The mountain hut Rifugio Lagazuoi is situated on the peak of Mount Lagazuoi, above the Falzarego Pass, halfway between Cortina d'Ampezzo and the Badia Valley.
Located at 2752m altitude, the Lagazuoi Refuge is the highest and the largest mountain hut in Cortina d'Ampezzo and boasts the most panoramic terrace in the Dolomites.
This modern and welcoming mountain hut has always been run by the Pompanin family.
Built in 1964/65 by the local alpine guide Ugo Pompanin, a strong climber with many first ascents in the Dolomites, the refuge is currently managed by his son Guido Pompanin and his wife Alma (read more about he history of tourism on Mt. Lagazuoi >>>).
It is only about 50 meters away from the upper station of the cable car and at a short distance from the summit of the Little Lagazuoi and thus it is easily accessible on foot or by the Lagazuoi cable car.
The Lagazuoi refuge offers a bar and restaurant with 100 seats inside / 200 on the terrace and 74 beds in private rooms and dormitories. Comfortable rooms and quality and care in the household and kitchen ensure an unforgettable stay in the high mountains with incomparably beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Right next to the Lagazuoi Refuge, at an altitude of 2746 meters, the highest sauna in the Dolomites offers the perfect mix for a unique, unforgettable experience: an ultimate panorama plus the opportunity to spoil yourself with deep relaxation in a Finnish Sauna, thus achieving fast relief from tension and stress.
