Holiday overview

This one-week escorted tour with Insight Vacations, which coincides with the vibrant colours of New England’s spectacular ‘fall’ season, will take you from historic Boston’s museums and art galleries out into the region’s picturesque countryside. Here, you’ll drive through the rolling Berkshire Hills to the magnificent White Mountains, stop off at old world villages and artisanal working farms, and see the exclusive mansions of Kennebunkport on Maine’s Atlantic coast. You’ll also be looked after by highly experienced guides every step of the way, as well as enjoying chauffeur driven UK airport transfers either side of your trip.

Holiday itinerary

Day 1: UK/Boston

After a private door-to-door transfer in the UK, board your flight to Boston. You’ll be met on arrival and taken to your downtown hotel, perfectly located for an afternoon stroll around New England’s largest city. This evening, you’ll enjoy a welcome reception. 

Stay: The Hyatt Regency 

Day 2: Williamstown

Discover some of Boston’s most famous sights on a guided tour of the Freedom Trail before a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum, the largest and most significant collection of original Rockwell art. This afternoon you’ll head through the rolling Berkshire Hills to Williamstown, a picturesque college town.

Stay: The Orchards Hotel 

Day 3: Stowe

Leave Massachusetts and drive through the blushing reds and deep browns of Vermont’s autumn on the way to Stowe. You’ll stop off at the picturesque Quechee Gorge, tour a working dairy and farm life museum and visit the quintessential Vermont village, Woodstock. It was Stowe’s alpine setting that became home to the Von Trapp family of Sound of Music fame, following their escape from Nazi-occupied Austria.

Stay: The Trapp Family Lodge 

Day 4: Stowe

Sample cider and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream accompanied by views of Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s tallest peak. A three-course dinner is included on day three, where meals are paired with craft lagers from the lodge’s brewery.

Stay: The Trapp Family Lodge

Day 5: North Conway

In the morning, visit a maple syrup farm to get a taste of a Vermont’s favourite – ‘sugar on snow’ (a doughnut served with maple syrup and pickle). You’ll then take an aerial tramway over the White Mountains before driving through the dazzling crimson and orange hues of the famed Kancamagus Scenic Byway.

Stay: The White Mountain Hotel and Resort 

Day 6: North Conway

The next morning, you’ll enjoy an interpretive presentation on the area’s wildlife and ecology before visiting Silver Cascade Waterfall.

Leaving New Hampshire you’ll travel through the pine forests of western Maine on your way to Kennebunkport.

Bush. You’ll then continue to historic Portland where you’ll enjoy dinner in a local restaurant.
