  • Reach the refuge in winter made me think of the troops that in late spring of 1800 have faced this ascent with a lot of snow, animals, weapons and guns in tow. The hut lies on Swiss territory on a frozen lake. I failed to see the famous dogs save people with the fateful flask of liquor under the neck ... shame! On the other hand the shelter and very interesting. You can eat, sleep, and within it you will find the tomb of General Desaix who saved Napoleon from the disaster of Marengo. Napoleon has pledged to put here his tomb since in that battle the General lost his life. Upstairs you will find the Museum of the great Saint Bernard pass with the history of the place and the various archaeological findings and even items left by Emperor Napoleon during his transition. Demanding tour in winter, but very nice!

  • Loved this place but be forewarned-even in July it is very cold at the pass. The pass is closed a part of the year. We delayed leaving by a day because fog made it impossible to see the road!  more »
  • It was amazing to look at the mountains on the side with the houses perched high up there. The tunnel itself was also iconic with beams that allows one to look out while the vehicle passes through.  more »
