Val di Dona and the spectacular hollow of the mountain hut will lead you to one of the most enchanting locations in the Dolomites.

Author’s recommendation

The landscape of the Val di Dona is spectacular, and must be captured. The vivid, lively colours are to be found only between the end of spring and the beginning of summer.

1) Prepare your itinerary

2) Choose a route that is suitable for your skill level

3) Choose suitable equipment and gear

4) Consult the snow/weather bulletins

5) Heading out on your own is more risky

6) Leave information on your itinerary and on the approximate time you expect to return

7) Do not hesitate to seek the support of a professional

8) Pay attention to the information and signs that you find along the trail

9) Do not hesitate to follow your steps backwards

10) In case of an accident, sound the alarm by calling the emergency number 112.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Turn-by-turn directions

Hike from Fontanazzo to Val di Dona to Rifugio Antermoia

Behind the church in Fontanazzo (1430 m), you take a road that climbs directly into the woods. It soon becomes a narrow mule track and, finally, a trail, with signs indicating Val Dona - Rif. Dona.

The trail climbs up into the woods quite steeply, and continues West-Northwest.

At about 1550 m asl, you cross a forest road [following it to the left (West) for a short while, you can reach the nearby Rifugio Barciaveia, a possible refreshment point].

After crossing the forest road, you continue along the trail with signs for “Val Dona - Rif. Dona”.

At about 1820 m asl, the trail ends and intercepts the steep Val di Dona mule track. You continue to climb the steep forest track - at times with cobblestone paving - and, after another 200 m climb, you reach the pastures of Val di Dona, a fabulous Alpine view. Here you can find the mountain hut that bears the same name. You continue along the track (marked 577) that joins the trail marked 580 in Camerloi locality. You continue to follow trail 580, following directions for Rif. Antermoia.

The trail now climbs gradually and, after a series of easy bends and a well-marked but rocky section, you reach the “Pas de Dona” at an elevation of 2516 m. Another short and flat section leads you to Rifugio Antermoia (2497 m).

You return along the same route.

NB: It is a rather a long walk (about 15 Km - there and back, of course), and is quite tiring (just under 1200 m cumulative elevation gain). Take this fact into consideration.

There are alternative paths to reach the Antermoia Alpinehut: here you can find the itinerary that starts from Rifugio Gardeccia
