Starting from .
Built in the forties, just after the war, and named after a great mountaineer and aviator, the Refuge was intended to be a base from which to venture out onto the wild slopes of the northern Brenta and to embark on the Via delle Bocchette from the north. But now - with the arrival of the ski lifts - it is one of the main focal points for the thousands of skiers who flock to Campiglio’s pistes in winter. This is the only SAT refuge open both summer and winter, and is very popular with tourists who come here for a taste of traditional Alpine culture. Guests can enjoy the sweeping views from the terrace - ask warden Roberto Manni to help you identify the mountains: from the Brenta to Cevedale with the sun that sets behind the Adamello-Presanella group.

From the Refuge, it’s easy to get to the “Orti della Regina” (the Queen’s gardens), two natural basins on the slopes of Pietra Grande featuring a wide variety of floral species (1 hour, difficulty EE). The walk to Rifugio F. F. Tuckett & Q. Sella takes 1 ½ hours with no particularly difficult stretches of path, or you can get there on the Via delle Bocchette (4 ½ hours, difficulty EEA), which continues, maintaining altitude, across the entire Brenta Dolomites. The refuge is also a starting point for the northern route across the Brenta on the Costanzi via ferrata to Rifugio Peller, which take two days with an overnight stop in a bivouac hut, a very difficult route for experienced mountaineers only.
