Hiking the Alps in December

Snowshoeing in the Italian Alps in the month of December

Winter Hiking in the Alps: Hiking in December

The First Month of Winter, Welcome Back Snow!

Hiking in December in the Alps can very rewarding. Snowshoes will most probably be our way to hiking the alps in December because usually it means hiking in the snow.

In some special years there is not much snow but usually December hikes are basically winter hikes. This means freezing temperatures, few paths available and white landscapes.

Winter hiking can be pretty hard and the Inn to Inn tour are the best for this period.

You spend a bit more but having access to light, warm water and a comfortable bed in this season is more important than in other season.

The weeks between Christmas and 31st of December can be more crowded while the rest of December is usually very uncrowded all over the Italian Alps.
