At 2,236 metres, the Rifugio Mario Fraccaroli is the highest in the Piccoli Dolomiti, just below Cima Carega. Up there, you have a 360-degree view, and, with a bit of luck, on a clear day if you look to the south-east you can see the sea. Although the refuge is in Trentino, it’s owned by the Verona branch of CAI (Italian Mountaineering Club), who, in 1952, had a “high altitude house” built for the many climbers and walkers who come up from the plain whenever they can and find in the “Little Dolomites” the nearest vertical rock faces. Open From 15 June to 20 September During the winter, only upon reservation, for groups Walks Cima Carega is a few minutes’ walk from the refuge without any particular difficulties.
