Where to go when trekking guide

Although we have walking and trekking holidays available all year round make the most of your climb and find out the best time to trek. Here's our guide to where to trek when.

Spring

Himalayas and Everest - Spring is the dry season in Asia and a gret time for trekking Nepal. The trekking routes reopen after winter and the trails clear. Make Everest Base Camp your must see for 2014.

Summer

Inca Trail - Summer sees the start of the peak season in Peru with hundreds of people enjoying the sunny, dry weather. Make sure you book your Inca Trail as early as possible - we recommend six months in advance.

Kilimanjaro - It is the beginning of the dry season in East Africa too so look out Kili! This is peak Kilimanjaro trekking season with rewarding views and you might just see the Great Migration across the African plains.

Autumn

Himalayas and Everest - The most popular trekking season for Nepal is September to November as its cool with clear skies.

Patagonia - November to April are the recommended trekking months for  Patagonia, Argentina due to the longer days and warm weather.

Winter

Kilimanjaro - Despite the colder weather, winter is still a popular trekking time for Kilimanjaro.With clearer days and a greater chance of snow, this is a beautiful and quieter time to climb.

Inca Trail - Rainfall increase in the winter months in Peru but the paths are quieter and there is more availability. If you don't mind wearing your waterproofs then winter is a chance to enjoy the Andes in peace and quiet. Only February is unavailable as the Inca Trail is closed.

Atlas Mountains - Winter is cold and snowy in the Atlas Mountains but it is a great time to climb Mount Toubkal.The winter conditions make this a challenge and a chance to practice using ice picks and crampons. If you don't fancy the cold then spring or summer are warmer times to visit.
