Corvara, South Tyrol
In a mountain hut called “Stella Alpina” you are going to meet hospitality, cordiality, friendliness and a breathtaking view of the Sella range in the foreground, and Marmolada (aka Punta Penia and Mount Civetta in the distance.

The refuge is ideally located as a point for refreshment during a hike or for a stop during a day on skis, maybe during your ski trip to the Sella Ronda.

2. Rifugio Bella Vista / Schutzhütte Schöne Aussicht 2842m

Val Senales

3. Kreuzwiesen Alm 1925 m

Luson / Lüsen
This romantic mountain lodge in South Tyrol creates a harmonious balance between traditional architecture and modern comfort. From the very beginning the Kreuzwiese shelter - built in 1932 - was considered a protective and comfortable shelter for shepherds and hikers. This has never changed since. It can feel as a simple bivouac for groups of hikers or a love nest in a luxury suite. You can go snowshoeing, tobogganing and cross-country skiing and then maybe take a hot sauna that not only relaxes tense muscles, but also has a purifying effect, preparing you to taste cheeses produced directly by the owner, perhaps accompanied by superb local wines.
Open from 26.12.2017
