Areas that are covered by snow during the winter, mountain passes, etc. ofte become much too complicated or dangerous to visit, according to the season.

Thus, it is very important to find out how the seasonal changes influence the terrain that you are planning to visit or cross before actually starting your trip, because you will have to obtain your provisions based on those figures.

The overall experience and training of the members of your expedition also plays a role: it is not the same to travel with seasoned explorers as with beginners, and it is also different to go with a small group than with a lot of people.

As a general rule, speed is inversely proportional to the number of people in the trekking party, and directly proportional to the degree of experience and knowledge of its members. Your standard should be a group of three experienced and one inexperienced participant. Their speed, ability and resourcefulness should be taken as your measure.

The time of the day is also important: a nice way to visit the Valdez Peninsula, in Patagonia is by roaming the sea shores, beaches and cliffs, either by foot or by vehicle. However, many visitors don't know that the tidal variation there is one of the highest in the world. So, many vehicles get trapped by the rising sea just because their owners would not take this factor into account and attempt to cross some areas at unadvisable hours.

In the case of many mountainous regions, climbers begin their excursions before dawn in order to be able to walk over hard snow. If they wait too much, the morning sun would eventually melt part of the snow and soften it, making it more difficult and dangerous for them to walk over it.
