Holidays In Vermont

Vermont is, without doubt, one of the prettiest states in America. The red barns, hills, white-steepled churches, village greens and twisting country roads you’ll find throughout Vermont represent ‘traditional America’.

It is not surprising that British visitors love this state, named after its hilly spine, the Green Mountains (‘verts monts’ in French). Below the peaks of these majestic mountains, you’ll find friendly little towns and cozy country inns where you’re guaranteed the best in hospitality.

Top Tips

"So much of New England is about food! Try a tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream made in Vermont."

"Enjoy a summer boat ride aboard The Spirit of Ethan Allen or a lunch cruise on the Northern Lights cruise ship on the 125-mile long Lake Champlain."

Did you know?

Vermont is a state that is best enjoyed outdoors. Although it’s the only New England state that doesn’t have a sea shore, its border with Lake Champlain more than compensates. The largest city in the state, Burlington, sits on the lake and affords magnificent views of the water as well as offering many sporting and recreation opportunities.

In the spring the maples are tapped for their famous maple syrup which is second to none and with the natural progression of nature and the seasons, it follows that its hillsides are ablaze with brilliant colours in the autumn. The Green Mountains offer some fabulous skiing opportunities in the winter too.

Hiking & Biking in Vermont


You will find many beautiful walks and hikes for all abilities in Vermont’s Green Mountains, Lake Champlain Islands, and throughout the state’s towns. We highly recommend the Trails at the Southern Vermont Arts Centre in Manchester. This loop trail leads to many hikes. You may follow the loop to Equinox Pond for a relaxing afternoon, or make the day of it and hike to the summit of Equinox Mountain, to enjoy panoramic views of Manchester and the surrounding area.


Vermont offers plenty of biking for people of all ages and abilities. Vermont has biking trails, some on old rail trails, biking tours, bike rentals, and gear and equipment. Biking can be a great fun family holiday with the kids. Why not try the South Burlington Recreation Path in Burlington. This path provides bicyclists with a new and exciting way to experience the beauty of Vermont. The trail takes bikers all over the city, through neighbourhoods and commercial districts, to corn fields and the banks of beautiful Lake Champlain.

Vermont's Gardens and Museums


Gardens sprout in the most wonderful Vermont places, like at quaint villages, lavish resorts, historic homes, farms, along bike trails, and wherever there is a good piece of earth. Gardens add color, magic, and beauty to scenic grounds and surrounding areas throughout the mountains and by cool waters. They’re dressed with gazebos, trellises, fountains, and reflecting pools, and filled with flowers, trees, shrubs, fruits and vegetables of every kind, perennials and annuals, heirlooms and exotics. Enjoy trails through meadows, fields, and woodlands full of wildflowers. There’s even a path that tells the story of the great circle of life.


Vermont’s museums captivate with beauty, storytelling, unique exhibits and history. From paintings by European and American masters to folk art and contemporary sculpture, you’ll find it all. History museums tell the stories of innovative and passionate Vermonters making significant contributions to the industry, nation-building, and human rights, while science centers explore topics ranging from sustainable farming to the rumors of Lake Champlain’s sea serpent Champ.

Vermont's Covered Bridges

The covered bridges of the Green Mountains star on postcards, on social media, and in stories about the state for a reason – they’re beautiful, historic, and unique. Vermont is home to more than 100 covered bridges, boasting more covered bridges per square mile than any other U.S. state.
The bridges date from 1820 (the original Pulp Mill Bridge across Otter Creek in Middlebury), with most constructed during the mid and late 19th Century. Among them is the Windsor Cornish Covered Bridge that spans the Connecticut River between Windsor, Vermont, and Cornish, New Hampshire. At 465 feet, it is the longest two-span covered bridge in the world and the longest wooden bridge in the United States. Vermont’s covered bridges are the settings for ghost stories, weddings, peaceful drives, some of our most beautiful photography, and memories that will last a lifetime.
