Come see us on Campobello!
Our van is picking you up at any place on Campobello and Lubec. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.
Our "Step-on Guide Service" has been popular for bus groups as well as private tours and we continue offering this great way to see Campobello in 2019. Our guide will meet you at any location on Campobello Island and you will enjoy all sights and hear about our rich history. All standard tours will last about 3hrs. If you are in a Motor coach or are a motor coach operator, your tour will be shorter as coaches cannot access the Natural area of the Roosevelt Park.
Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes.
Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.
(Eastern Time+1hr.)
For reservations please call or email a day prior to your intended visit. Any later attempt to make a reservation may go unsuccessful as we might be on a tour just when you call.
Thanks for visiting and be welcome to the island.

March Sun

We are approaching the best time of the year – SPRING! Even though we might get another snow shower or two, all snow is gone for now. Days are bright and sunny and once in a while we see a US car license from somewhere farther south.

The sun is tempting us to walk out into nature and we do a walk through the forest. Lake Glensevern is free of ice, possibly due to a little salt in the water after the last storm.

The trail is mostly dry, Molly enjoys to sniff up familiar and unfamiliar smells along the trail. The birch trees are shedding their outer layer of bark and like fur on a deer it hangs from the trees. I have a plastic bag and gather birch bark. I use it to start my morning fires in the stove.

Birch bark burns like gas and produces a lot of heat. It never fails.
We come to an intersection. From here to the left it isn’t far to Gibraltar Rock. No monkeys there so we are heading straight on. We are on the original carriage trail which led the Roosevelts and other summer residents to the lake and via a long-gone bridge across the lake to the ocean beach.

The trail has deep ruts. Are they from the carriages? I am not sure, but this is historic ground on Campobello.

My plastic bag is filling quickly. There is much more bark than we can get with us today. What a wonderful natural forest.

Take a little trip to the beach and have a look at how the last storm surge changed the sand deposits.

On our way home we drop by the grocer and Bea gets some chocolate cookies for coffee.

Love those sunny pre-spring days!
