11 gourmet mountain huts
There are plenty more taste gourmet mountain huts in Lombardy. Here are just 11 where you can take a gourmet break at over 2,000 metres!
Polenta and grilled meats, platters, cold cuts and cheeses... These are the last prize after having walked the paths that lead to 11 gourmet mountain huts in Lombardy. Refuges that touch the sky, surrounded by the beauty of an absolute nature. From the Parco dell’Adamello to the Val Zebrù, here are our tips.
Casoncelli alla Bergamasca, Pizzoccheri, Lepre in Salmì and Polenta Taragna… even better if accompanied by a glass of Sfursàt... The cuisine of Lombardy was born, like many other cuisines, from simple traditions that are still alive today in valleys where every territory has a history made of typical local products, often produced on the mountain pastures.
The Associazione Gestori Rifugi Alpini ed escursionistici della Lombardia (Association of Managers of Alpine Huts and Hikers of Lombardy) has awarded the “Rifugi del gusto” label to numerous huts: 28 are open in the summer too. Of these we have chosen 11, between 2,000 and 2,877 metres, with the consideration that the longer the walk to get there, the more the final prize will be well-received!
For thos who are less fit, don’t worry. Here there is the complete list. Ps If you want to sleep at the hut, book direct and well in advance, as many of the huts have only few beds.
