Maine Public Travel

Welcome to Maine Public Travel!

Maine Public Travel specializes in small groups, enriching cultural travel to classic and unique destinations. Our philosophy is to create trips that let you explore beneath the surface of a country to discover the real people, places and cultures. Like any story you hear from NPR or on Maine Public Radio, we deep dive into each region we visit with seminars with leading educators and regional experts, visiting museums and backstage tours and classical concerts, while taking in as many of an area’s historical and cultural landmarks as possible.

Maine Public's cultural travel program explored Iceland in June of 2018. Nearly 30 friends and supporters from across Maine traveled to Reykjavik with Jennifer Rooks, host of Maine Calling, and CEO Mark Vogelzang during the longest day and week of the year.

Maine Public's first cultural travel program explored Havana in March of 2017. Maine Public's CEO Mark Vogelzang and nearly 20 Mainers experienced Cuba together at a particularly exciting time as the U.S. had re-opened its embassy and cultural travel for Americans, and as the Cuban government and institutions were changing in response to the freedom of the Internet and the exit of their revolutionary heroes, Fidel and Raul Castro.
