    The Regina Margherita hut (4,554m) in the Alps of Italy, atop the Punta Gnifetti is famous for a variety of reasons. Not only is the hut named after an Italian Queen, Margherita of Savoy, but it is also the highest building in all of Europe!

    With a building having so many accolades, it would be difficult to see it living it up to them. However, in the case of the Margherita hut, it absolutely does. The views from this small, yet famous building are stupendous. You will have the chance to see valleys and glaciers below, as well as beautiful peaks all around, including Mont Blanc (4,810m).

    On this 2 day trip, we will take an easy route from the ski lifts of Alagna. After the ski lift ride to the Indren glacier (3,275m), we will walk to the Mantua refuge (3,498m) where we will spend the night. On the next day, we will make the 1000 metre journey to the Margherita hut. The exciting, scenic trek will include passing through, or near, the Lys glacier and the Grenz glacier. Finally, with Parta Parta on the right hand side, we will head up the last, steep slope until we reach the hut.

    Once we reach the hut, you will be given plenty of time to admire and appreciate the undeniable views. Afterwards, we will make our way down the same way we ascended.

    The Margherita hut is a special place. And it would be my pleasure to guide you to it, so you can see and feel just how special it really is. If you’re interested, please send me a request.
