We were on our way to Rifugio Nuvolau and decided to hike up the top of Averau. Great little Ferrata and scramble to the top, and the food at Rifugio Averau was great!

A great hike up the mountain. Sleep in Nuvolau. When walking up the mountain dont forget to look back from time to time. You'll see the 5 torri, the Tofane and even a glimpse of the wonderful refuge on top of Lagazuoi. A great hike, with great stay and good meal. Note that there's no shower on Nuvolau.

I go quite often in Cortina and i practice a lot of mountain sport. I simply love 5 torri area, i think Averau and Nuvolau are the most beautiful mountain, in all the seasons! You can't miss this place.

We stayed for 1 night at the Averau this summer. On our three previous visits, we had eaten at the restaurant but this was our first overnight stay. It was great fun. The food is terrific. The room was nicely furnished and the bathroom was extremely good. The whole facility was renovated just a few years ago so everything is... More

I cannot praise the Rifugio Averau too highly. My wife and I recently spent 7 nights there and it was fantastic. The staff are charming (thank you Max and Sandro), the rifugio is spotlessly clean, and the location is stunning. We were lucky enough to stay in Room 4 which has an ensuite bathroom and a balcony with glorious views.... More

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... More
