Chile:

It’s actually spring down there, but it is no less attractive than in the Northern hemisphere.

Finland:

In late august in the homeland of thousands of lakes and islands comes golden autumn. Birch forests sparkle with bright yellow, and maples are burning with scarlet and brown. In Lapland autumn comes a bit earlier, in the south – later. It is high time for thousands of autumn markets, where everyone will be given a choice of preferences. The forests are full of mushrooms and berries, where locals and tourists go fishing or hunting. Spend your evening in the spa centre and sauna, or warm yourself by the fireplace in the cosy rural house in one of the quiet villages.

New Zealand: 

Another example of an autumn spring. We got accustomed to the pictures of New Zealand with bright green grass and a cool ocean, however, it is not less attractive dressed in yellow and red in the rural landscapes along the lake shores. The climate of New Zealand permits coexistence of evergreen trees and those losing their leaves. Noteworthy is that the Northern island of New Zealand is situated in the subtropical climate with its own kinds of flora, and the Southern island has a temperate climate, where the evergreens grow. The weather is absolutely amazing – warm and sunny. Tourists can swim in the curing hot springs, or travel the island in search of the most beautiful lake with the clearest blue water. It is good to know that prices in autumn are much lower both for accommodations and plane tickets, since the number of tourists reduces. Nevertheless, emotions will stay at the same level as if you travelled around the country in summer. Do not hesitate to breathe in the purest air of New Zealand.
