Home to some of the most stunning landscapes in New England, holidays in Vermont make the ideal getaway if you love the outdoors. Known for its rolling scenery and abundance of wildlife, not to mention its local maple syrup, discover why Vermont is such a well-loved holiday destination.

Discover some of the most fantastic scenery in the world, including the enormous freshwater Lake Champlain, bordering the USA and Canada, and the summer home of President Lincoln at Hildene. You can also explore the postcard-worthy 19th century village of Stowe, which is a hit with winter sports enthusiasts. Or why not venture to the absolutely charming Woodstock, famed for its old farms and authentic New England character?

Embrace nature on holiday in Vermont

Founded in the 1700s by the English and French and located on the northeastern coast of America, bordering Canada, Vermont offers numerous activities and sightseeing opportunities during your holidays, regardless of your age.

The 250 mile range of the Green Mountains boast lush farmland and forestry, as well as bears, moose and deer, and provide the perfect place for a day of hiking, mountain biking and nature spotting. At over 124 miles long and up to 122 metres deep, Lake Champlain is a much-loved spot for boating trips, winter ice fishing, swimming, or setting up camp for a night under the stars.

Known for its skiing, due to its close proximity to Mount Mansfield, Stowe is a delightful village to shop and eat in between all your sporting activities.

Woodstock is also worth a visit, and is famed for its art galleries, tempting dining spots and historic farms. While you’re in the region, you must sample the local Vermont cheese and maple syrup.

Vermont is popular with couples, families and groups looking for a memorable countryside escape. Why not extend your New England trip and visit nearby Montreal, in Canada, or Northern California? Our experts can plan the ideal multi-centre holiday in Vermont.
