Welcome to Katahdin

Home to Mt. Katahdin, Maine’s highest peak, and Moosehead Lake, Maine’s largest lake, bigger certainly seems to be better in The Maine Highlands! Hike to the top or canoe your way across these natural wonders with the help of The Great Maine Woods and Waters Tours, offering an array of possibilities to roam the area’s natural beauty - watch for moose! Take time to explore the three-mile long wooded gorge Gulf Hagas, more commonly known as “The Grand Canyon of the East.” It’s fitting that an area known for these big wonders should also be home to one of the world’s biggest horror writers, Stephen King. Complete with wrought-iron bats and spider webs, his home office in Bangor is where he does much of his writing. The sky’s the limit in The Maine Highlands!
