Rifugio Re Alberto

Fall asleep among the peaks of the Catinaccio

The Re Alberto 1° refuge awaits, with spacious and comfortable rooms for an unforgettable night under the starry sky of the UNESCO Dolomites.

The faint silhouette of our alpine refuge in the distance is a sign that you’ve almost made it. We plan to be the final stage of your excursion, waiting with a refreshing drink, a hot meal, glass of wine and a comfortable bed where you can finally rest. You’ll be welcomed by our staff who all know the weariness of the ascent and what it truly means to have earned the goal.


The Re Alberto 1° refuge aims to keep the style of true alpine refuges alive and to keep the traditional characteristics of mountain houses. We do offer private rooms but, not being a hotel, the shared dormitory remains the most popular accommodation. Simple design and thorough cleaning are consistent throughout the property.
The refuge is divided over two floors and has some private rooms that offer two, three, four or five beds. The dorms range from six to 15 beds. All rooms are equipped with wooden bunk beds and mattresses, pillows, and warm duvets with linen sheets. However, the use of a linen bag or a sleeping bag remains mandatory for hygiene purposes.
Bathrooms are shared and include sinks, foot washers and hairdryers.
The hot water shower requires a token that costs € 3.00 for 3 minutes, but you’ll need to bring a towel and slippers.
There are no power sockets in the rooms, but you can easily charge mobile phones and other electronics in the dining room, which has special corners equipped with USB sockets.
We only accept dogs in private rooms not the dormitories and are unable to house more than two per night. Admission for dogs costs a small supplement of € 10.00. However, please be aware not all dogs can easily reach the refuge, as the climb can be challenging in the fixed rope sections. All breeds are welcome, but the dog should be young and agile if you’re planning to bring it.

The 6 golden rules - before you leave for your hike+

Leave early in the morning and choose the itinerary according to your physical and technical abilities.
Check the weather. The best site for temperature, rain or storm forecasts is
Any excursion in the mountains should not be improvised, but carefully planned by evaluating the route, length, difficulty and weather conditions. Tell people where you are going and your estimated time of return.
Wear suitable clothing for the climate, paying particular attention to the expected temperatures at the place of arrival and not at the place of departure. Store spare socks and clothing in your backpack inside plastic bags to keep them dry in case of rain.
Use trekking shoes with suitable soles.
Carry the necessary equipment, also thinking about emergency situations, but without taking on too much weight.
Bring a power bank and headphones for mobile phone use. In shelters you won't always find power sockets in the room.
Always have cash on hand. In the mountains there is not always a good connection for using a credit card.

The 6 golden rules - during the excursion+

NEVER leave the path and always follow the trail signs.
Using a map or GPS, try to locate your position. Always have a paper map with you to better evaluate the best or an alternative route. We recommend: Hiking map no. 629. Catinaccio, Latemar-Rosengarten 1:25,000. Ed. bilingual: Wandelkaart 1:25 000 Map - Folded Map, January 1, 2016 by Kompass-Karten (Author).
Drink little but often and eat properly.
Maintain responsible behaviour by not throwing stones, disturbing animals or other hikers, or lighting fires. It’s absolutely prohibited to leave waste of any kind.
Keep track of the evolution of the weather conditions and, if necessary, change itinerary or give up.
In the event of an emergency and the need for help, call 112 or 118. Try to remain available (connected) and do not move.
