Easy trekking in Valmalenco to the Zoia refuge

The Rifugio Zoia is located in a strategic position … on the alpine landscape of Valmalenco , a splendid valley of the Valtellina.

The refuge can be reached by car (in winter you can use chains, you slip a lot because of the steep road) and the car park is below the shelter. From here start beautiful breathtaking excursions to do alone or thanks to events organized by the managers of the refuge.

From here you can quickly reach the Campo Moro basin and from there continue to the Alpe Gera basin and the Bignami refuge (a bit more tiring)

It is easier to reach the Rifugio Cristina in about 1 hour walk.

The refuge is located at 2021 meters , in the heart of the Bernina Group , on a small hill that offers a unique view of the mountains and the valley, but at the same time is just 5 minutes walk from the parking lot, where the road ends. The refuge is a crossroads of different paths that allow you to reach, with varying levels of difficulty, the most interesting places in Valmalenco. Visit the site
