rifugios dolomite mountains

The ideal way to explore the mountain tops and experience the true history and cultural traditions of the Dolomites is to stay in a ‘rifugi’ or mountain hut.  Often used for hiking or biking tours in the summer or ski safaris during the winter months, these remote Italian rifugios offer you the genuine alpine experience.

Try not to be put off too much by the simplicity of the word ‘hut’ – these mountain hideaways can feel more like charming lodges, featuring private rooms or more-dormitory style accommodation, occasionally with private bathrooms but more often, shared.  Leaving the accommodation aside (which we can assure you, does vary hut to hut), one thing they all score incredibly highly on is the delicious and plentiful local food they serve.

Hearty, ethnic dishes are served such as gnocchi and strudel, while gazing over the mountain peaks, surrounded by breath-taking nature.  From simple and rugged huts to the more comfortable lodges, these are perfect stop-overs for walkers, mountaineers, skiers and anyone eager to embrace the beautiful terrain of the Dolomite Mountains.

We have carefully hand-picked a collection of rifugios for you to stay in during your summer or winter tour (see ski safari) – for more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch and meanwhile, have a browse through the gallery.  See also our 7 day family ski safari itinerary for ideas.
