4 days / 3 nights

Trek to the top of Monte Rosa. In 2021 Outdoor Italy is launching a trek to the top of Monte Rosa and Europe’s highest located building, the Capanna Margherita (4556 m).

This is a unique opportunity for those who are looking for a first time ascent to the top of one of Europe’s most famous +4000 m peaks.

We will spend two days acclimatizing in the area, visiting lower peaks in one of Italy’s most beautiful alpine regions, sampling delicious local food and enjoying the views, before trekking to Rifugio Gnifetti (3647 m).

On the day of the ascent to Capanna Margherita, we will leave Rifugio Gnifetti before dawn, hiking up the glacier and arrive at the Rifugio for lunch.
