Six autumn getaways to get lost in Europe’s nature

Slowly but steadily the leaves start falling, the pumpkins keep growing, the rain washes our windows and we start wearing our cozy sweaters again. Autumn is arriving and with the new season come new travel possibilities to enjoy the coziest month of the year. 

Read our top six recommendations for your next sustainable getaway this autumn. 

Central Apennines-Italy

Italy’s Big Five: Together with your nature guide, you will explore the Abruzzo national park’s wilderness, following the tracks of the large animals and learning how to correctly approach the wildlife. We focus our efforts on Marsican bears and wolves, while we will have good chances to see chamois, deer, and wild boar.

Deer mating: During the months of September and October, when the mating season of deer starts, the Central Apennines gives you the chance to live a very interesting experience. The bells and the fights among male deer for the conquest of female deer allow you to immerse yourself in the deepest nature of the Park. 

Greater Coa Valley-Portugal

Five days rewilding: In this experience you will learn how to track wolves, enjoy hikes around the private reserve of Faia Brava, and get to know the rich cultural and historical heritage of the Côa Valley. The accommodations are charming family-owned guesthouses in which you will feel like home sitting with a glass of some of Portugal’s finest wines and enjoying delicious local cuisine and a beautiful view.

Portugal Inside and Out: During this luxury safari, you will experience the dynamic mix of culture, cuisine, nature and local people, and it will have you coming back for more. Explore undiscovered regions of Portugal, vast natural areas and new exciting tourism experiences in the Coa Valley.

Oder Delta- Germany and Poland

Three-day luxury safari: Travel the Oder Delta in Germany at your own pace with  our professional nature guides. Two half-day excursions into nature give you the best chance to experience the region's amazing wildlife, both on foot and on water. You will come across storks, herons, white-tailed eagles, as well as otters and beavers (with luck!). 

Three-day birding safari: Explore one of the highest breeding densities of white-tailed eagles in continental Europe, the Oder Delta in Poland. The area has diverse wildlife and many attractions, including the spectacular attraction of rutting red deer in the nearby meadows and forests.
