Aconcagua

Wild Women on Top had the most extra ordinary expedition to Mt Aconcagua with World Expeditions! Angel Armesto's passion, experience, commitment and ability to guide safely on a challenging high altitude expedition was superb. Thanks for connecting us with such a remarkable man on such a fantastic adventure.

The Weather in Switzerland

The walking season in the European Alps is short – from mid June to mid September and many of the mountain refuges areclosed outside this time. In winter parts of the trail are transformed into world class ski runs, evidenced by the comprehensive network of cablecars or téléfériques. Bearing in  mind that much of the route is at altitudes of over 1000m, the temperatures can vary significantly. Please note at the beginning of the season you may experience snow and therefore the walking can be harder and slippery underfoot. Temperatures in summer range from around 6 degrees Celsius to 20 degrees Celsius during the day. Afternoon thunderstorms are quite common. At the higher elevations it is important to dress with layers as cold winds and possible snow falls can happen even in summer.
