Mountain Rifugios

An overnight stay in a mountain 'rifugio' is a must when spending time in the Dolomites. These refugios (refuges) differ in the facilities that they offer; some are quite basic, some are more luxurious.

Dolomites, Italy

Given the breathtaking natural beauty of the region, the rifugios offer the perfect overnight accommodation allowing you to become immersed in the best of what Mother Nature has to offer, while experiencing the rich history and mountain traditions that have been kept alive for centuries.

The Dolomites offer a vast network of these mountain huts located throughout the region. Ranging from simple rugged to more comfortable amenities, they all offer suitable and welcome shelter to walkers, mountaineers, skiers and anyone wanting to get up close and personal with the beautiful terrain of the Dolomite mountains.

For those seeking a more simple experience, there are rifugios that offer the very basics, like only cold running water and a few large rooms that are shared by multiple guests. Others who desire more amenities can choose from rifugios that are more like lodges, featuring private rooms.

The locations of the rifugios vary, each offering different experiences and unique scenic views. Some are easier to get to, while others, can only be accessed on foot or by cable car. Obviously, the higher and more remote the rifugio, the more amazing the views will be. Some guests describe the experience as almost like the feeling of sitting on the edge of the world.
