Rifugi Capanna Margherita, Punta Gnifetti

Inexpensive rifugi (mountain huts, mountain hostels or alpine huts) in Italian Alps make it easier for you to explore the mountain. There are many options to choose! On “The Guardian” list of the most stunning alpine huts you will find several Monterosa rifugi.

“The Guardian” published a list of 20 stunning alpine huts in the world. There are some from Monterosa.

Rifugio Guglielmina, Monte Rosa (2880m) located on the Col d’Olen between Alagna and Gressoney.

“It is perfectly placed for adventures in the Monte Rosa massif. The location remains as extraordinary as ever, even if two major lifts now serve the area and a new piste passes the front door. Wonderful food is matched by a fabulous wine cellar.”

Rifugio Guide del Cervino Plateau, Rosa, Italy (3480m)

“You can ski to the door after riding lifts from Cervinia or Zermatt. Sleep might not come easily at this altitude but after the ski domains have closed for the night you'd be foolish not to relish the basic comforts on offer - it's bitter at this height after dark, whatever the time of year.”

Rifugio Regina Margherita, Monterosa, Italy (4554m)

“As the highest mountain hut in the Alps, the Margherita is seriously remote. You feel strange at 4554m even after several obligatory days of acclimatisation and you'll never be really comfortable up here, physically or mentally: it doesn't take an over-active imagination to start pondering the big metal cables stretched over the top of the building to hold it to the ridge, as well as the storms that must rage around this unusual architectural device”

Climb to Campanna Margherita with us – read our program! Let us inspired you by our film.

The vast network of mountain huts helps us trek from one point to another without going down every time. You can stay for a night and try delicious local cuisine and start a new walk next day. Standard in every hut can vary. Sometimes it can be a wooden shed, other time – almost luxury hotel.
