If you plan to spend the night in the hut in summer, it is mandatory to make the reservation in advance as the occupancy rate is usually very high. The reservation is made only through the hut’s website. It is not necessary to book for the guide.
Due to the deficient and late timetable of the cable car for mountain activities, there is the possibility to start all the activities at an appropriate time by using a 4×4 vehicle (35€ i/v). In short activities or close to the cable car is optional, in the longer and farther ones, its use will be mandatory. Using it we can do the activity with a good safety margin, without hurry, without people and without the long queues of the cable car in summer.
