Where to go in September

September is one of our most popular travelling months – the summer holiday crowds have departed and temperatures are that little bit cooler (making walking and sightseeing a lot more comfortable). But where should you choose for a holiday in September? We could pick out dozens of fantastic destinations, but we know that sometimes it’s better to have an edited selection, carefully chosen by those in the know. So we asked our expert team for their top 5 places to holiday in September. Read on for their suggestions…

1. South Africa

September is one of the best months for big game viewing in South Africa. It’s also a great time for spotting whales off the coast – between July and November they come in to calve around Cape Town and along the Garden Route, and can often be seen from the shoreline.

2. Morocco

Visit Morocco in September and you’ll enjoy much more manageable temperatures than in the height of summer, when the mercury tends to top 35°C in Marrakech. Coastal areas are warm and breezy, the mountains are blissfully cool, and Marrakech (while still fairly hot during the day) buzzes with al fresco activity in the evenings.

3. Western USA

National parks like Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Arches and the Grand Canyon can get very busy with US families in the summer. Come September, most schools are back so you’ll find far fewer crowds. The weather starts to cool down, too – August temperatures regularly hit the mid-30s in Utah and Arizona, whereas September is more likely to see high 20s instead.

4. Portugal

September is grape harvest time in Portugal’s Douro Valley, and our luxury river cruise really makes the most of it. We’ll sample some vintage ports and wines, witness a ‘cutting of the grapes’ ceremony and experience the yearly Douro Vintage celebrations in Pinhão.

“Corsica is lovely in September. The summer crowds have gone and the weather’s warm but not too hot. Lots of little food festivals happen around the island, too, celebrating local produce such as figs and honey – delicious!”
