Imminent opening of the refuge for the summer season

Rifugio Alpino
Luigi Zacchi

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.

Completely renovated

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.

Getting to know and experience these places

The Rifugio Zacchi team is made up of men and women from nearby Carnia, Valcanale and Canal del Ferro. The hut will be a guarantee and a point of reference for any necessary information for those who wish to get to know and experience the place and its surroundings.

The refuge is open every year in summer (from May to the end of September) and in winter (from 1 December to Easter), available to walkers, mountaineers and nature lovers.
