Feel free this fall and winter
Having said farewell to summer 2017, we've now welcomed the glorious season of fall and all its wonders. Characterized by much cooler temperatures, it is a truly beautiful time of the year, bringing with it incredible transformations to the natural landscape. Fall is the perfect season to get outdoors and embrace Lebanon’s wilder side, with trees swathed in shades of orange, yellow, red and ochre, and rivers and lakes brimming with wildlife. As winter sets in, delicate patches of glistening snow will cap our mountaintops, providing us with an exciting range of activities. This is a remarkable country, as the coming months will once again prove.
When we put together this issue of Lebanon Traveler, we wanted to emphasize the importance of being active and getting the most out of fall and winter. With that in mind, we came up with a mishmash of 20 suggestions for your bucket list. We hope to encourage you to do something a little different over the coming weeks, whether it's biking around Taanayel or visiting the remains of the Dahr el Baidar train station.
This is one of the best times of the year to hike, so with the help of our amazing experts and hiking enthusiasts, we've gathered a selection of trails for you to try out, whatever your ability. In a separate article, we've highlighted five waterfalls around the country that come to life in the winter months. Don’t be surprised by the pictures; they really are all in Lebanon!
And in case those rainy days ahead fail to motivate you to get outdoors, we've also taken a quick look at eight fascinating museums in and around Beirut for you to discover. Boasting a wealth of cultural, archaeological and historical gems, they are incredible places that we are truly fortunate to have on our doorstep.
We would like to thank our wonderful contributors who have enriched this final issue of 2017 with their beautiful words and photographs. We look forward to a bright New Year, and to many more Lebanese adventures with you all.
