Flower fields and valleys are impressive and attract attention of the most discerning connoisseurs of beauty. Multi-coloured deposits of fragrant plants adorn vast valleys of almost every country! We offer several floral destinations to suit every taste.

Daffodil Valley, Transcarpathia, Ukraine

Village of Kireshi, Khust district, is a home for miraculous daffodil plantation area of about 250 hectares. Scientists claim that it emerged immediately after the Ice Age due to the large amount of water coming down from the mountains. Human activities affected this area. At some point in Soviet history, the valley even was decided to be dug for growing crops. But, fortunately, they stopped in time and donated it the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve. Now Daffodil Valley impresses thousands of visitors by rare plants listed in the Red Book.

The best time to visit it is mid-May when the plants are in full bloom. There is also the Daffodils Museum in Khust for the most curious visitors.

Valley of Flowers National Park, India

So is called the largest national park in the Western Himalayas, officially recognized in 1982. It comprises nearly 9000 hectares of land in the mountains surrounded by picturesque forests and vibrant waterfalls. Locals believe that the valley is inhabited by real fairies. Though about fairies there may be some doubts, the area surely features rare species of plants and animals. Among them are more than 500 species of flowering plants - daisies, poppies (including unique blue poppy), marigold, orchids, anemones and many others. Endless rolling hilltops covered in rainbow-hued blooms look particularly impressive at the rim of the seven mountain peaks. From July to September, the wildflower fields bloom with a floral carpet and the weather contributes to a comfortable journey.

Valley of Roses, Bulgaria

Since the 18th century the Damascus rose has been grown between two mountains near the town of Kazanlak. The first sprouts were brought here from Syria, even not assuming that the flower would be so well accustomed, and eventually even become a symbol of Bulgaria. The special climatic conditions of the valley contributes to the accumulation of a record amount of flavour in the petals. This not only gives you the opportunity to admire the Valley of Roses for a whole month, but also makes the plantation a source of raw material for the production of the world best essential oils.

You can admire these colourful blooms from late May to late June. For more rose fun, come during the annual rose festival which is held every year on 25 May. Festive speeches, processions, culinary delights and the Queen of Rose contest, are unchanging attributes of this feast.

Wild Calla Lilies Valley, California

Few people can remain indifferent to the combination of foaming waves of the Pacific Ocean and large white flowers of Calla lilies brightening up the valley from the coast to the forest with unmatched beauty, at the background of no less impressive huge redwoods. For the convenience of travellers there were built a lot of bridges and paths to follow in order not to break the route. The reason is that Calla lilies hide poison ivy, nettles and deep ravines. Thus, nature itself protects the flowers from intruders, leaving us humans the opportunity to contemplate and enjoy a floral Wonderland from a distance.

Peak of flowering is in March, if you go on a tour to the Big Sur area you are in for a real treat.

Poppies Valley, Arizona

Also know as the Antelope Valley. Since 1971, the grasslands of California's Mojave Desert was officially declared as a reserve. The flowers are not watered and cultivated there, and grow as destined by nature. Needless to say, it is strictly prohibited to pick them up.

But they are so well designed that enable both to see the overall plans from high hills, and to have close look at some red flowers. By the way, in addition to the poppies, clover, coreopsis and lupine can be found in the Antelope Valley.

It is difficult to find a right time to visit blooming poppies, blossom lasts only a few days in the period from April to May. But if you can catch the magic, show will be remembered for a lifetime.
