It’s winter activity season and Maine is the outdoor adventure center for all things snow. We’re the hotspot for hiking and water sports in the warmer months, and we have terrain for skiing, sledding, snowshoeing and more throughout the winter.

There’s a reason our state is filled with outdoor enthusiasts year-round.

Outdoor Activities in Maine

For the sake of simplicity, there is one farm in Maine that has almost every opportunity for winter activities. Pineland Farms in New Gloucester has beautiful walks that are perfect any time of the year, but even more so in the winter.

To make it even more enticing, they now have heated snow globes to warm up after a day of favorite winter activities.
