Nature

Autumn holiday destinations offer an explosion of colour only nature can provide. From fire-tipped foliage to yellow fields and crunchy leaves perfect for rolling in, these top spots are pure, seasonal magic.

Kyoto, Japan

Possibly more cherished for the short-lived cherry blossoms in spring, Japan’s autumn foliage deserves to rank alongside them. Visit Kyoto, famous for Shinto shrines, traditional wooden houses and geisha, to see an explosion of colour covering the charming city. Some of the best spots include Tofuku-ii Temple, Ginkaku-ii Temple and the mountain village of Takao.

New England, USA

New England is world famous for its kaleidoscope of autumn colours. It’s the season for hiking, biking, road trips, apples and pumpkins! Drive Connecticut’s State Route 169 to discover charming towns, hike in Maine’s Acadia National Park or discover the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts. You can also stand on the summit of Mount Washington in New Hampshire, go vineyard-hopping in Rhode Island and take all the autumn pics you could wish for, in Vermont.

Paris, France

It’s hard to improve on Paris’s beauty, however thick carpets of golden leaves, fewer tourists and generally sunny weather seems to do so. It’s one of the best times to visit the gardens of Versailles and the Palais-Royal Gardens. Plus, you can sip on hot chocolate on an outdoor terrace, without fighting for a seat.

Ontario, Canada

Autumn sweeps over Ontario with a palette of eye-scorching reds, glowing yellows and blazing oranges. If you love hiking, birdwatching and outdoor adventures, this is the time to do it. The 1000 Islands region offers cruises along the banks of the St. Lawrence River, or climb the Skydeck Tower for a bird’s eye view. Jump on board the Agawa Canyon Tour Train to discover lakes, rivers and forests awash with gold in Algoma Country. For a city trip, check out Ottawa at the end of September for biking and kayaking.

Seoul, South Korea ...
