THE REFUGE

Canziani Refuge is located in a lateral valley of  D’Ultimo Valley  in a wonderful place on the banks of Green Lake.  Built in 1969, it was named after Umberto Canziani, a brave Alpine officer,  who died in 1915 at Vrsic .  He was a member of our association and a founder of  Ski Club CAI Milano.

 

HOW TO REACH THE REFUGE

From Lana m 316 continue to San Pancrazio m 736, Santa Valpurga m 1131, Lago di Zoccolo, San Nicolò,  and arrive at Santa Gertrude D’Ultimo m 1504, entrance to Stelvio National Park. The road continues up to the dam of Fontana Bianca Lake (1879 m) and the parking lot near ENEL Hydroelectric Center.

From here, follow a comfortable path (nr 140) among pastures and woods, later becoming steeper to climb above tree level, and continuing on rocks ond stones up to Green Lake Barrier.  A narrow road leads  to  Enel Cable Car Upper Station  and then to the refuge (2 h).
