Autumn is harvest season in Lebanon. The weather turns crisp and cool; there are fewer crowds; and the natural beauty of the hinterland turns over with fiery colors.
The fall foliage will give your tour of Lebanon’s historical treasures a rustic feel. Leisurely explore the country’s numerous ruins, artifacts and monuments. Go on a hike in our cedar forests. Take in a new culinary experience, sampling authentic Lebanese cuisine at any of our fine restaurants.
Don’t miss wine tasting at the vineyards in the Bekaa valley, the citrus harvest in the south, and apple picking in the north. Hire a local guide to take you on a trip along the ancient olive route to see how olives are harvested and their oil gets pressed. And be sure to purchase a decanter of pure Lebanese olive oil and some handmade olive oil soap.
