Rifugio Bella Vista

The road to the refuge is gravel, rocky and treacherous. It’s a chairlift access trail. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part.  4wd vehicle required. The road is usually passable in the summer season, from the beginning of June to - weather permitting - the first days of October. Altitude and extreme weather are always a factor at any time of year. High winds blow here all year long. It's one of the highest roads of the country.
