Bright yellow, red and orange tones create an incredible atmosphere and offer tourists the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of autumn in all its splendor.


In addition to the enchanting autumn colors, Europe is famous for its cultural heritage, architectural masterpieces and cozy towns that are always ready to welcome travelers. And it's this combination of extraordinary natural beauty and cultural heritage that makes fall travel to Europe unbeatable.


Here are 5 most picturesque countries in Europe, where the autumn landscape becomes the best backdrop for your vacation and photos, and every moment becomes a masterpiece of nature and culture.


Lapland, Finland


When nature begins its majestic dressing up in the most magical clothes of autumn, and forests with shades of gold, red and orange bloom on the horizons, Finnish Lapland becomes a real fairy tale for tourists. 


This fascinating region not only offers the most vivid autumnal experience, but also opens the door to the wonderful world of the northern lights, making the trip a double adventure. 


Lapland is known for its ideal geographical location for observing the northern lights in the fall and spring. It is here that you can most often see this phenomenon in all of Europe.


The best way to enjoy the natural beauty of Lapland in the fall is to visit Oulanka National Park. This park, located in the southeast of Lapland, impresses with its diversity of natural landscapes. 


In the fall, you can also go on a cycling tour, play golf on the course, or even try your hand at rafting on mountain rivers.


After your outdoor adventures, don't forget to relax in one of the many Finnish saunas. This is an absolutely essential part of the Finnish lifestyle that will help you rejuvenate and relax. You should also try the traditional Finnish cuisine, especially salmon dishes.




Loire Valley, France


The Loire Valley in France is a real symphonic union of vineyards, historic castles and cozy towns that bloom with bright colors in the fall. 


The Loire not only invites you on a culinary journey for delicious wines, but also arranges a real feast for the eyes with its enchanting autumn leaves and huge French castles.


The Loire Valley becomes extraordinary in the fall, when the vines that cover the country are dressed in a palette of red, purple and orange colors. Leading wineries in the region open their doors for wine tasting and French velvet, giving gourmets and wine lovers a real treat. 


The Loire is also famous for its picturesque French castles, which become even more enchanting in autumnal attire. The palaces and fortresses where kings and nobles once lived are now open to visitors. A walk along the Loire River's horizon, amidst dense forests and lush foliage, makes your trip back in time even more magical.

This region offers the perfect combination of outdoor adventures, visiting historical sites and enjoying local cuisine. 


The picturesque Močar Forest, one of the oldest forests in the world, provides you with the perfect opportunity for fall walks and immersion in nature.


In addition to nature, Transylvania is famous for its diverse architecture, including many ancient castles and picturesque mountain villages. Sibiu and Brasov are cozy cities that have their own charm and impress with their cultural heritage.


However, one of the most popular places for an autumn vacation in Transylvania is the Retezat National Park. Here you can stay in a rustic cottage and enjoy the tranquility of nature while discovering amazing mountain scenery and exceptional autumn colors.

Perthshire, Scotland


Perthshire is located in the heart of Scotland, a region famous for the tallest hedge in the world, and a trip here in the fall is guaranteed to leave an unforgettable experience. This county offers an unrivaled experience for nature lovers and art lovers. 


What used to be a high green wall becomes a beautiful tapestry of red, yellow and green in the fall. The combination of bright autumn colors and extraordinary height creates an amazing view that fascinates everyone who is lucky enough to visit.


However, the beauty of Perthshire is not limited to the hedges - one of the main art venues for the autumn color show is the famous Hermitage Park.
