Find your Mongolia trip
I have walked the West Highland Way, at least in some part, during every month of the year and although each has its attractions if I was going to plump for one month it would probably have to be May. The weather is generally settled and the midgies are not yet really out in force. Be warned that you will have to book many months in advance.
Recently voted, by Macs Adventure customers, as the trek they would most like to do, the Inca Trail is one of those treks most walkers aspire to. May to September are the driest months on the Inca Trail and although cold at night the days are dry and warm. By trekking in June you avoid the busiest holiday months of July and August.
Inca Trail Peru is a great non-commercial site with a wealth of information to help you plan your trek and there are numerous commercial operators in Peru and around the world who feature The Inca Trail. This long established trek can be as comfortable as you wish. Stay in mountain refuges if you wish or alternatively several companies offer itineraries which include hotel and pension accommodation on most nights.
Born in Scotland, John Muir, a pioneering conservationist was the driving force behind the recognising the value of Wilderness in the USA. He was a founder of the Sierra Club and his activism helped save Yosemite. The John Muir Trail is a real wilderness trek for hardened hikers. It stretches for miles through the Sierra Nevada, passing through several of the Western United States best wilderness areas including Yosemite and the Sequoia National Parks.
The high passes on the trail can hold now until mid-July so for the best weather and hiking the trail in August should give you the best experience. Make sure you have your permits organised wel in advance and be sure to watch out for bears!

Early September is a great time to experience the Kungsleden Trail , a mile trek in the far North of Sweden. We offer the trip as a 7 night itinerary you will hike between simple and traditional mountain cabins in spectacular settings. You will carry your own pack and a small supply of provisions.
The walking is fairly easy, and the path easy to follow, whilst still giving you that true mountain experience. The food, wine and refined atmosphere of Tuscany would be the perfect tonic after the wilderness of the past two months. The landscape of Tuscany could never be described as wilderness but the vineyards, olive groves and picturesque hilltop towns are equally beautiful. October is my favorite time for walking in Tuscany. The gentle play of autumn light on auburn vineyards and medieval towns is food for the soul, and that is before you have even started on the food and wine.
Spend a week traversing alpine meadows and lakes, open woodlands and snow-dusted peaks on little-trodden trails, then compare tales with other hikers over excellent dinners in rustic mountain refuges. Three departures in July and September.
