CAPANNA MARGHERITA HUT ski touring
The ascent to the Capanna Margherita on Signal kuppe is the experience
Individual fee: from 290 €
The climb to Capanna Margherita, the highest refuge in Europe, is one of the most coveted and exciting experiences for mountain enthusiasts. The 4554 meters of Punta Gnifetti, are the arrival point for an incredible view of the south face of Monte Rosa, Alagna and Val Sesia, which then loses on the Po valley. The trip to the Margherita Hut is a challenge with ourselves, a test of endurance, a desire to be satisfied, a sudden emotion, a journey through one’s personal history and above all an irrational and, fortunately, irrepressible adventure.
With the Alagna guides you will find your personal way to the Margherita hut, entrusting your safety to a professional and your desires to the passion of those born in these mountains
Capanna Margherita ski touring tour
Meeting place in Alagna at 2pm at the offices of Lyskamm Travel. Equipment check and distribution of technical equipment. Cable car ride up to Indren. Hike to refuge Gnifetti arriving at 5pm. We’ll tackle the short and not too demanding trail from the Indren to Gnifetti, with long breaks to lessen possible problems of altitude sickness, caused by the difference in height of over 1000mt accomplished in 30 minutes by cable car. Dinner in the room reserved for guides and overnight stay
The climb to the Margherita Hut begins early in the morning, on a roped party, assisted by the guide who will accompany you on a memorable journey. We will complete the ascent towards mid-morning and after the usual return photo, return to Alagna with an epic 3300 m ski descent
