OUR STORY

Guided Maine was born out of a profound love for the rugged beauty of Maine and a deep-seated passion for outdoor adventure. The founders, driven by their roles as passionate Maine guides, recognized an opportunity to share their connection to the state’s magnificent landscapes with others. Their desire to impart the essence of Maine’s outdoors, educate the new generation about the wonders of nature, and raise awareness about the unique profession of a Maine Guide inspired the creation of Guided Maine. With a commitment to authenticity and a genuine love for the wilderness, the business aims to not only guide you through the breathtaking landscapes of Maine but also to foster an appreciation for the natural world. Guided Maine is not just a business; it’s a journey of discovery, education, and adventure led by individuals dedicated to showcasing the heart and soul of Maine’s great outdoors.
