Top 10 Places To See Autumn Colours

Top 10 Places To See Autumn Colours

Summer may be a distant memory but Autumn is a beautiful season to go explore the great outdoors and enjoy the seasonal natural beauty. 

Here are a few of our favourite places to go and see beautiful Autumn/ Fall colours.

But we can’t be everywhere, so we have added a few great suggestions, from across the world from the National Geographic.

Our Top 5 Autumn Favourite Places

  1. Loire Valley, France
    A great place to visit in autumn, as the crowds have disappeared. Not only can you see gorgeous leaves change colours for fall, but you can see them against a backdrop of elegant châteaux.

  2. Blackheath, New South Wales, Australia
    Take a drive through the rows of spectacular tall autumn trees that can be found in the back streets of this Blue Mountains town. Blackheath is two towns past Katoomba, going up the mountain. Vintage style antique stores and cafes also make this beautiful town a worthy visit.
  3. New Hampshire, White Mountains, USA
    The Kancamungus Highway in New Hampshire, New England is one of the best places in the world to take a scenic drive and view spectacular “fall colors”. So whether you’re visiting or live there, get out, live free and drive!
  4. Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, England
    Explore Robin Hood’s old haunt this autumn. Sherwood Forest has over over 20 miles of golden colour to take in. Once Navmii gets you there, you will see the beautiful contrasts as you walk or cycle through the forest.

  5. St Petersburg Russia
    Beautiful all year round but especially in the autumn/ fall. Colourful leaf-seekers don’t have to leave the city limits to see some of the brightest colours in Russia. Take a stroll around The Summer Garden.

Top 5 National Geographic Autumn Suggestions

1 Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada
Along coastal Quebec, maple leaves turn vivid reds, reminiscent of the leaf on Canada’s flag.

2 Kyoto, Japan
In Japan, the leaf-viewing tradition—called koyo—mirrors its spring cherry blossom customs. One of the best spots for koyo is in Kyoto.

3 Bavaria, Germany
Southern Germany is saturated with Alpine forests that pop with colour against snow-dusted mountains. Meander along the 224-mile (360 km) Romantic Road, beginning in the Franconia wine region.

4 Sonoma County, California
With leaves on both tree and vine, fall foliage is doubly intense in Sonoma County. Drive through Sonoma Valley along Arnold Drive, lined with multicolored canopies of oak and maple.

5 Northern New Mexico
Drive the 83-mile (134 km) Enchanted Circle stretching from Taos to Red River, a diverse and scenic landscape of verdant valleys, cottonwood forests and aspen-rimmed mountain lakes.
