1. Sunflower yellow in Tuscany
The picturesque region of Tuscany, located in central Italy, is well-known for wonderful wine and culturally rich cities like Florence and Pisa. This region is also popular for its fields of sunflowers which bloom here beauifully as far as the eye can see.
Especially in the Mugello area you can discover this and find an enchanting scenery, with rolling hills, the typical tall cypresses, old estates, cute villages and bright yellow sunflower fields. You can also admire these magnificent color accents of nature on the coastal region around Livorno.
2. Bright red daisies in South Africa
The 150,000 hectares of Namaqua National Park in South Africa are completely covered in orange-red daisies in August.
The blooming season is an impressive spectacle that attracts more than 10,000 tourists every year. The park is about 500 km from Cape Town and is worthwhile for all travellers who like to explore the area along the coast and prefer round trips.
3. Purple dreams in Provence: Walk through the lavender fields
Provence in southern France is already a magical place, so when you immerse yourself in the beautiful lush purple-purple lavender fields to explore, it just blows your mind...that scent! Lavender originally came to Provence with the Romans to fight infectious diseases that were thought to come from bad smells.
Today, the plant is used for various purposes and can be taken home as a souvenir in a variety of forms, such as soap, bath oil, candle or honey.
4. Shimmering blue fairytale forest in Belgium
The Hallerbos ('Hall Forest') near Brussels, in Belgium, turns into a blue sea of blossoms from April onwards, blazing peacefully between the tall beech trees. No wonder, then, that it is one of the most beautiful forests in the world. The network of bluebells (so-called forest hyacinths) is said to have formed more than 400 years ago.
The mixed forest is a fantastic hiking area for relaxed nature excursions, located only 25 km south of Belgium's capital Brussels and easily accessible. The Hallerbos is a protected area, but there are two 4-8 km long hiking trails leading through the forest.
5. Colourful tulip carpets
The season of spring becomes incredibly impressive when you take a trip to the tulip fields in the Netherlands. You can visit the famous tulip park, Keukenhof, or simply explore the north of the Netherlands by car and get your fill of the colourful splendour, an incredibly romantic experience - instagram photo-worthy moments included!
6. A valley of orange poppies in sunny California
The state of California, located on the west coast of the United States, is not only attractive for its many attractions, including Hollywood, the beaches, and its weather, but also for it's amazing field of poppies. If you're planning a trip during the spring season, then don't forget to add Antelope Valley, a must-stop place to visit especially when these poppies are in full bloom. The drive up will take about 1 hr 30 min from Los Angeles.
