Tenth Annual Summer Interdisciplinary Conference

Climate, Weather, Clothing

The Caldes de Boi Resort lies at an altitude of about 1500 meters in a range of high mountains (the Pyrenees). The weather in July should be pleasant during the days and cool at night, but as in any mountain setting, one should be prepared for severe weather on occasion. If one goes on hikes or climbs that approach the higher elevations (the tops are above 3000 meters) one can expect to find residuals now here and there on the ground, and one should be prepared for possible wind, rain, and even possible snow. As at any location at altitude, sunburn is a danger, so do not forget sun cream, and consider sun protective clothing. For various adventure outings, specialty clothing may of course be needed (see the link on this website to ACTIVITIES.)
