The Monte Rosa is the second highest mountain in Europe. It is a part of the Alpi Pennine, is situated on the border between Italy and Switzerland and has 14 summits over 4000 meter.
Punta Dufour is the highest one and is 4,634 metres. On the top of Punta Gnifetti, which is the fifth highest summit, you can find the Margherita Mountain Hut (4,554 metres). This hut is the highest in Europe, it was originally built in 1892 as a scientific and meteorologic observatory and rebuilt in 1975.

Today it is still used as a scientific observatory but it is mainly used as a Mountain hut.  When you reach it you can enjoy some good food, a unique landscape and a good bed for the night.

One of our Guides will be happy to guide you up there. You don’t need to have any particular mountaineering knowledge. The climb itself will be a small course, and an unforgetable experience!
