The mountain huts you’ll encounter along the way may be small in size, but their managers are big of heart and will make you feel at home.
They have limited space for guests, but that’s just what you need to make new acquaintances and build friendships. There may not be hot water or all the creature comforts of the metropolis, but you can be sure of a great atmosphere.
Mountain huts have limited capacity, some can only accommodate 12 hikers. Booking your bed guarantees your overnight stay and helps the manager provide you with the best service possible.
The hut manager is like the father of a family – if it gets dark and you’ve not arrived, he will worry! If you decide to change plans, please, cancel your booking or let the manager know about anything unexpected.
There are no rubbish collection trucks in the mountains! Help the hut manager keep the environment clean and tidy. Take home your rubbish or any rubbish you may find along the way.
Single and double rooms don’t exist in mountain huts. So, it’s very likely you’ll have to share a room with other people. Meal-time is good to make new friends 🙂
Mountain huts do make the most of renewable energy sources to provide for all your basic needs, but they cannot use resources storing luxury foods or other non essential conveniences. Bear in mind too, that whatever you find in the hut hasn’t been brought from the corner shop. Very often it has been carried up by cable car or even on the hut manager’s back.
