A hike that's worth every step. A voyage of discovery through the wild nature of the Soladino valley.
To get to the start of this tour, you first need to cross the suspension bridge over the river Maggia in Someo. After a short stretch along the river, you come to a rock face – the first challenge.
Although the red-and-white waymarked path features large numbers of steps, it presents no real problems and leads along the cliffs in the forest. The ascent is rapid and you soon follow a path that penetrates deep into the Soladino valley. You traverse the Alpe Corte di Sotto then the Corte di Fondo di Alzasca, after which it's a long, gentle ascent to the Alzasca refuge.
Reward yourself for your exertions with a refreshing drink as you bask in the views from the terrace in front of the refuge. It's attended from late May until mid-October and is self-catering the rest of the year.
