Further information


Mountain Café Rifugio Nuvolau

Opening dates: from mid-June to the end of September - Always check the opening and closing dates

This refuge is an authentic eagle's nest built on the summit of Mount Nuvolau (2575 metres high!). It has been renowned since the dawn of mountaineering for its breathtaking view overlooking Cortina, the Giau Pass and the Marmolada

Far away from the ski lifts and the chaos of the centre of Cortina, it is easy to reach on foot.

In addition to the restaurant, this refuge also offers an excellent snack bar service for a quick but very tasty snack. Bread rolls with Italian sausage, grilled cheese, zucchini and onions are served in no time. The home-made desserts, such as traditional apple and carrot tarts, never fail to please. A 'new entry' is the delicious La Musella (named after the nearby mountain Gusella): chocolate mousse with whipped cream.

The hut keepers prefer Italian products, thus they serve the "Theresianer beer" brewed in Trieste and use the "Manuel Caffè" brand from San Vendemiano for their coffees and cappuccinos.

Hot chocolate is a must in the mountains. This refuge proposes the classic version and also the 'Hot Nuvolata' variant with a first layer of Chantilly cream, then hot chocolate and finally a cloud of whipped cream on top.

To restore strength in a healthy way when walking in the mountains, the team proposes the "Nuvolau Power Mix": a tasty mixture of dried fruit and nuts. The "Grissini Cortinesi" bread sticks from the Ghedina Bakery are ideal for aperitifs at high altitudes and very popular.
