Capanna Margherita, Monte Rosa

Would you like to take part of a stunning high-altitude experience ni the Monte Rosa massif? Then join me for an amazing 2-ascent on Punta Gnifetti: let’s climb to the highest mountain hut in the Alps: Margherita!

Also known by its german name, Signalkuppe, Punta Gnifetti (in Italian) is a 4,554-meter peak that belongs to the Monte Rosa massif. Located in the Pennine Alps, on the border between Italy and Switzerland, this impressive mountain was first climbed in 1842.

On this 2-day mountaineering trip, we will reach the summit of Punta Gnifetti, where we will find the highest mountain hut of Europe: Capanna Regina Margherita (4,554m). Opened by Queen Margherita in 1893, it was completely restored in 1977.

The hut can only be accessed by foot. We will meet at Alagna Valsesia, the famous town of the Piedmont, in northern Italy. From the top of Punta Gnifetti we will enjoy breathtaking views of the south face of Monte Rosa, the beautiful valleys of Sesia and Po, and the impressive Matterhorn, with is awesome glacial scenery.

Climbing to the Margherita hut, one of the most coveted and exciting experiences for mountaineering lovers, requires a good fitness level. However, you do not need to be an expert high-altitude climber: this is a perfect chance to start using crampons and ice axes!
