Summer Treks and Holidays
Trekking in the Alps operates treks and holidays from January through 'til September each year.

Winter: January to March is a wonderful time for snow shoeing. Fresh snow falls regularly, but there are long periods of stable weather, when the days are clear and sunny, making fine conditions for winter walking. Snow shoe weeks and long weekends are offered throughout the winter, based in a valley hotel, making the most of the best conditions around, with at least one overnight stay in the mountains. April is a good time to go higher on snowshoes, spending nights in mountain huts which are open then and taking advantage of the longer days and stable snow conditions. 

Spring: Spring is not the best time to visit the Alps as it is a time of transition from winter to summer and the weather can be very changeable. However, further south this is the best time for walking, when it isn't too hot and the flowers are blooming. Spring destinations include Provence, Costa Blanca and Corsica.

Summer: Summer in the Alps is really July, August and early September. The snow has melted below 3000m, the flowers are at their best, the huts are open and the weather is at its most stable. Some of the lower treks can be done early in the season, whilst those that go to higher altitudes are best programmed for August or early September, when there is less risk of snow remaining on the high passes. Summer alpine multi-day treks include:

  • Tour of the Matterhorn
  • Tour of Monte Rosa
  • Tour du Mont Blanc
  • Chamonix to Zermatt Walkers Route
  • Gran Paradiso High Route
  • Dolomites Alta Via 2
  • GR5 Lac Leman to Nice
  • Corsica Northern Summits
  • Austria Otztal Alps
  • Pyrenees High Route and the Ordesa Canyon trek
  • Tour des Aiguilles Rouges
  • Tour du Mont Ruan
  • The Maritime Alps
  • Tour du Wildstrubel
  • Tour of the Jungfrau
  • Glacier Chamonix Zermatt
Hotel based weeks are also offered in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps during the summer season, when we do day walks and 2 day treks. These are called “Summit” weeks as we try to do lots of peaks, some of them around 3000m but still very accessible to walkers. There are also hotel and hut combination holidays in the Pyrenees and Corsica.
