Fresh air and natural beauties in the amazing mountains of Italy

Summer mountain hiking in the Alps is simply the best activity you can imagine if you are visiting Europe, and Italy in particular. The environment of the Alps in the summer months is just amazing. Chilly air, warm sun and amazing mountain landscapes. All the trekking paths are usually open in this season so you can enjoy the highest peaks and pass. Glaciers appears after they have been covered by snow in the other months of the year and to spot wildlife hiking in the alps is way easier. Ibex, Chamois, Eagles, Marmots, Vultures and many others. The Alps in Summer is their festival due to moderate temperatures an lack of snow. We will be able to organize hiking trips in the Alps almost everywhere. Usually it is the best period to go hiking at high altitude, such as 2500/3000 meters. The Passes are finally open and is possible to organize amazing rings or trails hiking in the Alps for multiple days. It is also the season where all the Shelter/Rifugi are open: sleeping up in the Alptutude in this period is easy and comfortable. The unguarded huts are more busy especially during August and the weekends of July so it is better to use tent if you are looking for wild hikes. Hiking trips in the Alps in summer is the only time where the paths can be a bit busy. Specially in Tour of Mont Blanc area and where the big peaks are.

Our Italian Alps Summer Hiking

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.
