What is the weather like in the Alps in summer?

Summers are generally sunny and warm in the Alps. However, don't forget that at higher altitudes, such as on the Tour du Mont-Blanc or at the Aiguille du Midi, it's still important to dress appropriately for the cold.

Also, make sure to bring gear to protect yourself from the elements. In this mountain environment, thunderstorms are possible, which is why we recommend having a guide with you during your hikes or on your Tour du Mont-Blanc.
