Is there anyone interested in possibly doing an Alps trip sometime next year? I wanted to do one this last September but due to work, lack of interest from friends and a pile of other things I was unable to.
Hahaha. Well what works with everyone? July, August or September? Its still a ways out for me so scheduling either of those months is no problem.September is tricky. If the weather plays nice then I agree it is a great time to be up there...but be advised that weather moves fast that high up. Even in August I have had issues with fog and rain.
I seem to have the best luck in deep summer, so July or August is my preference. September can be spectacular, though...it's a crap shoot either way.

An offroad trip?We will be doing Iceland and The Faroe Islands June 28th through July 22nd then I will have my Family in town first two weeks of August. September could work for me. Trying to squeeze in a springtime trip to Northern Spain and Portugal as well.
Very very nice trip !!!Hi,
July and August is the main-holiday-season in France (and in many other countries). From my point of view this time is to avoid for traveling in France, even in the Alps, as you will have thousands of Cars, Buses, Bicycles and Offroad Motorbikes on the roads. So I also prefer the first two weeks of September, it's much, much calmer everywhere.
Btw. this is my travel report from this year: http://traveldiary.de/?p=22081
It's in german, but the pictures should give a rough impression too. This time we where focussing in the region of Bardonecchia, next year we plan to go more south (Tende, etc.), but didn't make definite plans now.
