Huts – Shelters – Hotels
Huts, Shelters or Hotels?
In planning your hike in the Italian Alps, probably the main variable that you need to choose is the “accomodation”. You can either choose for a Hut to Hut or go for a Inn to Inn Hiking in the Alps. There are different options of where we can spend our night in the Alps with different level of comfort and services. This choice have to take into consideration the season, your experience and the costs. Sleeping in the Alps, and generally in the mountains is not easy sometimes as the altitude affect our breathing system and it is more hard to relax. To choose the right accomodation
in your Alps trekking tour is the first important step for understanding what kind of “mood” the trek will have.
There are basically three different options:
1. Unguarded Hut – Wild and Cheaper
2. Guarded Hut/Mountain Lodge – Wild and comfort
3. Bed and Breakfast/Inn– Comfort and privacy
在计划在意大利阿尔卑斯山的远足时，可能最需要您选择的变量就是“住宿”。 您可以选择 夜宿山间小屋的远足，也可以选择入住酒店的远足。 想在阿尔卑斯山上度过一整夜，我们 可以为您提供不同程度的舒适服务。做出这一选择也必须考虑季节，您的经验和成本因素。 由于海拔高度会影响我们的呼吸系统，因此有时在阿尔卑斯山以及一Ma般n在山区的na睡眠有时并 不容易，而且很难放松。 在您的阿尔卑斯山徒步旅行中选择合适的住宿是在旅行中拥有好 心情的第一步。
Unguarded Hut (Bivacco)
The Unguarded Hut is the more suggestive option. It is like a small one room house in the middle of the mountains, usually at more than 2500 meters(8000 feets). Moreover is the cheapes one so if you are alone in planning the hike or you want to limit the costs this will be the best options. Most of the experienced trekkers coming with me or the young guys at the first experience choose this option. Also for children can be a very nice option for a single night. Sleeping in an unguarded hut is a bit like doing a comfortable camping but with the big advantage that all the unguarded hut(bivacco in Italian) have beds, blankets and pillows. Usually they have also a table where to sit, pllay card and eat.
In the unguarded hut there is no toilet, no shower and we’ll need to carry a sleeping bag. The food is usually cooked by me but you’ll need to help me to carry as nothing is sold up there.
There are different kind of Unguarded hut and actually depending on the season not every hut is reachable. Between November and April most of the huts are fully covered by snow. Still it is almost always possible organizing a 2 days hike sleeping into the wild.
这一类山间小屋是我们更推荐的一种选择。它就像山区中的一间小房屋，通常在海拔 2500 米(8000 英尺)以上。此外，它价格便宜，因此，如果您独自一个人计划远足或希望限制 花销成本的话，这将是您的最佳选择。大多数和我一样有经验的徒步旅行者会与第一次体验 的年轻人一起选择这一选项。对于儿童来说，在此度过一整夜也是一个不错的选择。在无人 看守的小屋里睡觉有点像在露营，但最大的好处是所有山间小屋(意大利语 bivacco)都有 床，毯子和枕头。通常他们还有一张桌子，可以用来简单的进行晚餐。
我们有各种不同类型的山间小屋，但这也取决于您想要徒步的季节，比如冬季就并非每个小 屋都可以到达。在 11 月至 4 月之间，大部分小屋都被白雪覆盖。但我们仍然有可能组织一 次为期 2 天的远足，并夜宿野外。
Guarded Hut / Mountain Lodge (Rifugio)
This is what in Italian is called Rifugio. In English you might call it Lodge or Mountain Shelter. Rifugio, like a Bivacco, is in the middle of the mountains and you can enjoy the night in the Italian Alps with a bit more of comfort as you will not need to bring any food as they serve dinner and breakfast, there is light, toilet, warming system. Also there is usually a Bar service so if you want to buy a beer or a genepy, the tipycal liquor of ther Italian Alps. Most of the shelter are open only during the summer(from July to first week of September) but some of them are opeoned all year long. The costs are pretty high as the food and every facilities are brought by elicopter.
In the Shelter you sleep in common room(sometimes 6-8 people sometimes 20) so anyway a bit of spirit of adventure is requiered. You need to bring a liner(light sleeping bag) or you will be able to rent it up there for around 5 euro. The rifugio is a good compromise for your alps trekking accomodation between comfort and wilderness.
意大利语称这种小屋为 Rifugio。在英语中，您可以将其称为“山间小屋”或“山顶庇护所”。 Rifugio 和 Bivacco 一样，都位于群山之中，您可以在意大利阿尔卑斯山度过一个舒适的夜暖 晚，这里有便餐，因此您不需要带任何食物，同时这里还有厕所和加热系统。此外，通常还会提供酒吧服务，因此，如果您想购买啤酒或者意大利阿尔卑斯山的典型烈性酒，这里都应 有尽有。多数庇护所仅在夏季(从 7 月至 9 月的第一周)开放，但有一些则全年开放。食物 和每项设施都是由直升飞机带来的，因此成本很高。
在这类山间小屋中，您可以睡在公共休息室(有时 6-8 个人，有时 20 个人)，因此无论如 何，这都需要一种冒险精神。您需要带一个轻便的睡袋，或者您花 5 欧元左右在那里租用睡 袋。 Rifugio 小屋是您想狂野且舒适地徒步旅行阿尔卑斯山的不二之选。
Bed and Breakfast – Hotel – Agriturismo – Mountain Inn
B& B 酒店(早餐加住宿酒店)– 酒店 – 山区农庄- 山区旅馆
The third option is the more comfortable one. Inn to Inn Hikin in the Alps is for those who do not want to leave the comfort at home. If you want your own privacy, with a room and the private toilet with shower this is the right option for you. The environment of the mountain village is also very suggestive and you can enjoy the culture of the mountains. The Accomodation can be a small hotel,
a bed and breakfast or an Agriturismo in the Mountains. The Italian Alps are still pretty populated even though it is hard in these days for youg people to find a job and the attraction of the city is strong. Nevertheless the traditions and the mountain culture is strong and you can enjoy delicious dinners in the local places. The options are many in this sense. There are 4 stars Inn with SPA but there are also very local place where to sleep in a family environment with an Italian Granmother cooking for you. Depending on the season it is possible to stay in different mountain area and location in the Italian Alps for your Inn to Inn Hiking Holidays.
这种选择毫无疑问是更舒适的选择。阿尔卑斯山中的夜宿旅馆是为那些不想离开如家一般舒 适分为的人而设计的。如果您希望更有私密性的空间，可以选择带淋浴和私人卫生间的房间 类型。同时山村里的环境也很给人启发，引人思考，您可以尽情享受山上的文化。您可以入 住这里的小型酒店，B & B 旅馆，或者是山区的农庄。
尽管最近这段日子这里的年轻人很难找到工作，并且大部分都走向了城市，但意大利阿尔卑 斯山地区仍然人口稠密，同时这里的习俗传统和山区文化仍然很浓厚，您可以在当地享用美 味的晚餐，感受传统的文化。从这个意义上讲，您有很多选择，比如 4 星级的 SPA 旅馆， 或者深入本地山区农庄，在家庭环境中享用意大利奶奶烹饪的美食。根据季节的不同，我们 会为您选择在阿尔卑斯山不同山区位置的旅馆，并为您制定旅游计划。
