The Rifugio Vajolet is an alpine hut dating back to 1897 located in the enchanting landscape of the Catinaccio group in the Dolomites, in the municipal area of Vigo di Fassa, at 2,243 m above sea level.
Rifugio Vajolet History
The Rifugio Vajolet is located in the area called "Porte Neigre", under the Vajolet towers, in a position that makes it an ideal starting point for many excursions and ascents in the Catinaccio group.
The alpine hut was built way back in 1897 from the DuÖAV section of Leipzig and in 1902 another small building was added in the vicinity of the old refuge. Since this proved to be still insufficient, in 1906 the section of Leipzig further expanded the Refuge, until the last extension in 1912, before its passage to the SAT of Trento in 1923.
The building is located in the Catinaccio area under the Vajolet towers, the center of numerous walks, excursions and equipped routes.
The Rifugio Vajolet can be reached from Pera di Fassa with a bus service to the Gardeccia refuge, from where you can reach the Vajolet refuge in an hour's walk. With the chair lift that always starts from Pera up to Pian Pecei, you can reach the Gardeccia refuge in 30 minutes and then continue to the refuge along the same road.
In addition to the overnight stay, it is also possible to have half board or full board. The kitchen offers typical local dishes, dishes for celiacs and vegans.
