Summer Hike- Best summer hiking trails

Hiking in summer and winter is not the same. Also hiking in tropical area and mountains is not the same.For me personally hiking in the mountains is summer is the best option. Giving you some fantastic views and less hot when you hike. I made a list of three best summer hiking trail. Lets start our journey.

TOUR DU MONT BLANC IN FRANCE, ITALY, AND SWITZERLAND

170km long with 10,000m of ascent (that’s 1km more than climbing Everest from sea level) and is usually trekked in 11 daily stages. Even in summer  mid June there is some risks of avalanche on some parts of this amazing trekk.

It’s fairly new, avalanches and floods having swept away its predecessors, something we tried not to think about as we crossed one by one, hearing and feeling the meltwater thundering by underneath. Then we turned right at a glacier and had our next big surprise, entering vast breezy meadows that seemed to be turning ever-richer shades of pink, yellow and blue, thanks to the sun now streaming down on the gently swaying flowers coming into bloom.

Where ever you look around youll see just wonderful scenery and outstanding silence.

PACIFIC CREST TRAIL IN CALIFORNIA, OREGON, AND WASHINGTON

The Pacific Crest Trail (commonly abbreviated as the PCT, and officially designated as the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail) is a long-distance hiking and equestrian trail closely aligned with the highest portion of the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges, which lie 100 to 150 miles (160 to 240 km) east of the U.S. Pacific coast. The trail’s southern terminus is on the U.S. border with Mexico, just south of Campo, California, and its northern terminus on the Canada–US border on the edge of Manning Park in British Columbia; its corridor through the U.S. is in the states of California, Oregon, and Washington.

I would say one of the best treks in US offering some outstanding views and scenery. Going through coast and some amazing mountains range .

TROLLTUNGA SUMMER HIKING TRAIL- NORWAY

Trolltunga is one of the most spectacular scenic cliffs in Norway. Trolltunga is situated about 1100 meters above sea level, hovering 700 metres above lake Ringedalsvatnet. The view is breathtaking. The hike starts in Skjeggedal and goes through the high mountains, takes 10-12 hours (23 km in total to Trolltunga and return) and the ascent is about 1000 meters. It is a long and demanding hike. The trail is marked from the parking lot in Skjeggedal to Trolltunga. Along the trail there are signs showing the distance left to Trolltunga. Consider carefully whether you are in good enough shape and have the right equipment before setting out. There is partly mobile phone coverage (Telenor) along the route. The hike is usually possible to do from mid-June, depending on when the snow melts in the mountains. Normally one can hike to Trolltunga until mid-September. WARNING – DO NOT HIKE TO TROLLTUNGA IN WINTERTIME. From March  you can join guided snowshoe hikes with Trolltunga Active.

All nature based activities are at your own risk. You will need sturdy hiking boots, bring extra warm clothing, rainwear and be prepared for bad weather. Bring map and compass, plenty to eat and drink, a torch and a simple first aid kit. Weather in the high mountains can change quickly – check the latest weather forecast before going to Trolltunga. Do NOT hike to Trolltunga in strong wind, heavy rain or in foggy weather. It is always colder in the mountains than down by the fjord. Respect the nature. Every year there are search and rescue operations for hikers in serious trouble. Prepare well and be a responsible and safe hiker. Start early in the morning. Norway is far north, meaning daylight is short from September and nights are very cold. We recommend starting at latest 8:00 in the morning.
