A Cosy and Peaceful Bivouac for Hikers...
In the upper valley of the Parma stream, on the slopes of the Apennine ridge and immersed in a landscape with alpine features, the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine National Park has restructured (in the years 2000 and 2008) an old shelter for shepherds, recovering the interiors and transforming it into a cosy and peaceful bivouac for hikers. It is a "managed" bivouac: therefore, in order to use it, it is necessary to make a reservation and pay a management contribution fee (covering the cost of premises cleaning and maintenance).
Capanne di Badignana
At about 1,480 meters above sea level of altitude, at the edges of a precious peat bog, there is "Capanne di Badignana", one of the most beautiful laps of the upper Val Parma.
Surrounded by a characteristic high-mountain landscape with wetlands and grazing lands alternating with beech tree forests, this bivouac is the ideal destination if you want to spend the night near the ridge.

Born as a shelter for the shepherds who used to lead the flocks to these places for the summer grazing, Capanne currently house not only a shelter for the shepherd and a stable for the sheep, but also a bivouac with four beds and toilets, wood-burning stove, running water - not fit for drinking - and electric light obtained from solar panels.
Situated exactly at the crossroads between trails CAI 709 and 721, the bivouac is the ideal stop if you are walking along the second lap of the Alta Via dei Parchi from Santo Parmense Lake to Prato Spilla, and the logistic headquarters to organize many-days hikes along endless and wonderful paths within the Alta Val Parma.
Access and prices
The bivouac is available at the price of 20.00 Euro per night. Use the box below to check the date availability first, and then to book your arrival date (from noon on) and your departure date as well (within noon) by paying with your credit card or PayPal account.

By booking you bind yourself to make use of the bivouac also on behalf of the other people going with you, to replenish the firewood supplies, and to tidy up the bivouac before leaving (the manager himself or the other guests will be able to signal possible damages, which will be taken into account before accepting future bookings made by the "untidy" guest).
BivyPass Keyboard, to Go in without Keys!

The reservation box below gives you the opportunity to make the online reservation for this bivouac a few weeks, months, or even minutes in advance before your arrival.
After making your reservation, you will receive via e-mail the access code you will have to key in the keyboard in order to unlock the door of the bivouac at any time from noon of the day you have made the reservation for to noon of the following day, with no need to collect the keys from the manager or to give him the keys back.


ATTENTION: as the code allows you to enter on the booked date anyway, wrong bookings cannot be changed or reimbursed!
