    7 Best Fall Vacations

    With the end of summer on the horizon, don’t get discouraged by the chill in the air as the autumn season rolls in. It’s easy to hunker down in the fall and prepare for the winter season ahead. Instead, put off dragging your sweaters out of storage and opt-in for a fall vacation! Autumn travel offers pleasant weather and the joys of shoulder season with lower prices and far fewer crowds. Here are the destinations on the top of our list to visit this fall:<br><br><b>The Canadian Rockies</b><br><br>Experience the solitude of the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/canada-tours/" target="_blank">Canadian Rockies</a> away from the crowds and bask in the glory that is the autumn color painted throughout Lake Louise, the Sunwapta River, and Mount Victoria. The Canadian Rockies is teeming with wildlife—whether it be moose, elk, bears, or bighorn sheep—experience the exceptional flora and fauna through the lens of local guides and view the spectacular wildlife at the peak of their activity. Some say that hiking the spectacular gorges, marveling at the rushing waterfalls, and enjoying the snow-capped peaks is even more breathtaking in the dim fall light.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/canada-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUvZ" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>France</b><br><br>In reality, there is no wrong time to explore <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/normandy/" target="_blank">Normandy</a>, Burgundy or the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/london-and-paris-family-vacation/" target="_blank">City of Light</a>, But we think the fall just may be France&#39;s best season. Bask in the joys of Paris as the city&#39;s parks turn to hues of orange, yellow, and bright red. Admire the Jardin de Luxembourg and <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/london-and-paris-family-vacation/" target="_blank">Palace of Versailles</a> resembling the color and brilliance of an Impressionist painting, giving Claude Monet a run for his money. <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/loire/" target="_blank">Burgundy</a> is the perfect blend of classic French villages and rolling terrain with a patchwork of forests and harvesting vineyards that are utter perfection in the fall. Finally, enjoy the classic Norman picture-book villages, the stunning<a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/normandy/" target="_blank"> Mont-St-Michel</a>, and Normandy&#39;s massive apple orchards that thrive at this time of the year. There is no better time to explore France than August through November!  <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/london-and-paris-family-vacation/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUpR" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Greek Isles </b><br><br>Autumn in <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/greece/" target="_blank">Greece</a> is heavenly—with balmy weather, warm water, and harvests of olives and grapes—you’re guaranteed a lovely time without the often-overwhelming crowds of summertime travel. Explore the remarkable ruins of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/greece/" target="_blank">Knossos and Delos</a>, sample the fruits of cliff-hugging vineyards, and take in the iconic views from your hotel in Santorini all complete with a warm autumn glow that accentuates the charm of the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/greece/" target="_blank">Greek isles</a>. Shoulder season gives you a chance to intimately engage with the local culture and meet the phyllo bakers, olive growers, archeologists, and villagers who live amid some of the loveliest scenery and finest historical treasures on earth. <br><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/greece/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUve" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Italy </b><br><br>In the fall, Italy presents the opportunity to enjoy the colorful countrysides of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/tuscany-tours/" target="_blank">Tuscany</a>, relish in the local markets spilling over with fresh produce in the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/amalfi-tours/" target="_blank">Amalfi Coast</a>, and take advantage of the pleasant weather in <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/sardinia/" target="_blank">Sardinia &amp; Corsica</a>. Skip the usual cathedral-and-cappuccino circuit in the crowds and heat of the summer and visit Italy in the autumn to properly savor the local culture, cuisine, and charisma. September through October is the typical time for the grape harvest in the wine region and towns in Tuscany celebrate the production of wine with festivals galore! Partake in the joys of the harvest season and celebrate with a glass of wine form a <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/tuscany-tours/" target="_blank">local winery</a>!<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/tuscany-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUp7" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Bryce, Grand Canyon, Zion </b><br><br>Even as adults we play the pioneer game every time we visit this monumental trio of national parks. Imagine cresting the hills in your Conestoga wagon to behold the sights and breathtaking views <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/bryce-tours/" target="_blank">Bryce, the Grand Canyon, and Zion</a> have to offer. Deep canyons, brilliant red rock, bridges of stone, and boulders poised on slender spires amaze visitors year-round. However, the fall provides visitors with pleasant weather, far fewer crowds, great chances to spot wildlife, and <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/bryce-tours/" target="_blank">colorful leaves that sprinkle Zion’s canyon floors</a> and winding trails in late September and early October.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/bryce-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUpC" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Charleston &amp; Savannah</b><br><br>The coastal south is brimming with a distinctive meld of history, way of life, and charm that is all the more enjoyable as the autumn season graces <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/charleston/" target="_blank">Charleston and Savannah</a> with clear blue skies, sunshine, and nice cool breezes. There&#39;s no other region in America with such a distinctive meld of history, climate, and way of life! Walk through moss-draped lanes, admire the fine restorations of prosperous homes, visit some of the country’s most unique <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/charleston/" target="_blank">living history museums</a>, and stroll the old city streets under the shade of curvaceous oak trees.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/charleston/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUpH" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><b>Galápagos</b><br><br>Autumn in the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/galapagos-tours/" target="_blank">Galápagos</a> is a special time in the archipelago. In September, the Antarctic Humboldt current is strong—bringing hoards of wildlife to the scene. Escape the fall weather at home and get the chance to admire penguins, sea lions, and marine birds at the peak of their activity! The beginning of fall is also a prime opportunity to see <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/galapagos-tours/" target="_blank">humpback whales and their calves migrating</a>, fur seals mating, dolphins playing in the cool water, and giant tortoises laying eggs on the white sandy beaches.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/galapagos-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vxkU&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zUpM" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br>Autumn is just around the corner and it truly is the perfect time to explore some of our favorite destinations.

    Quick Trips to Fit Your Busy Schedule

    It’s hard to argue with the dream of a lazy month in <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/amalfi-tours/" target="_blank">Amalfi</a>. How could a two-week safari in <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/south-africa-tours/" target="_blank">South Africa</a> not have a certain appeal? When the stars align, an extended junket to India or New Zealand is the only way to go. But if your calendar is crowded, those windows of opportunity are as rare as a blue-footed booby dancing on your shoulder. You have plenty of vacation time; you just don’t have time to take a vacation. There’s your cousin’s wedding smack in the middle of June. Soccer tournaments, board meetings, holidays, jam-packed school years, the busy season when your boss frowns at PTO requests. Clearly, it’s time for a <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/quick-trips/" target="_blank">Quick Trip with Classic Journeys!</a><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/quick-trips/" target="_blank">The Quick Trip formula</a> is elegantly simple, and it comes from years of working with time-starved travelers—folks who are hungry for amazing experiences but who have to fit them into six days or less. Every Quick Trip is a no-compromises Classic Journeys’ vacation, hand-crafted to deliver immersive activities and cultural interactions in the company of full-time local guides. Award-winning luxury hotels and great food go without saying. In short, they’re fabulous vacations that don’t feel short at all.

The same holds true for <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/cuba/" target="_blank">Cuba</a>, where it’s super easy to pull off a satisfying four-day weekend in Havana. The even bigger surprise is just how close some hot-ticket destinations—Iceland, the Galápagos and even Morocco are from major U.S. gateway cities. So instead of defaulting to a lowest-common-denominator trip when time is tight, you can spread your wings and enjoy the trip of a lifetime.<br><br>If you’ve given up fitting a vacation into that calendar of yours, think again. Or if you’re lucky enough to already have longer getaways planned but wish you could squeeze in just one more, a <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/quick-trips/" target="_blank">Quick Trip</a> is the fast and easy solution.<br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/iceland-guided-walking-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vy4y&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zYIu" style="height: 354px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/iceland-guided-walking-tours/" target="_blank"><b>Iceland Escape</b></a><br>5 days/4 nights<br>Wild, weird and wonderful Iceland is crazy close. All you need are five well-choreographed days with our local descended-from-Vikings guides. Walk on lava fields, spot puffins and whales, walk along a glacial lake to the face of a glacier, and eat hearty with a local family for a totally authentic look at Icelandic life. <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/galapagos-islands-adventure-tours/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vy4y&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zYJ4" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/galapagos-islands-adventure-tours/" target="_blank"><b>Galápagos Getaway</b></a><br>5 days/4 nights<br>Due south of New Orleans, the Galápagos Islands are way closer to civilization than most people realize. Five days there with the best guides is abundant time to spot the Big Five animals. And this island-based trip includes snorkeling, kayaking, walking on a volcano rim, sipping coffee at a plantation, and so much more! <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/morocco-luxury-tour-package/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vy4y&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zYJ9" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/morocco-luxury-tour-package/" target="_blank"><b>Morocco: Essaouira to Marrakesh</b></a><br>6 days/5 nights<br>Process this: Casablanca is closer to most American gateway cities than Rome.

Exotic is easy in the extreme! <br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/cuba-havana-art-music/" target="_blank"><img alt="User-added image" src="/servlet/rtaImage?eid=a2Y1T000001vy4y&amp;feoid=00N50000008QRzC&amp;refid=0EM1T000000zYJT" style="height: 355px; width: 500px;"></img></a><br><br><a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/cuba-havana-art-music/" target="_blank"><b>A Long Weekend in Havana</b></a><br>4 days/3 nights<br>Before the Revolution, Americans hopped down to Havana for the weekend.

    <br>Ready to escape on a romantic getaway? Just imagine… you and your sweetheart watching the sunset over the red sand dunes of the <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/morocco/" target="_blank">Sahara</a>, sipping a glass of Bordeaux in the vineyards of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/bordeaux/" target="_blank">Bordeaux </a>itself, or following a scenic waterside path to the famed coastal resort of <a href="https://www.classicjourneys.com/tuscany/" target="_blank">Portofino</a>.
