If you didn’t get around to treating yourself to a vacation this Summer, don’t fret! The Fall is still a fantastic time to go on a trip, and here are the best places to do it.

Fall is an underrated vacation season. People often assume that just because Summer is officially over, they’ll have to wait a year to travel again. But there are plenty of amazing places around the world that are at their most beautiful during the Fall. Not to mention you can save a few bucks as flights and hotels are often cheaper this time of year.

That’s why we talked to our experts here at Jetlaggin and compiled this list of the best places to go on vacation this fall. So stop hibernating already and get out there and travel your little heart out!

ICELAND

Iceland has quickly become one of the most popular vacation destinations among Americans. For one; it can be very cheap. But more importantly; it’s one of the most beautiful countries in the world. And the Fall is a great time to visit as the great city of Reykjavik hosts their annual Reykjavik International Film Festival. It lasts 11 days and showcases films and documentaries from over 50 countries.

And if you’re not much of a film buff, the Fall is still a great time to check out Iceland as you’re likely to catch the always breathtaking Northern Lights.

MOROCCO

Obviously, the fascinating city of Marrakesh is a huge draw when it comes to visiting Morocco and definitely worth your time. But outside of Marrakesh, the Fall season in Morocco is amazing as the days are longer and brighter, and you can take in the hot desert valleys on one side of the Atlas Mountains, and the snow-covered peaks on the other side.

And if you’re one that enjoys both history and luxury, then be sure to stay at the fabulous La Sultana hotel in Medina.

ARGENTINA

Why is the Fall a great time to visit Argentina? Well, because our Fall season is technically their Spring season! Meaning warmer temperatures, more colorful foliage, and smaller crowds. What other reason do you need?!

Oh, you still need other reasons? Well, how about the fact that the U.S. dollar currently goes farther than ever in Argentina and whale watching conditions are never better in the country as southern right whales are migrating this time of year? Yeah. That’s what I thought.

NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand is an amazing and beautiful country, but more specifically, in the Fall, Hawke’s Bay is definitely worth checking out. Every year they put on the Food and Wine Classic, which features some of the best wine and most delicious food the country has to offer. Don’t mind if I do!

COLORADO

No matter what time of year, Colorado is easily one of the most beautiful states in the country. But in the Fall it really shines. It’s truly perfect for anyone that loves hiking, biking, camping, and nature in general. And the crowds are generally smaller everywhere you go as Summer is over and the Winter ski season has yet to kick into high gear.

If you’re looking for specific recommendations, Telluride is the hidden gem of Colorado. A vibrant and energetic city with good food, a happening nightlife, but still that small mountain town vibe.

BHUTAN

Bhutan is definitely a tricky one when it comes to vacations. The Summers can be brutally hot and the Winters equally brutal, just on the freezing cold side. That’s why the Fall is the best time to see this incredible place! It’s also when the Bhutanese Tschechu Festival takes place every year where visitors can take place in the annual meditation sessions and spiritual blessings that happen at the various temples.

So if you’re looking to find a little piece of mind this Fall, Bhutan is the place for you.

TUSCANY

I mean… any time is a good time to visit Italy. But in the Fall, Tuscany is especially wonderful as the leaves create an incredible pallet of different colors on the horizon. Plus it’s a great time of year to go truffle hunting for all you truffle lovers out there.

Just north of Palm Springs and surrounded by the San Gorgonio Wilderness this is one desert destination that you will want to add to your bucket list.

The canyon, an important wildlife corridor between the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains, has a robust wildlife population. 

 

 

This desert oasis is a perfect place for a nature adventure, whether by yourself or with the family.

About sixty miles east of Krakow, Poland is the ancient village of Zalipie, one of the country’s top tourist attractions, and the prettiest little town you will ever see. The small wooden cottages of this charming village are painted with scenes of nature and local folklore. Considered one of the most picturesque villages in Poland, Zalipie is surprisingly not overrun by tourists.  

 

The tradition started more than a century ago when the female residents began to paint their homes with floral motifs to cover up soot smudges and other faults around their home. Not having access to the materials needed for the project, these ingenious women made their own equipment. The paint was made with the fat from the dumplings they cooked, and hair from the tail of their cows was used for brushes. The women had to repaint their cottages each year, they did this after the Feast of Corpus Christi when they weren’t as busy with the farm work. This unique habit was passed down from one generation to another, and is continued to this day. One woman in particular became obsessed with the tradition. Felicja Curylowa lived from 1904 to 1974, she decorated every surface of her cottage inside and out. After her death the beautiful house was turned into a museum. 

 

Zalipie is a massive painting full of color and history, the entire village is painted. The best time to visit is in the spring when they hold their Painted Cottage Competition. This competition started after the end of World War II in an attempt to cover up the damage done by the war. Visiting this quaint village is a great way to escape the busy life of large cities, to relax and simply enjoy the art. It’s a delight you must see for yourself.
