Lago d'Ajal Refuge

+39 376 0474338
Opening dates: summer opening: end of May-end of October. Always check the dates

The Lago d’Ajal mountain refuge is a small jewel in the middle of a natural paradise and enchants young and old.

After a radical renovation that fully respects the natural environment, the hut keeper is ready to welcome his guests both in summer and winter.

The refuge is mirrored in the water of the same-named lake. On the large terrace, you can enjoy traditional dishes directly on the lake, surrounded by the natural wonder of the Ampezzo Dolomites. A unique experience!

The young hut keeper, Alberto Alverà, has two great passions: the mountains and eno-gastronomy. And both are in the air here: love for nature and a well-stocked wine cellar. The kitchen is closely linked to the territory and therefore focused on local raw materials and products. The refuge is open for lunch and dinner, but during the day, a bar service always makes available some dishes to hungry guests.

The Lago d'Ajal refuge has 2 lake view suites where guests will live a fascinating experience amid a natural Eden.

Reservation is recommended.

How to get to the Lago d'Ajal Refuge

  • In summer, the refuge can be reached with a pleasant walk of about 30 minutes starting from the car park near the Lago di Pianozes restaurant on the trail no. 430. PLEASE NOTE: the access road is a gravel path and is open only at certain times of the year to protect the unique nature of this area. Alternatively, a jeep service is available on request and by reservation. Another easy hike that can also be done with an all-terrain stroller, leads to the Lago d'Ajal Refuge. The starting point is the free car park next to the Malga Peziè de Parù Refuge.
  • In winter, you can reach the refuge from the Cortina district Peziè de Parù either on foot, with snowshoes or touring skis on a beautiful path that crosses the forest in about 40 minutes with gentle ups and downs.
    In the evening, a snowmobile transport from Peziè de Parù is available upon prior reservation.
    Please note: the Lago d'Ajal Refuge will not be open during the 2023-24 winter season.

*The Delicious Cortina team, which also includes the Lago d'Ajal Refuge, 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 WW1-museums, sports competitions, themed dinners and photo competitions to solidarity events.The complete list of all these experiences is published in the events calendar.
