The Best Destinations to See Flowers in Bloom
Now we are all in agreement to nurture nature – get ready to explore the ultimate colourful flower destinations around the world in all their splendour, as this post details where to find flower fields and the best time to visit to see flowers in bloom.
The Prettiest Flower Fields in Europe
Dutch Tulip Fields in The Netherlands
When people think about the most beautiful flower fields in the world, most will think about the tulip fields in Amsterdam. Whilst beautiful, the tulip fields are not limited to Amsterdam and to see the best of The Netherlands, I would encourage travellers to explore The Netherlands beyond Amsterdam, visiting lesser-known flower field locations and stay in other cities such as Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Rotterdam and The Hague.
The flower fields in The Netherlands are vast and there is so much beauty to uncover when exploring lesser-known areas of the country.
Keukenhof Tulip Gardens Lisse Netherlands
The best tulip fields in The Netherlands, or at least, the most well known place to see tulips in The Netherlands is at Keukenhof Tulip Gardens located in Lisse (just outside Amsterdam).
Visiting Keukenhof Tulip Gardens is the ultimate Spring getaway and the perfect place to see a wide variety of tulips in bloom, after all, it is known as the Garden of Europe and one of the largest flower parks in the world.
Nothing quite prepares you for the spectacle of colourful rainbow flower fields of tulips and the aroma of the flowers at Keukenhof; a place where you can admire over 7 million flowers in bloom.
Every year the park holds a different flower theme with the flowers, trails and exhibits carefully curated to entice visitors from all over the world.
The tulip has long been considered the symbol of The Netherlands and at Keukenhof you can uncover the history of Dutch tulips (which may surprise you) as well as capture some iconic Dutch pictures in clogs and with traditional Dutch windmills in the backdrop.
When is the best time to visit Keukenhof? The quietest days to visit Keukenhof are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday with times before 10.30 am and after 4 pm. The Keukenhof Tulip Festival season starts in March, though the best time to see the tulips in bloom may vary year on year depending on the climate and temperature of the blooming season. The daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths and early tulips bloom at the start of the season, with the larger tulips blooming around the end of April/early May. Read my post about visiting Keukenhof Tulip Gardens in March.
How to get to Keukenhof – Easy to reach, Keukenhof is located within half an hour of Haarlem, Leiden, Amsterdam and The Hague.
Address: Keukenhof Tulip Gardens, Stationsweg 166A, 2161 AM Lisse Netherlands
Flevoland Tulip Fields Netherlands
There are hundreds of flower fields throughout The Netherlands to see tulips between late March and the beginning of May, and these colourful flower fields are definitely a bucket list item for Spring. Though there are many tourist areas to see the tulips around Amsterdam, one of the best destinations to enjoy the tulip fields in Holland is to head to Flevoland, which offers an opportunity to see the tulips in the open for free without crowds.
Flevoland translates as Flower land in Dutch and hosts multiple flower festivals throughout spring, even organising tulip routes to see the farm grown tulips. Flevoland has large open tulip fields around thousands of acres and is in the North of Holland close to the dikes.
How to get to the Flevoland tulips – The closest cities to Flevoland are Almere and Lelystad, the capital city which also has an airport and a train station. You can the tulips in Flevoland by taking a train from Amsterdam. Whilst this area is not as well known as a tulip destination for tourists, it is the best way to enjoy the tulips for free and in the open.
The closest Attractions in this region also include Walibi Holland Amusement Park, Almere zoo, multiple museums and countryside exploration tours like biking, which is the classic Dutch way of roaming in Holland.
Hallerbos Bluebell Flower Fields in Belgium
The Hallerbos or Blue Forest is a beautiful forested area in the vicinity of Brussels. At first glance, the forest might not look like much…that is until Spring rolls around and the whole forest is carpeted with bluebells. It truly becomes one of the most beautiful places in Belgium!
The bluebells will bloom for only a very short time: a few weeks in spring (March to April, depending on the weather). The entrance to the forest is free of charge and there are parking options available around all of the entranceways.
Thanks to the rise of social media, this natural phenomenon has become a very popular activity with both locals and tourists. If you want to witness the beauty of the blue forest for yourself, make sure you get there before 09.00 and preferably during the weekdays. There are plenty of fun hikes to be done in the forest, so why not lace up your walking shoes and make a day out of it! Make sure to be respectful of nature and to avoid stepping on the bluebells when you go!
Segesta Wildflower fields in Italy
Visit the ancient Greek temple of Segesta in Sicily in spring and early summer, and you will find the whole of the historic site carpeted in glorious wildflowers. Surrounding the temple itself and the slopes of nearby Mount Barbaro, the top of which is crowned with a Roman amphitheatre, are thick swathes of colourful flowers.
Segesta makes a wonderful day trip when visiting fascinating Palermo, the capital of Sicily. Just 75km east, Segesta is one of Sicily’s most important archaeological sites, alongside the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento.
The site ranges across several hectares and is biologically diverse with the bright red of field poppies, hot pink flower fields of valerian, yellow flowers in every shade and distinctive dusky blue flower fields of borage. The wildflowers here are abundant and create a beautiful backdrop to the ancient ruins.
For the best flower displays in Segesta visit in May and June, when every field and verge on the island will also be laden with blooms.
The best way to visit from Palermo is with an organised day trip, as public transport to Segesta is limited. If you have your own car, it will take around an hour to drive to the site. Parking costs €5 and entry to the site is €6. For the best views of the wildflowers, walk or take the shuttle up Mount Barbaro and walk back down, camera at the ready!
Lavender Fields in Provence France
The lavender fields of Provence are one of France’s top tourist attractions. There are many lavender fields to see, and they are concentrated in four different areas between Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, and Grignan.
There are three lavender types, but only two can be found in Provence: fine lavender (Lavendula Angustifolia) and lavandine (Lavandula Hybrida). The lavandine plant is bigger and more spectacular when it is in full bloom, but the fine lavender is the plant typical of Provence, the only place where it grows and a flower native to France.
The lavender season is short, around one month, and it depends on the area, altitude, and weather conditions during the previous months. However, it is safe to say that the best time to see the lavender fields of Provence is between late June and mid-August.
There are no entrance fees to see the lavender blossoms in Provence as they are open fields in the countryside. The best way to explore Provence’s lavender fields is on a self-drive holiday, but there are also guided day tours from cities like Nice, Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, and Avignon that combine sightseeing with a visit to some of the best lavender fields Provence and France has to offer.
Lavanta Köyü Lavander Village Turkey
Although most people imagine Provence, France or the Cotswolds in the UK when they think of lavender fields, you might be surprised to hear Turkey has their own version of these gorgeous periwinkle flowers.
That’s right! In southwest Turkey, there is a small village called Kuyucak Köyü that’s better known as Lavanta Köyü “the lavender village”, which has about a dozen family-run lavender fields. Although the village isn’t well-known in mainstream media yet, the village is already welcoming tourists with beautiful handmade souvenirs, photoshoot opportunities (think props and ‘photo zone’ set-ups), and even a newly-built boutique hotel.
The best time to visit Turkey’s lavender village is during the bloom season, which lasts from late June through late July. Since the village is remote, the best way to visit is by renting a car – thankfully, car rentals in Turkey are budget-friendly and start around USD 20 per day!
The nearest cities are Antalya (2.5 hours by car) and Isparta (1 hour). The main road has different fields to each side, so you can stop and visit whichever farm catches your eye, there’s usually someone at the entrance to welcome you and show you around. Entry to each field is usually free, although it’s recommended to buy a small souvenir or snack (like lavender-flavoured ice cream) to support the village. After visiting the village, you can head back to Isparta, a city famous for its roses, or relax at Salda Lake (known as the Turkish Maldives).
Skåne Rapeseed Fields in Sweden
Located in the southernmost part of Sweden, Skåne county is known for its farmland and nature escapes. In the springtime, the rapeseed fields come alive and the entire region is covered in a blanket of yellow canola blossoms.
If you’re wondering where exactly to go to see these beautiful fields, a better question would be where not to go as they are literally everywhere. The most beautiful Skåne rapeseed fields can be found in more rural areas and are the easiest to visit by car, but there are also a few scattered along bike paths near Malmö. Don’t have a car? Head to the countryside suburbs of Hyllie or Hjärup for your dose of springtime blooms. Both places are less than 30 minutes away from Malmö and are easily accessible by bus or train.
Skåne’s rapeseed fields are usually in full bloom in early to mid-May. In recent years, they have started blooming as early as April and have stuck around until early June.
The Most Beautiful Flower Fields in the UK
When the sun is shining there is nothing better than taking in the sights and smells of glorious fields of flowers. Here’s a round-up of the best flower fields in the UK to add to your British bucket list.
Hitchin Lavender Fields and Sunflower Farm Hertfordshire
Located 40 miles outside London, Hitchin Lavender Fields is a working farm nestled in the picturesque Chiltern Hills in Hertfordshire. Exploring the purple fields of lavender is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, making Hitchin Lavender Fields the perfect day trip from London.
The quickest way to visit from London is by train from St Pancras or Kings Cross to Hitchin, which takes under 45 minutes, simply take a taxi or Uber from Hitchin Station to the lavender farm. If you are driving to Hitchin Lavender Farm take junction 10 off the M1.

Bluebell Woods Essex
There is nothing more beautiful than, during Spring in England finding an ancient woodland carpeted with bluebells. Whilst you’re likely to find bluebells in hedgerows and gardens, you will find them prolific in ancient woodlands where the ground hasn’t been disturbed.
These Spring wildflowers are found any time from March to the middle of May depending on the weather in the locale. These beautiful blue flowers will last around 4 weeks from blooming. Bluebells are incredibly delicate – it can take 5 years from planting to bloom – and it’s illegal to pick or dig up wild bluebells in England.
Most bluebells are blue, but you’ll occasionally find rare white albino bluebells too. Be sure to stick only to marked paths and don’t disturb or allow your dogs to disturb this glorious but very fragile wildflower.
The best place to find bluebells in England is indeed in ancient woodlands, virtually all of which are free to access or on National Trust land, which serves to protect the bluebells and carries a small entry fee. You should aim to spend at least 90 minutes walking through the woodlands, where there are signposted circular walks.
Most of these bluebell woods in North Essex are within 15 miles of Colchester, the main town in the area. You’ll need your own transport and there is free parking in each of the woods. After your visit to the bluebell woods, spend time in Colchester, England’s oldest town, which boasts a Norman Castle and many Roman-era remains.
Mayfield Lavender Field London
One of the most beautiful places near London to visit in summer is Mayfield Lavender Field. Easily accessible from the capital by public transport, Mayfield offers an oasis of relaxation during the months of July and August, when the lavender is in full bloom.
The lavender season varies each year, depending on the weather, so if you want to visit Mayfield Lavender Fields it is better to check their Facebook page before, as they post weekly updates with the blooming stage of the flowers.
As it is one of the most accessible lavender fields from London, it does get crowded during the peak season. This is why it is better to visit early morning on a weekday, and not during the weekend. The entrance fee is £4 and it includes parking as well.
There are plenty of things to do at Mayfield Lavender Field, starting with taking photos. There are several props such as a red telephone booth and a gazebo which visitors can use to pose with. In the middle of the fields, there is also a small café that sells lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream, as well as sandwiches and small souvenirs.
Patch MK Sunflower Field Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire
Sunflower fields in the UK don’t get much better than the Patch MK Sunflower Fields in Milton Keynes. From photo opportunities amongst the giant sunflowers in the field to hay bales and a maize maze; there are so many things to do at The Patch MK with kids to keep little ones entertained.
The sunflower field at the Patch MK has sunflowers over 7ft tall and a handy viewing platform to admire the golden yellow flower field from above. There is also an array of refreshments being served, including home-grown corn on the cob, burgers and ice-cream.
The Patch MK is situated at Mount Mill Farm, which is around 20 minutes drive from Central Milton Keynes and 1 hour and 30 minutes drive from Central London.

The Best flower Fields in the USA
The Most Beautiful Flower Fields in California
The Flower Fields in Carlsbad California
The Carlsbad Flower Fields slope gently down a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean in sunny Southern California. Every spring, from March to early May, more than 50 acres of cheerful ranunculus blooms wave in the sea breeze.
The original owner of the fields started with red and yellow blooms. Today, the flower fields of Carlsbad sport a variety of bright colours and flowers, with visitors delighting in the Carlsbad poppy fields and the pastel rows of tulip flower fields at Carlsbad ranch. Officially named the “Luther Gage Giant Tecolote Ranunculus,” the flowers are named after the man who first planted fields here more than 85 years ago. And the Tecolote was a type of owl populating the area. The Carlsbad ranunculus is a member of the family of buttercups.
You can wander up and down the hillside for close-up views or ride a tractor-pulled wagon along the dirt paths. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes when visiting the flower fields at Carlsbad. Then stop in the gift shop for plants, bulbs, and other garden items and take home some of the joy of these spring blooms.
Carrizo Plain National Monument California
One of the best places in California to see wildflower bloom is Carrizo Plain National Monument.
The plain is located on the eastern edge of San Luis Obispo County in Central California, and the best way to get there is to drive. Carrizo Plain National Monument is located about two hours drive from LA and about one hour from the Central Coast.
During spring, generally mid-March to late April, the plain and surrounding hills are covered in carpets of wildflowers in good years. You will see yellow or purple flower fields as far as the eye can see, making for a magnificent view. Some of the wildflowers you can see here include daisies, phacelia, tidy tips, and poppies.
Peak bloom generally occurs in early April. You can view the wildflowers in a couple of hours if you just drive the main road through the monument, but you can also drive side roads or hike into the hills if you have more time. One of the best things about visiting Carrizo Plain National Monument is there are no entry fees, making it an affordable place to visit to see flower fields in California, as well as a great place to connect with nature.
Sunflower Mile Asheville North Carolina
Right in the midst of the beautiful Biltmore Estate is a sunflower field known as sunflower mile. Located in Asheville, North Carolina, the sunflower mile offers a breathtaking view of sunflowers for a mile-long.
Make a day of it by first visiting the Biltmore Estate to tour their grounds and finish with a gorgeous view of the sunflower field. You’ll even get a perfect backdrop with the Blue Ridge Mountains peeking out behind them.
The Estate plants different patches throughout the summer along Antler Hill Village, but you’ll find these beauties blooming in late Summer from August to September. You can even bring your bike to ride along the path that stretches the length of sunflower mile or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the trail. Either way, you won’t want to miss a chance to capture beautiful pictures of fields of flowers lining the trail of Asheville’s Biltmore Estate.
Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Washington State
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in LaConner, WA runs from April 1-30, 2021. The tulips bloom for about two weeks and the timing of the planting is staggered, so flowers are blooming for most of the month.
Not only are there over a million tulip bulbs planted, Skagit Valley is also one of the largest daffodil and iris growers in the country. Located about an hour north of Seattle, visitors can see the tulips by simply driving by the flower fields or by spending time at one of the display gardens. RoozenGaarde Display Garden is open 9am-7pm during the festival and has an admission fee of $7 on weekdays and $10 on weekends. Children under age five are free. Tulip Town is open 9am – 5pm during the festival and is $10 for ages 12 and up, $5 for children ages 6-11 and free for children under five.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a very popular event (Oprah Magazine named it one of the top ten flower festivals in the U.S.) and weekends with good weather can be especially crowded. If you’re able to visit during the week, even on a cloudy day, you’ll find much less traffic. Part of the entrance fee to the Display Gardens includes access to the fields and many visitors enjoy taking time to walk out and view them. Be sure to wear shoes that can get a little muddy.
Paradise Mount Rainier National Park Washington State
Mount Rainier National Park located in Washington State is an incredible place to see wildflowers in the summer, and with around a 3 hour drive in either direction, visiting the park makes a great day hike from Seattle or Portland, Oregon.
The best time to visit is in the summer, from July to early September, when the alpine fields are bursting with colorful wildflowers in full bloom. In fact, the area most known for them is named Paradise.
The best way to get to the park is by driving, so when planning your visit be sure to take into account having a vehicle or renting one for the day. Entrance to the national park is $30 per vehicle good for 7 days, or if you have several parks to visit in the US, investing in the America The Beautiful Pass is a steal at just $80 to cover the entrance fee to any national parks for one year.
Washington summers are known locally for their brilliant displays of wildflowers in the mountains, and Mount Rainier is the perfect destination to see them. The visitor’s centre is easily accessible by car, and even for those with mobility issues – you can see the flowers blooming right there from the parking lot.

McKee-Besher’s Wildlife Management Area
Acres of sunflowers bloom each summer outside of Washington, D.C. in the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area. Located in Poolesville, Maryland about 45 minutes north of the city, these spectacular flower fields are planted each spring as food for local wildlife. The McKee-Beshers sunflowers bloom in July, drawing birds, bees, and other pollinators, in addition to photographers and gardening enthusiasts.
McKee-Beshers is free to visit, and is part of a 2,000-acre state-owned hunting area that borders the C&O Canal National Historical Park and Seneca Creek State Park. It’s one of the few places in the Washington, D.C. region to find fields of blooming flowers. As such, it has become a must-see each year for local photographers and Instagrammers!
The flowers bloom for about two weeks, usually in mid-July. For the best photos, arrive in mid-morning after the sun has risen above the surrounding trees and the flowers have perked up. Or visit in the afternoon and spend a few hours photographing the fields.
To get to McKee-Beshers, a car is required, since there is no public transportation available that far outside the city. The flower fields are rotated annually, so visitors should be sure to check the management area’s website for the map of where to find sunflowers each year. It’s also possible to hike in the area, or visit Great Falls National Park, an area of rapids and small waterfalls on the Potomac River.
Best Flower Fields in the World
Daisy Flower Field at Torres del Paine National Park Chile
Of all of the beautiful flower fields in the world, the daisy flower field found while hiking the W trek in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile will leave you breathless.
Have you ever taken a globe and flipped it over to admire the far southern parts of the world? There so much there to explore. Torres del Paine National Park is the preeminent showcase of what the very southern tips of the famed Chilean Patagonia region have to offer. Translated from the native language it means towers of blue and these native people described the area spot on.
Jagged granite peaks jutting out of the white and blue glaciers at their bases. Flower fields covered in beautiful white daisies greet you as you admire the large rabbits enjoying their breakfast during your morning hike. The rushing rivers flowing from the glaciers feed milky blue glacial lakes. The lakes are some of the most magnificent sights to behold. You find yourself in this scenery as you hike the W Trek, a five-day overnight hiking trip covering 50 miles through this amazing park.
Permits are required to hike the W Trek in Torres del Paine National Park but you can see this beautiful daisy field even on a day trip by taking a tour to the Torres and doing a short hike from the lodge. There are various tours operating from Puerto Natales as well as public buses that you can take to the park on your own.
Farm Tomita Hokkaido Flower Fields Japan
These colourful Hokkaido flower fields are sprawled out over several rolling hills that make up this large Tomita Farm complex. This field is unique in how it incorporates many different types of flowers, of many colours, to create a rainbow flower field as far as the eye can see.
The flower season in Hokkaido lasts from May to October, with the peak season in the summer months. This area of Japan is famous for flower fields and farms, so to make the most of your visit, you’ll need a couple of days to explore. It’s advisable to visit in July or August when you can also visit the nearby sunflower and lavender fields in Hokkaido, which are only in bloom during this time.
Other things not to miss in this region are the Shirogane Blue Pond of Hokkaido in Biei, the lavender fields of Saika Farm, and the sunflower fields at the Hills of Zerubu. Sapporo itself is also known for its high quality, fresh seafood, so be sure to try out the local eats before you leave Hokkaido.
To visit Farm Tomita flower fields, head to Furano, a rural town located in the middle of Hokkaido; Japan’s northernmost island. To get here, you’ll need to fly into Sapporo, via New Chitose Airport. From Sapporo, you can take the train or drive if you are up for renting a car. Coming by train is easy enough and convenient since all of Japan is extremely well connected by public transport. By train, from Sapporo, you’ll take the train to Takikawa Station. Then, transfer to Furano Station, and a final transfer to JR Naka-Furano Station. Then it’s a 20-minute walk to Tomita Farm, which is well worth the journey to capture pictures of the prettiest flowers in the world in the vast rainbow flower fields.
Dubai Miracle Gardens Flower Park
A flower garden in the middle of a desert itself is much of a unique reason to visit Miracle Gardens in Dubai. Spread over 72000 square metres, Miracle Gardens is the largest flower garden in the world. This beautiful flower garden in Dubai has earned a few Guinness World Records for the categories – the tallest topiary art, largest topiary art and largest floral display.
With an array of 50 million flowers and 120 varieties, you are in for a visual treat when visiting Dubai’s Miracle Flower Park. The vast majority of the flowers in the Miracle Gardens are the colourful Petunia flowers. Other flowers include marigold, rose, lilac and geraniums.
The flower garden is open to the public from November until May, when the weather is at its best in Dubai. The Miracle Garden’s opening hours are from 9 am to 9 pm and the entrance fee is AED 55.
The best time of day to visit Miracle Gardens in Dubai is when the garden opens at 9 am, which is ideal if you want to beat the crowd and find some quiet spots for taking pictures in the flower gardens. Allow a minimum of 2 hours to wander around the flower gardens and a little more time if you want to take photographs.
The best way to reach Miracle Gardens is by taking Bus No.105 from Mall of Emirates Metro Station to the Miracle Gardens, as the bus stops right in front of the entrance.
Needless to say, The Dubai Miracle Garden in UAE is one of the most instagrammable places in Dubai and a must-visit attraction. Also, don’t miss the Dubai Butterfly Garden, which is located next door to the Miracle Gardens!
Wild Lupins Lake Tekapo New Zealand
In the middle of New Zealand’s South Island lies Mackenzie Country, a beautiful region of rolling hills and turquoise lakes, with the Southern Alps rising in the background.
In late Spring and early Summer, thousands of pink, blue and purple lupins appear, creating fields of flowers at Lake Tekapo. However, these lupins are not native flowers from New Zealand, they were Introduced to New Zealand and are considered a weed as they take over riverbeds and displace native birds.
Despite not being native flowers of New Zealand, they are gorgeous to look at and people flock to see the Lake Tekapo lupins, where they surround the stunning turquoise lake. Many visitors take photos of the flowers by the lake and the little stone chapel, however, you’ll find lupins in New Zealand around all the lakes and rivers in the region.
Lake Tekapo is located between Christchurch and Queenstown (around three hours’ drive from each) and, as it’s a bit of a remote area, the best way to visit is by car. The best thing about seeing the New Zealand lupins is that they are free to admire and if you do a road trip from Christchurch to Queenstown, you’ll see lupins along the way, often growing on the roadside.
If you’re wondering when lupins bloom in New Zealand, it’s worth keeping in mind that the lupin season is relatively short and the best time to see lupins in New Zealand is between late November and early January to see the wildflowers blooming at their best.
