The ascent to Capanna Margherita, the highest refuge in Europe, is one of the most coveted and exciting experiences for mountain enthusiasts. From the top of Punta Gnifetti at 4554 m, your gaze sweeps down from the dizzying south face of Monte Rosa over Alagna and Valsesia, losing itself from the Po valley to the Maritime Alps. In winter, even if only winter rooms are open, reaching the refuge is possible on skis, relying on the safe guidance of the Monterosa guides.
Guides are the ones who will help you find the best route to reach Refuge Margherita, relying your safety to a professional and your desires to the passion of those born in these mountains.
The program could undergo daily changes made by the guide, with the agreement of the participants, taking into account snow and weather conditions
