Lush forests and rugged mountains

New Hampshire is loved for its magnificent White Mountains - including Mount Washington, the highest mountain in the northeast. Enjoy its mountain vistas, blue lakes, luxury mountain resorts, scenic railroads and its small coastal towns. Lush forests cover New Hampshire and this creates a collage of colours throughout the seasons, but especially in autumn. 

What defines New Hampshire is not its outdoor activities (although it has that) nor its dizzying variety of landscapes (it has that, too). A holiday in New Hampshire is about intimate moments: the scent of the sea along the coast, the crunch of autumn leaves under your shoes, the smell of homemade apple pie at a cafe. We love moments spent at the many farmers markets, sampling maple syrup at Portsmouth Farmers Market and buying goat's milk soap at Bedford Farmers Market.
