Why go on a Kentucky Tour?

Start your Kentucky tour in Lexington, renowned as the “Heart of Bluegrass” and visit the Kentucky Horse Park. Have a look at the place where legends like Man o’ War and Secretariat conquered the racing world. Discover the site’s rich history and its peoples’ heartwarming stories. After, make your way to the Sinking Spring Farm, and learn about the production process behind the infamous Kentucky Bourbon.

Embrace the thrill of adventure as you c¬limb through Mammoth Cave National Park – the longest cave system on earth – which has around 300 miles of surveyed passageways, and marvel at the sight of its vast interior cathedrals and undulating rock formations. Stand beside Cumberland Falls, the only place in the Northern Hemisphere where you can regularly witness a moonbow. Head south and discover one of Kentucky’s true wonders, Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest. Enjoy its 14,000 acres of hiking trails, lakes, and visitor centres. Ultimately find peace as you connect with its scenic landscapes.

When is the best time to go?

The best time to go on a Kentucky tour is spring, when pastures are deep green, and flowers are in bloom. However, it is also during this time that the state is busiest as the Kentucky Derby Festival draws crowds from all places. To avoid the crowd, visit during fall. Travellers will definitely fall in love with the colourful foliage along the country lane, and admire the cool temperate atmosphere.

Summers tend to be humid and sunny, with temperatures averaging between 32C and 38C. Kentucky generally has mild winters, with a general average of -5C., although there is a tendency for ice storms around January and February.
