Rifugio Grande Halte - Alagna

At the beginning of the 20th century the hut was built as a hotel and for many decades had an important role for those who climbed up to Col d’Olen, to Capanna Margherita and to the highest peaks of Monte Rosa.

In 1946 the hut was bought by the Mortara division of the Italian Alpine Club. From then on the Grande Halte hut had a second name, “Rifugio città di Mortara” and became an alpine hut in every respect.

Over the years the building has been restructured and renovated passionately, maintaining much of the old furniture and the atmosphere of an historical alpine place.

Simply described as a very pleasant place to stay in the mountains.

Ski in and Ski out only!!  This is true mountain living!

Home made buck wheat fine noodles, rye-bread, polenta taragna: in all our dishes you will find all the typical mountain flavours and also unusual combinations of tastes, such as pork shanks with caramelised apples, cheeses with onion comfiture, spicy honey, and… come and taste it!!

Pasta, bread, biscuits and cakes are all made with biological wheat.
