Why to choose a mountain vacation in autumn?

Summer is gone, and with it, it seems, so is the mood. With the onset of autumn, it seems that such a strange melancholic mood comes over us. We wonder why. Isn’t autumn no less beautiful than summer? Isn’t autumn a wonderful season to enjoy as well. In fact, isn’t it great to vacation in the fall too?

Even more so if your choice of holiday is usually linked to the mountains! In fact, the sea is already too rough and the seaside resorts too windy and cold for a seaside vacation. But the mountain has no working hours. The truth is that it is constantly open 24/7 for enthusiasts, adventure seekers and romantics who usually choose SPA rest and relaxation over trekking and extreme sports.

If you haven’t yet gotten into a new, vacation mood, check out our top reasons to choose the mountain for your fall vacation.

  • Calmness

In autumn it is much calmer. Many tourists try to escape the hustle and bustle of the summer season and that’s why they wait for August to pass to enjoy a late summer vacation. These are the relaxation seekers in the truest sense of the word. It is a fact that in autumn the resorts are emptier, but isn’t that a reason to consider them more romantic, welcoming and above all calm and relaxing!

  • Lots of days off

In Bulgaria, autumn is full of holidays, that is occasions for vacation. Starting with September 6th and reaching a little later until September 22nd, the truth is that the beginning of autumn in our country is the beginning of new vacations. Usually, the Day of Unification and the Day of Independence in Bulgaria are an occasion for many in Bulgaria to merge the day off with the weekend and, if necessary, take another 1-2 days off to have a wonderful vacation in the mountains. It’s just too late for the sea…

  • The beauty of autumn

The mountain becomes truly magical in autumn. Just imagine all those colors in which the golden, the scarlet, the bright yellow and the indescribable orange overflow! Don’t you just think of the golden autumn in a mountain resort and just pack your bags and leave without a plan or directions… The truth is that the colors of autumn in the mountains are so magical that sometimes we wonder – who actually called autumn the saddest season? Isn’t it actually the most colorful and colorful time of the year?

  • Better prices

In autumn, the prices in the mountain resorts are quite good. In fact, the big promotions are right in the September-November period. It is an in-between time, during which less interest is expected than summer, when escaping the city heat, and winter, when escaping to the extreme ski slopes. If you’re looking for a really affordable SPA vacation, definitely consider an autumn adventure to the mountains. Especially if you love luxurious experiences, rich tables and romance in front of the fireplace or in the outdoor hot jacuzzi!

  • Recommended for mental health

A mountain holiday is the perfect transition from the holiday season to the coming harsh winter. According to psychologists, such a break is actually healthy these days. They describe autumn as the riskiest for the psyche and our stable emotional state. It is believed that the transition from strong and positive emotions, the presence of sun and vitamin D to the cold weather and the eternal cycle of work-home duties should be smooth, and best accompanied by rest and pleasant experiences. That is why we could also talk about a healthy reason to go to the mountains in autumn.

So, are you ready for another vacation this year? Well pack your bags and let’s go to the mountains! Autumn is calling you!
