Don’t let the distance put you off. The Antermoia refuge, built in 1911 in the Vallon d'Antermoia, rewards everyone who makes it up here with a view of a glacial lake, the only one in the Catinaccio massif. It’s a fascinating sight, especially just after the thaw and in summer when it’s deep blue. Here, you will be welcomed by Martin Riz, local mountain guide and rescuer - like his father Silvio and his grandfather Luigi - who reveiced the baton by the former manager Giambisi Almo. The refuge is open in summer, but has a winter room, too, and was recently renovated by SAT, increasing the number of beds (without changing the historic building) to accommodate the demands of walkers and climbers.
From 20 June to 20 September
Before leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hut
