Every autumn Vermont goes through a magical and stunning transformation. With a combination of sun and clouds, the deciduous tree-laden mountain slopes and valleys explode in a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors: deep reds, bright oranges and melancholy yellows. As we hike, sightsee and learn about one of New England’s most spectacular fall color destinations, we discover a bucolic landscape of charming mountain farms; towering, ancient mountains; rushing creeks and rivers; maple forests and more.
Our daily hikes take us to the highest points in the Green Mountains and across the Long Trail for spectacular 360-degree views. We also hike to wonderful waterfalls and across bucolic farm country that perfectly captures the magic of iconic, rural Vermont. Between hikes we visit covered bridges, a maple farm, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory, the classic mountain town of Stowe, and other autumn-themed New England highlights. This hiking tour features the best of Vermont at the very best time of year!
