The Mountain Hut
Sandro Occhi Mountain Hut at Aviolo is situated at 1,930m, in one of the most beautiful corners of Adamello Park
, at the foot of the eastern slope of Cima Aviolo and the frozen northern wall of Corno Baitone, at the entrance of the enchanting basin where the wonderful Aviolo Lake stands out. It is one of the laps of the new stretch of Alta Via dell'Adamello.
Owned by the Municipality of Edolo, it is managed by the CAI section from Edolo.
It is a cosy small hotel with a great cuisine, open from early June to late September and eventually in other periods by previous booking. It offers rooms for a total of 54 beds, bathrooms and showers with warm running water. The winter premises are always open.
It joins the Association "Albergo Verde" of Vallecamonica, favoring the adoption of practices in tune with the environment, with local culture, and with the goals of the protected area.

The position of Sandro Occhi Mountain Hut at Aviolo is ideal to carry out several hikes and climbing activities to explore the spectacular geomorphology, the rich flora and variegated alpine fauna (chamois, wild ibex, marmot, partridge, eagle...) of the nature reserve of the Park
and heart of a Site of Community Importance (SCI). Or simply to spend some time idling and sunbathing along the shores of the enchanting lake - where it is also possible to fish - or of the very clear stream, in the peace and silence of the uncontaminated nature. It is also possible to carry out several tours.>>>
