Martina and Matteo are to be commended for their commitment and the warmth with which they welcome you into their brand new, clean hut with a lovely view. We stopped for lunch and ate well and drank good beer. The hut also offers overnight accommodation in a communal dormitory, with a hot shower. Everything is very tidy and the smell of wood is everywhere.

in the surroundings

At the foot of Mount Avio (2962), in the shadow of the Step of the Gorges, Wide (2804), the Refuge Hut in the Middle was built and completed by the Municipality of Edolo (BS) on the ruins and the ruins of the homonymous old hut, used for sheep farming.
Thanks to its privileged location, the lodge offers access to a wide network of well-marked trails, and is the ideal point of departure for your excursions, trips, and ascended in the beautiful surroundings.
