Rifugio Vajolet was built in 1897 and then extended in 1902 and 1906 by the Sezione Alpinverein di Lipsia (Lipsia Association of Mountain Refuges).

It is now owned by the S.A.T. (Socetà Alpinisti Trentini [Trentino Mountaineering Society]) and has been managed for some 20 years by Fabio and Karin Bernard.

Rifugio Vajolet is located in the Vajolet basin above the Porte Neigre and is a departure point for numerous excursions with easy paths, vie ferrate (paths with iron ropes) of average difficulty (Passo Santner - Catinaccio d’Antermoia), as well as the possibility of climbing routes of varying levels of difficulty (Punta Emma, Catinaccio and Torri del Vajolet).


    A wide-ranging menu of typical regional specialities, including gluten-free and vegan dishes.

    There are small individual rooms available (2, 3 or 4 beds).

    The position of the refuge is easy to reach and represents a central departure point for excursions of varying difficulty.
