Summer is the best period for hiking. There are many reason why hiking the Alps between June and September is the best. The reasons are simple:

  • Paths avaiable due to melted snow
  • Fresh temperatures compared with everywhere else in Europe
  • Shelters open and more possibilities for accomodations in the Alps
  • Long Days that allows you to hike the Alps with no rush

Summer Mountain Hiking means: the wildife is usually pretty active and the beauty everywhere is just to enjoy. The days are very long and is very enjoyable to have 15 days of light. You can check on this website how long will be the day light. You can take it easy and still make long trails every day also due to the lack of snow that usually from July is already melted.
