Rifugio Madriccio

Madriccio Refuge, one of the highest roads of Europe

Rifugio Madriccio-Madrisch Hütte is a high mountain refuge at an elevation of 2.828m (9,278ft) above the sea level, located in the Ortler Alps in South Tyrol, Italy. It's one of the highest roads of Europe.

The road to the hut is gravel and rocky. It’s impassable from October until May. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. It's one of the highest roads of the country.
At the hut starts a small trail, drivable only by bikes, climbing up to Madritschjoch - Passo del Madriccio (46.491296, 10.629272), a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.123 m (10,246ft) above the sea level. It’s extreme and brutally steep. No phone coverage.
