Hiking through forested mountains, visiting dairy and maple syrup farms, and exploring pretty New England towns in the Green Mountain State.
In Vermont, the seasons are tangible, whether it’s the blazing foliage and apple-harvesting festivals of autumn, the exuberant greens of summer, or the blossoming, chirping landscape of spring, when sugarhouses are running full-tilt to produce much of the USA’s maple syrup. Our specialists have visited in spring, summer and fall and can craft a trip to Vermont around your interests.
You’ll find wooded valleys dotted with red barns, wooden bridges and dairy farms. Sprawling national parks encompass mountains and forests woven with hiking trails. And quintessential New England towns like Manchester, Burlington and Stockbridge, where you can stay in intimate B&Bs and stroll leafy streets, pausing at museums, galleries and historic buildings.
The state is a haven for food and drink lovers, with a thriving craft beer scene and farmers markets laden with cheeses and freshly picked fruit and vegetables. Base yourself in Woodstock to visit nearby family-run farms, where you can watch cheese- and maple syrup-making in action.
Using their first-hand experience, our specialists can recommend the best ways to take in the state’s changing scenery. You could drive the Scenic 100 route, which stretches the length of the state. Cruise Lake Champlain’s glistening water while hearing about the region’s history. Or walk among maple and hemlock trees in the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes national forests.
