Rifugio Pian de Fontana is the final post on Alta Via 1. Located in the middle of meadowy slopes, it is a part of the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park.

The hut is small and built of stone. Its facilities offer showers, although hot water is not always available, so some hikers have to grit their teeth and practice the Wim Hof method for a few minutes.

There are two Alta Via 1 variants between La Stanga and Pian de Fontana — Via Ferrata del Marmol or the classic route, which is the one our Alta Via 1 hut-to-hut tour takes.
