The ascent to the Capanna Margherita on Signal kuppe in the experience

Meeting place in Alagna at 2:30 pm 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 5 pm. 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 1000 mt accomplished in 30 minutes by cable car. Dinner in the room reserved for guides and overnight stay
Ascent to Capanna Margherita with the first light of dawn, together in a roped party and assisted by your guide who will accompany you on a memorable journey. We’ll arrive at Capanna Margherita late afternoon. After a light lunch and well-deserved rest prepare yourself for a spectacular sunset and memorable evening in the highest refuge in Europe.
