Why go on a Vermont Tour?

On a Vermont Tour, the Green Mountains that give Vermont its name are a sure stop (green mountains translate to verts monts in French) on any itinerary. In this mountain range, travellers have free time to explore the villages and nature trails, cruise on Lake Champlain, and sample their favourite flavour of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.  The capital city of Montpelier is a 200 year-old village with a European resort sensibility.  Visit the nearby maple syrup farm and the Cold Hollow Cider Mill, which produces fresh apple cider, to see how these products are made, sample them, and visit the shops and purchase some to save for later.  The city of Vergennes offers pleasing views of the Adirondack Mountains and the Green Mountains.  You may also visit Shelburne Heritage Park to discover the folk and fine art collections housed there.  In Vermont’s largest city of Burlington, built on a hillside, you may take a ferry-ride on Lake Champlain or enjoy the polished elegance of this serene landscape on land.  The Church Street Marketplace is a popular shopping destination of restored buildings, restaurants, and coffee houses. 

When is the best time to go?

Burlington’s average temperature is –9°C in January and 22°C in July.  Temperatures are generally cooler in the Green Mountains.  Vermont has some of New England’s best skiing and snowboarding areas.  Ski resorts get busy during winter weekends, but if you’re interested in winter sports, Vermont is the place to visit. Late September and October is the peak time to see mountains covered in colourful foliage.

The rural beauty manifesting in farmland and rivers creates a picture-perfect backdrop for relaxing travel and recreational activities on a Vermont Tour. Call or visit one of our travel agents for more information about Vermont.
