Lagazuoi Area – 5 Torri – Giau Pass
Climbing and via ferrata routes
The Averau refuge is a starting and support point for many climbing ascents and via ferrata routes, of all degrees of difficulty. Classic are the Ferrata Averau and the Ferrata de Ra Gusela, quite easy and very scenic. Climbers can try their hand at the climbing routes of Mount Averau, the large open-air gym of 5 Torriand the new rock climbing wall Averau Sud “Renè De Pol” palestra Averau sud – Renato De Pol Renè.
To experience the mountain safely, Rifugio Averau has an agreement with the Alpine Guides of Cortina d’Ampezzo, who offer specific itineraries and many other activities.

Alta Via no. 1
The Alta Via No.1, known as“the classic”,crosses the imposing peaks of the Dolomites starting from Lake Braies,in the province of Bolzano, to Belluno, along a route of about 150 kilometers.
The route starts from the Dolomites of Braies and crosses the “Strada delle Dolomiti” overlooking the valley of Cortina d’Ampezzo from above, near the 5 Torri and the Nuvolau.

The hut is a stop or refreshment point for all various routes of the mountain-bike Transalp Dolomiti.
On the most classic route, the stage starts from the Sennes, Fanes and Braies Natural Park and winds under the Tofane. Arriving in Cianzopè, the route begins to climb on a rather demanding climb in the shadow of 5 Torri.
During the First World War, the 5 Torriarea proved to be strategic for the operations of the Italian Army, trying to penetrate into Val Badia.
In this area the events of that sad period can still be experienced, among paths, trenches and the Open Air Museum of the Great War.
In front of the Averau Refuge there are also 4 information panels that tell the story and events in Nuvolau Forcella during the First World War.
Dinners with jeep ride
For an unforgettable evening, we recommend our organized dinners, with jeep shuttle and night descent: the starry sky at high altitude will give you a unique emotion.
