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!
Please Note: Vermont’s fall foliage typically occurs between the last week of September and mid October, but it is a natural process that varies year by year. We have done our very best to schedule the tour dates for the best chance to see the peak fall colors, but as with many things in nature there are no guarantees. Regardless of the stage of the fall foliage during your tour, it’s a stunningly beautiful area to hike and explore, and a magical season in which to be there.
