Hugging the continent’s rugged, spectacular north-eastern coast, New England calls to those who want to get close to America’s natural wonders. Pack the hiking shoes and a sense of adventure for a walk through sweeping forests and up soaring peaks. From Boston, travel through the ‘The Green Mountain State’ of Vermont, stocking up on tasty local produce on the way. Walk atop Presidents in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, then skirt the windy peninsulas and craggy shores of Maine’s Mid-Coast to unique Acadia National Park. A New England autumn offers one of the country’s most incredible natural sights: the changing colours of the trees sweeps northward, bringing blazing oranges, reds and yellow to create a awe-inspiring fiery landscape. The trails of New England await on this memorable hiking holiday.
