A Thorough Dive Into Everything About Alta Via 1

The first hut on the Alta Via 1 route, Rifugio Biella, used to be military property. Built of stone, it fits well with the dynamic of the surrounding scenery, and its visitors can sense the weight of the lodge’s rich historical background.

Rifugio Biella features 46 beds, 4 toilets, and 6 washbasins. Their dishes are homemade and traditional, meaning they serve local specialties. When the hut is closed during winter, there is a bivouac 100 meters away to shelter mountaineers in the case of extreme conditions.

Aside from the Alta Via 1 route, you can also climb up the Croda del Becco mountain peak after stopping at Rifugio Biella.
