“Lovely hike near the passo Falzarego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

My wife and I recently hiked around Averau mountain starting from the car park at the Refugio Col Gallina. The views from the trails were magnificent . We followed trail 419 until it merged with 441, which we followed to Rifugio Averau. From here there is a great view of Cinque Torri. For our return, we took trail 440, although there are several alternate routes. This hike took approximately 4 hours with a fair amount of uneven and rocky portions. Overall an excellent hike with great scenic views

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We arrived without a reservation which is, apparently, not a good idea but managed to get a table after a short wait and it was well worth it. This was undoubtedly the best mountain restaurant food that we have eaten in 25 years of skiing.

“My Favourite in Cortina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The pastas are sublime - think pheasant lasagne made on egg crepes or the classic local beet root ravioli with freshly grated parmigiana! A glass of house red and a view to die for - I've found my niche!

I've skied in Cortina 3 times and eaten at Averau 6 times - the quality or welcome have never varied - can't wait to come back.....

“Averau Mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2008

Averau mountain is situated near Cortain. It is possible to get there via a bus or car using the road that goes up the Pocol hill.

The mountain offers a day hiking trip of 4-5 hours of amazing moutain scenery. While it's not extremely dangerous there are some parts with narrow paths that requires to hold onto iron bars so I advise coming with something to tie yourself to the bars. It is possible to take a shorter route which is a bit safer but the scenery is not as amazing as the original route.

At the summit of the mountain there is a small house. It is possible to have a drink or eat something there and even recommended.

For more information on the route you may want to visit:
