GRAND HALTE – CITTA’ DI MORTARA HUT
In this hut you can find a sparkling atmosphere, innovative cuisine, and pleasant service.
Its construction dates back to the early 1900s, as a mountain hotel. For many years it has been an important point of rest during the climb to Col d’Olen and from here to Capanna Margherita and the peaks of Monte Rosa.
Its original building has been restored with attention, mantaining many of the old furnishings. The current result is the suggestion of a historic alpine restaurant combined with all the comforts to ensure a pleasant stay for guests. The bedrooms, all in wood and heated, have 2, 4 or 6 beds, and the proposed treatment is half board. Among the services we must mention good music, Wi-Fi, bathrooms on the floor with hot water and even a sauna!
The proposals of the kitchen enhance local products, but also play on the combination of other ingredients to form dishes and gourmet menus! The cellar offers wines from near and far territories and craft beers.
Grande Halte, also called Rifugio Città di Mortara, is located at Alpe Seewji. To reach it you can use the lifts in summer and in winter from Alagna to Pianalunga, at 2.046 meters above sea level. From here a dirt road will lead you to the hut in about 20 minutes.In summer, if you prefer to reach it by walking, you should follow path number 5 which starts from Alagna. Walking time is about 2 hours.
