temperatures between 28°C during the day and 17°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
