Rifugio Lavarella is one of the more luxurious rifugios on Alta Via 1. It is located on the shore of the picturesque Le Vert lake on an elevated plateau above Rifugio Pederu.

Accommodations include private rooms with 2-3 beds and washbasins and dormitories with 5, 7, or 10 beds. Showers and toilets are shared, but their main upsell is a rare one in the Alps: a Finnish sauna. Assembled in a small separate lodge, the visitors can enjoy a magical sunset above an altitude of 2000 meters while sweating off the dust from the kilometers they put behind.

There are numerous hiking destinations in the vicinity, making Lavarella a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts.
