Hut to Hut Treks
On specific holidays (usually moderate to strenuous ones) some nights’ accommodation can only be at mountain huts (refuges). The ones we select provide clean accommodation with basic amenities and in many cases shared facilities. As there are no roads between these refuges and therefore are no baggage transfers available, it is sometimes necessary to bring a backpack along.
However, you will explore places not reachable by any other means and the rewards of a hut to hut trek are well worth the extra effort. And you can rest assured you will be returning to a comfortable hotel at the end of your journey.
