Averau Alpine Hut
A coveted milestone along the Alta Via no.1 of the Dolomites, the Averau alpine hut is located between Cortina d’Ampezzo and the other Ladin valleys, and is both starting point and destination for excursions on foot and by bike. Located directly on the ski slopes in the very heart of the Dolomiti Superski area, the hut can be reached by chair lift from Passo Giau and from the 5 Torri. Recently renovated, it offers the possibility to spend the night in delightful rooms for 2 or 4 persons, with private bathroom. Dormitory style rooms with 6 or 10 beds are available for groups.
For an unforgettable evening on the mountain, the hut organizes dinners with access in jeep in summer and snowmobile in winter, with the option of nocturnal skiing after dinner to enjoy the starlight sky at altitude.
Paola and Sandrone take turns cooking and are known for their refined cuisine, which can be enjoyed on the large terrace with amazing views of the Civetta and the Marmolada.
Raving reviews from both Italian and foreign visitors, testify to the well deserved reputation of this superb mountain hut.
The Averau hut is located in the immediate vicinity of the Great War Outdoor Museum of the 5 Torri, where one can walk through the restored trenches and tunnels. A fascinating way for children and adults alike to learn about the history of the area.
