Rifugio Locatelli, Sentiero 101, Alto Adige, Italy

Good day everyone!

If anyone will ask me about one of the best “Rifugi di montagna” – Alpine huts in Italy, I would say that this is one of the best and easiest to reach if you start the walk from Rifugio Auronzo (the road to reach the parking near Rifugio Auronzo is a toll road. €30/car).

Rifugio Lavaredo

I thought, nature itself can create an amazing garden at more than 2,000 feet above sea level. πŸ€”

Le Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Sesto, Italy. Though, for me, this is a relatively easy excursion, but it is always advisable to use good “scarponi di montagna” – hiking shoes and to bring what is necessary in case of a sudden change of weather. After more than 20 years of hiking, I realized that the weather can really change from sunny to bad especially after 2 pm even during summer months!

This Dolomite excursion is so amazing for me that after the fourth time of hiking towards “Rifugio Locatelli”, it is always, for me, another reason to come back and visit it again. Oh! After a long walk, how about a taste of one of their specialties?

“Polenta con salsiccia e funghi trifolati ” – corn meal with Italian sausage and mushrooms

Wishing everyone a wonderful and restful Sunday! 😘
