    • Coastal and Seaside Bike Tour

      Uncover the coastal treasures of picturesque Portsmouth as you ride the Atlantic coastline from Rye State Harbor to Prescott Park, taking in the Isle of Shoals, Wentworth by the Sea, New Castle Island, Fort Stark, and Great Island Common. Abundant blissful vistas unfurl before your handlebars as you listen to insightful commentary on New Hampshire’s coastal heritage from your friendly guide. With bike rental included, enjoying a beautiful coastal day tour in Portsmouth couldn’t be easier!

      Your blissful bicycle tour begins with a leisurely ride along the Atlantic Coast as you follow the picturesque Portsmouth coastline to Rye State Harbor. Here, you’ll be afforded an idyllic vista of the Isle of Shoals, the lighthouses of Portsmouth, and the opportunity to hear the fascinating tale of Captain John Smith’s voyage to this region in 1614.

      At Rye Harbor, make an opportunistic stop for photos over the beautiful beaches and learn of Portsmouth’s rich fishmongering heritage and the arrival of settlers to these shores in the early 1600s.

      Cycling onwards along the southern coastline, you’ll be awe-struck by the scale and grandeur of the attractive mansions and private villas that grace this affluent part of Portsmouth.

      The intercoastal route will then see you riding north past expansive marshes and tranquil lily ponds as you glide by Wentworth by the Sea and arrive on New Castle Island. Follow your guide to the impressive Fort Stark for an intriguing opportunity to hear how New Hampshire got its motto - “Live Free or Die”.

      Then, your day tour winds its way to the gorgeous Great Island Common for more fabulous photo opportunities of the Isle of Shoals and Portsmouth’s picturesque lighthouses before you grab another life-giving slice of nature at Prescott Park. As with all places in Portsmouth, Prescott Park has its own tale of evolution and renewal, and this story brings your seaside tour of this nautical New Hampshire town to a fascinating close.
