    The Regina Margherita hut (4,554m) rests atop the Punta Gnifetti in the Alps of Italy. It is the highest building in all of Europe, and is also built with copper mesh, so to deflect electrical fields.

    There are different routes one can take to reach the Margherita hut. However, on this trip, we will spend 2 days taking one of the more challenging ones. We will make the ascent via the Cresta Signal. This beautiful, but difficult route, will involve tough angles and jagged ridges. Hence requiring participants to already have mountaineering experience, and to be physical fit.

    The first day of the journey will see us climbing almost 2,300 metres in altitude in the Alta Valsesia natural park. The landscape in this area is absolutely stunning, and the views are unforgettable. We will complete the day at the bivouac Resegotti hut (3,624m), where we will rest for the night.

    For the second day, we will climb approximately 900 metres, manoeuvring through difficult terrain, until we reach the Margherita hut. Once we are at the hut, you will be given an amazing panoramic view that will allow you to see a huge portion of the Alps, including some of its most impressive peaks.

    Finally, when you’ve stored enough images in your mind to last a lifetime, we will then make our way back down the Punta Gnifetti until we get to the ski lifts. From there, we will make our way to Alagna.

    The Margherita hut is a precious treasure in the Italian Alps. And it would be my pleasure to guide you to it. If you want to join me, please send me a request.
