Hello and welcome to Acadia by Carriage and Wildwood Stables in Acadia National Park

We are the new concessioner for the 2024 season. We will be open from Saturday May 25th through Wednesday October 16th, 2024 providing carriage tours, stall rentals and equestrian camping.

All of our carriage tours depart from Wildwood Stables, just off the Park Loop Road. The Island Explorer Bus (4 Loop Road) stops at Wildwood.

While we don’t offer horseback riding, we would be more than happy to get you and your family on a carriage tour.

Our Carriage Tour reservation system is now online, but it’s a new system so please get in touch if you have any issues making your reservation. Email us at [email protected] or call us at (207) 600-7204.
