FALL FOLIAGE IN NORTHERN VERMONT
Branching out from the renowned and storybook Stowe region of Northern Vermont, our fall foliage tours typically take place between the last week of September and third week of October, with a peak during the first two weeks of October. Of course, the season varies each year based on fall temperatures and precipitation, so we’ll keep a close eye on the trends as the fall approaches. From picture-perfect, 200-year-old Stowe village, our Northern Vermont vacations will wind up Smuggler’s Notch through the Green Mountains below Mount Mansfield (Vermont’s highest peak) in search of the best vantage points. As the season progresses, the riotous colors bloom from north to south, from the highest elevations to the lowest, and our expert foliage team knows how to maximize your leaf-peeping opportunities.
WHAT WE REVEAL
Our Northern Vermont vacations are designed to get you into the woods and away from the crowds. We’ll embark on private driving tours on smaller country roads to the best uncrowded sites for foliage viewing and photographs, past historic barns, working farms and quiet town greens. There will be ample opportunities to taste the bounty of the harvest season when we stop at local, family-owned orchards where apples, pears, pumpkins and aged cheeses tempt your taste buds. There’s little more satisfying after a morning in the chill autumn air than a steaming mug of freshly pressed, hot apple cider. You might opt to mountain bike through all that color in Cady Hill Forest, or take the leisurely gondola to the top of Mount Mansfield for a stunning panorama of three states and Canada from the ridgeline. Our experienced local guides can arrange for wine and beer tastings, make reservations during Stowe’s October “Restaurant Week,” and suggest the most indulgent spa treatments at Stowe Mountain Lodge to warm you up after a day of exploration. Rest assured, you’ll come away having had that longed-for Vermont fall foliage experience – and the vibrant photographs to show for it!
