Yes, that’s exactly what those who venture to the top of Val San Nicolò, on the slopes of Col Ombert, think, where words leave room for the silence of the mountain, where thoughts turn into emotions, where what leaves you breathless isn’t the fatigue but the beauty of what surrounds you…
It’s in this slice of paradise that the Rifugio Passo san Nicolò (2340m) is nestled, guarded by the Col Ombert and surrounded by the most beautiful summits of the Dolomites, UNESCO heritage: from here you can admire the splendid Rosengarten group, the majesty of the Sella, the Pordoi, and the Marmolada that burns to the sunrise…
The Rifugio Passo San Nicolò still remains true to its origins. During its restructure, the Planchensteiner family chose to keep its traditional style so as to offer customers all the genuineness and simplicity of mountain life without compromising the quality of the service.
Fatigue is extreme… hunger is proportionate to fatigue… so sit down and enjoy some of our typical and abundant dishes made of simple flavors, from traditional recipes of old…
We offer you the chance to stay overnight to enjoy an experience that will leave an indelible memory on your vacations: dine with the embrace of sunset, wake up at dawn and marvel at the natural phenomenon of the sea of clouds. If you’re lucky you could meet some of the marmots and Roebucks running through the meadows.
The hut has room for 5/7 beds for a total of 24 people. We recommend using a sleeping bag and/or liner. The bathroom is on the floor.
Booking is recommended.
Rifugio Passo San Nicoló is the starting point for the Kaiserjäger route that leads up to Col Ombert, at 2670m high. Built in 1915 by Kaiserjäger – a light infantry unit of the Austro-Hungarian Empire – still has some warship remains. The via ferrata, restored in 1996, has a medium to difficult difficulty level.
