/ good places for trekking in december
chile or argentina? the lake district there should have warmed up by then, though southern patagonia could still be a bit chilly...
The GR 240 that circuits Spain's Sierra Nevada is a possibility. May not be as warm as Mexico but southern Spain is cheap and accessible. There is a guide in English to it available from Stanfords and some online info at:
If your interested we'd be happy to give more info.
Atlas Mountains - Morocco
Volcanoes - Mexico
Volcanoes - Ecuador
Aconcagua - Argentina
Simien Mountains - Ethiopia
Also, Venezula and Colombia.
thanks to all repliers
The weather can be variable though you'd be unlucky to have more than 1 wet day in a row. A week of sunshine and no rain is quite possible. If you want help with logistics and somewhere to stay, we are on the mountain above Lanjaron not far from the Sulayr and will be around from 10th December.
There's likely to be snow high up, from around 2500m. but the Sulayr stays beneath this, though any rain might fall as snow down to 1300m though unlikely in December.
Mail me and Jane for more info.
Our house is at 1300m and most of the winter we are walking in T shirts, sometimes fleeces up to 1800m. The high mountains are something different, full on winter conditions. However the GR 240 the Sendero Sulayr spends most of it's route low enough to be warm if the sun's out.
