Some Autumn landscapes look as though they have been touched with a magic wand and the colours have erupted into gold, ruby and amber. It is an enchanting season; with the cooler, crisper air and nature in prep mode for winter, which makes it a highly desirable time to visit certain places.

Maybe, there is no chance of you booking flights anywhere this autumn, or you may be in a position to set off tomorrow. Whatever your current predicament is though, one thing is for sure; you are going to 'fall' in love with these gorgeous autumnal destinations.

Lake Kawaguchiko, Japan

This stunning shot of Mount Fuji from the edge of Lake Kawaguchiko, is enough to stir the travel bug in anyone. The burnt orange leaves perfectly framing the iconic peak are known as "Momiji" trees, technically Acer palmatum, or the Japanese maple tree.

Ontario, Canada

The province of Ontario in Canada, the home of the maple tree, is famed for it's Great Lakes and the changing of the leaves in autumn. The combination of both makes for something truly special indeed.

New York, America

As if this city needed any further reason for you to visit. Autumn in New York, in particular Central Park, is one of the most awesome examples of nature in the city.

The juxtaposition of the iconic NYC skyline with the colour explosion of autumn leaves below is a captivating visual. Fancy a spot of early Christmas shopping anyone?

Northern Lights, Norway

The northern lights, technically known as aurora borealis, are a bucket-list staple for travellers across the globe. This visual extravaganza is best witnessed at certain times of the year, depending on the location.

In Northern Norway, the prime months for visiting and catching a glimpse of this iconic sight is late September, October, February and March.

Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

The deep azure of the water perfectly offsets the rusty foliage of the trees. Plitvice Lakes National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is famous for it's unique arrangement of 16 lakes which are connected by cascading waterfalls.

This natural masterpiece of a water feature is further enhanced by the surrounding landscape, which in autumn is set alight with the colours of the changing leaves.
