Hut Viso

  • Refuge
Elevation : 2460m
05460 Abriès-Ristolas
At 2460m of altitude. 2 and a half hour from la Roche Ecroulée, south-facing and with a splendid view on Mt Viso. On the hiking tours of Viso and Queyras.
A high mountain refuge with a beautiful terrace facing Mt Viso where you can have a nice meal and taste a local beer. A complete mountaineer menu is served in the evening. Here the cooking is home made! To spend a night in a refuge it is something unique, in complete wilderness, surrounded by summits and stars in the Haut Guil natural reserve. Don't forget to reserve your stay in half-board on our web site or by telephone. On our web site you will also find information about evening concerts...
  • Tips
    If you'd like to find out more about mountain life... A guide and a companion will welcome you. You can always call on their services for an outing in the footsteps of Hannibal, an accompanied tour of Viso, a pass with too much snow, or an ascent of the giant Roi de Pierre, Mont Viso.
  • Ils s'engagent
    Set in a mountain pasture cirque at an altitude of 2460 m, the Viso Refuge welcomes backpackers.

    Its isolated location makes energy scarce, so stays are tinged with picturesqueness. When packing your bag, don't forget your headlamp: there's no electricity in the dormitories! While the sun provides some of the refuge's energy, to recharge a phone (there's no network) or a camera, you have to pedal a strange bicycle that drives a generator.

    Nonetheless, this Robinson aspect is anecdotal compared to the comfort of the refuge and the warmth of the welcome. The table is generous and comforting.
    Whether you're a hiker, mountain biker, climber or mountaineer, the Viso refuge in its mountain setting is a must.
