The mountain hut Rifugio Col Gallina is situated at a short distance from the Falzarego Pass and the Great Dolomites Road towards Cortina d'Ampezzo. It is at the hub of a dense network of easy paths and really beautiful excursions on foot or by mountain bike towards the Torri Falzarego, Mt. Averau and the 5 Torri.
Furthermore, the Rifugio Col Gallina is situated on the skiing circuit Super8 Ski Tour. This Ski Tour is extremely panoramic. It winds around the mountains in an 8-shape along, easy slopes and has several entrances: the chairlifts of Bai de Dones and Giau pass, the Falzarego pass or Armentarola.
The large perfectly well-tended meadow complete with playground and reclining chairs makes this an ideal spot for families and children.
The large terrace faces the ski slopes of the Col Gallina. The mountain hut host Raniero organizes entertaining parties and in winter romantic snowshoe hikes in the forest or to the Cima Gallina emplacements of the First World War.
And for those who want to venture out on invigorating nocturnal ascents and descents under the starlit sky, Raniero proposes an evening with a difference: aperitifs at the refuge, an ascent to the Scoiattoli or Averau Refuge, where you can have dinner, and, to finish, back to the Col Gallina on skis in the company of the moon.
Raniero is a national mountain bike instructor and will be happy to accompany you along scenic paths or advice on routes and excursions.In winter he organizes thrilling descents with fat bikes, mountain bikes with oversized tyres for riding on snow.
Experience the magic of the night sky in the Dolomites spending a night beneath a ceiling of stars in the Starlight Rooms in Col Gallina. Here, nestled in a comfortable glass-walled room, you can admire the sky at high altitude from dusk to dawn.
The Delicious Cortina team, which also includes the refuge Col Gallina, organizes all kinds of events throughout the year: from high altitude concerts, parties on the panoramic terraces, exhibitions and meetings in the cultural centres of the area, historical re-enactments in the museums of WWI, sports competitions, themed dinners and photo competitions to solidarity events.
The complete list of all these experiences is published in the events calendar.
Always check the opening and closing dates.
