Bus Tours to Hunter Mountain White Mountains
Feeling romantic and adventurous? Up for an active weekend? Visit the White Mountains with "Comfort SKI in New York" bus tours. It is a mountain range North of the Lakes District in the state of Hunter Mountain, with Mount Washington being the highest point at over six thousand feet. It spreads over almost a quarter of the state and attracts travelers all year round. Although, if you can only survive in a hot climate, this area is probably not your best option. But if you are craving cooler weather even in summer, definitely plan a tour to the White Mountains.
There are 48 peaks on Hunter Mountain’s side of the mountain range and it’s a nice challenge in itself to climb and explore each of them. Of course, mountaineering isn’t for everyone, and if it’s not your favorite sport, there are other things to do around here.
Franconia Notch State Park, situated between several mountain peaks, offers many small hotels around the area a summer campground. You can spend hours here exploring shorter hiking trails, canoeing, swimming, and it’s equipped for skiing and snowboarding in winter. Don’t forget to get an adrenaline boost on the aerial tramway, taking in the beautiful scenery around you.
Further down South, Flume Gorge is a natural 800-ft long gorge with wooden passways all along and a waterfall at the end. Some of the trails are closed off in winter, but that won’t deter you from appreciating the crisp air, still nature, and frozen water. Travelers of all ages enjoy this place.
There is a theme park in the less elevated part of the western White Mountains, called Story Land. It is mostly focused on children, with attractions and rides based on nursery rhymes and fairy tales. There is also a small zoo in the park. Story Land is not the only amusement park in this region. North of the White Mountains, Santa’s Village is a Christmas and winter-themed park, that is open from May to December. It has rides and water features, an all-around great place to bring your children to.
One of the best places to visit in winter is the Ice Castles in Lincoln, right in the middle of the mountain range. It displays ice formations lit in different colors. Bring hot chocolate and warm waterproof clothes with you to get the most out of the ice slides.
And of course, you should visit Mount Abram in winter. It offers over 40 trails for skiing and snowboarding, from beginner to expert, and a lodge for dining and warming up.
