Best time to go to the wilderness
The best time to go on wilderness vacations tends to be dictated not so much by your schedule, but by when the conditions are the safest and most welcoming to your visit.
Wildernesses are found around the world, from the forests of Finland and Sweden to the frozen vastness of Patagonia and the Arctic, and the rainforests of Tasmania and Guyana. What they all have in common, however, is that they are always some distance from urban areas, often threatening inhospitable terrain or climate, likely have only the most basic infrastructure, and potentially dangerous wildlife wandering around too. The wilderness keeps its own schedule according to the rhythms of nature. The best time to explore it then is when conditions are most hospitable to your interests and safety. Traveling with a local guide wise to the risks is a very good idea.
