- Where to go in September
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 places to holiday in September. Read on for their suggestions…
1. South Africa
This is one of the best wildlife spotting months in Kruger as it’s the nearing the end of the dry season and vegetation is thin and waterholes are far and few between making animals easier to spot. All areas are much less crowded as local school holidays have finished and there’s the added bonus that mosquitoes also begin disappearing.
2. Armenia & Georgia
September in Armenia and Georgia is the start of autumn and temperatures start to subside and rain can fall. The amazing kaleidoscope of colours of autumn are spectacular and the commencement of the harvest season often starts around this time making for some amazing culinary and photographic opportunities.
3. New England, USA
New England is famous for its fall colours which begin turning mid-September, when foliage across the region’s 13 states explodes into a riot of russet, ochre and gold. It makes a glorious backdrop to the pretty college towns, clapboard houses and steeple-topped churches – a dream for photographers.

4. Costa Rica
In Tortuguero, turtle nesting season runs until October and hatching season from September to December. Our wildlife-focused tour stays right by the beach for two nights – if we’re lucky, we’ll be able to see turtles either nesting or hatching while we’re here. A real once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Costa Rica and the Panama Canal

5. The Danube
“September is an excellent time to sail the Danube. The crowds of summer have departed Budapest and Vienna, so your overnight stops allow more time and space to explore. There is also plenty of scenic daytime sailing in pleasant temperatures including sights such as the stunning UNESCO-listed Wachau Valley.”- Robert Stapley, Product Manager

This is the perfect month to explore the breathtaking Spanish region of Catalonia. While the intense heat of summer has begun to dissipate, there are also fewer crowds, while the locals are back home after their lengthy summer holidays. Enjoy cooling sea breezes on boat rides and explore medieval towns and cobbled streets in pleasant temperatures.
7. Italy, The Amalfi Coast
September is a wonderful time to visit Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The land becomes alive with rich colour and the summer heat begins to cool. Think lemon groves with succulent fruit that are used to create Limoncello aperitif and beautiful views across the shimmering bay of Naples with Vesuvius in the background and the magical island of Capri.
