  • My wife and I we depart on foot from Cogne to walk to Valnontey, woodland trail along the river. Arrived to the village after about 40 minutes we hear of the Lords give indication to two boys on the Sella. What we do, we try? We start at about 11.00 for this adventure and after 2 hours and 40 minutes to reach the refuge. Well marked trail at times challenging. Along the way you can admire a spectacular landscape, the Valley from above and the glaciers that are approaching, we return we also met a chamois and marmot. The hut you eat, we took a hot soup (batteries and key way they serve because it can get cold). Then if you still want to walk, about 20 minutes, almost flat, and you're in front of a postcard, mountain glaciers, Lake Valley. Unforgettable!

  • Hike among the most renowned of the Valley 1000 meters in altitude to the refuge, but when you get the effort is amply repaid. Then a further 30 mins to get fundamental continue to Lauson, with stunning views and where it's easy to sight chamois. The shelter is well staffed and starting point for many other tours. I found a lot of kindness and selection, eating at the Bar next door to the shelter itself.

  • The refugio seems good but the man who receive you there is bad predisposed. I ve just passed through on 29/3.
  • Good food nice bed's lovely people
  • Accessible only by foot (or by helicopter ...) after a 2 and a half hours of medium difficulty, this beautiful refuge was originally built as a summer residence and hunting lodge of the Kings, in the 19TH century. Then remodeled recently, now offers half board at a very modest (relative elevation), with shared rooms of various sizes. Breakfast so-so ... If you reach between late May and early June, at high altitude are the latest snow, thus offering a landscape very rich in natural beauty and wildlife! Highly recommended!

  • Il Rifugio Vittorio Sella, in the heart of the Gran Paradiso National Park, is located in the Conca del Lauson, 2,588 meters a.s.l. The refuge offers comfortable hospitality and good food, from late March to late September. Nature reigns supreme.
