The Rifugio Zacchi reopens in June 2022 under new management. It is a gem of stone and wood on two floors, in the splendid amphitheatre formed by the Ponze, Veunza and Mangart mountains.
The refuge is located at an altitude of 1,380 metres, on the north-eastern border of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, between Slovenia and Austria, on the territory of the municipality of Tarvisio, in the heart of the Giulian Alps.
Owned by the Region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, completely renovated in 2008, it will be managed for the next fifteen years by the company owned by Alberto Martinelli.
Working alongside him operationally is a team of seven people – manager, cook, waiters and handymen – a team ready to welcome walkers and mountaineers in summer and winter.
