The end of the summer season does not have to mean goodbye to the mountains. On the contrary – staying after the season is an excellent alternative to wandering along the trails crowded during vacations and a chance to enjoy the stunning landscapes. Here are a few reasons to plan an active holiday in the Beskids in autumn!
- Mountains are the most beautiful in autumn
Mountains fascinate at any time of the year. In the winter, the snow-capped peaks shine beautifully in white. In the summer, the fantastic weather encourages hiking. According to many, however, it is the autumn when the mountains look most beautiful and are most conducive to covering less and more demanding trails. The golden Polish autumn is a guarantee of breathtaking views – the multicoloured slopes dotted with red and yellow trees are impressive.
- The mountains are peaceful in autumn
The popularity of mountain hiking is growing every year. During the vacation season, you can meet real crowds on the trails. In such conditions, it is difficult to have an entirely comfortable rest. Therefore, for mountain lovers who seek peace and quiet, we recommend staying in the Beskid Mountains in the autumn months. In September, the local trails become somewhat emptier, allowing you to get closer to nature and take advantage of its soothing effects.
- It’s easier to find accommodation in the mountains in autumn
The large number of tourists visiting the mountains in the summer makes it difficult to find accommodation during the peak season without proper advance notice. However, when mountain resorts become more intimate in autumn, you can easily book a place in a guesthouse or hotel – and often at a lower price than in summer. Many facilities also prepare special autumn package stays for their guests, which are worth taking advantage of.
- Autumn hiking strengthens the body
There is no need to convince anyone of the beneficial effects of mountain hiking on our bodies. Especially in autumn, hiking the trails is a great way to oxygenate your body, improve the work of the respiratory and circulatory systems, and while providing relaxation – improve your mental condition. A stay in the Beskid Mountains is also an excellent opportunity to strengthen the immune system before the onset of winter.
- Temperatures in autumn encourage us to go out on the trail
Last but not least – the weather. Summer hiking in the mountains is a real challenge for many people. However, the heat is getting less intense with the arrival of September. Temperatures are getting friendlier, weather conditions are stable, and at the same time, the days are still long enough and pleasantly sunny enough to plan an active day on the trail.
When to plan your autumn vacation in the mountains?
Do you not know when the best time to plan autumn holidays in the mountains is? In our opinion, the period from the second half of September through October to the beginning of November is the best time to visit the Beskids bathed in the autumn sun and enjoy the view of colourful trees without crowds on the trails. At that time there is also the best chance for perfect weather – of course, as before any trip, you should check its long-term forecast.
