Rifugio Bonatti is a mountain hut located at the foot of the Grandes Jorasses, set directly opposite the magnificent Fréboudze glacier. It can be reached in just over an hour from Val Ferret by traversing larch woods and alpine meadows. The Rifugio Bonatti’s location is truly a “balcony” of the Mont Blanc massif, offering visitors breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

The Rifugio Bonatti is a perfect destination for hikers, mountaineers, and outdoor enthusiasts. It is an ideal base for exploring the area and offers all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. The hut is well equipped, offering hot showers and bed linen for a comfortable stay. With a capacity of a few dozen beds, the hut is perfect for both large and small groups of people.

It is important to note that the Rifugio Bonatti is a popular destination during the summer months and it’s recommended to book your spot well in advance. The hut is open from June to September, and visitors can also enjoy the area during the shoulder seasons with the possibility to contact the hut for out-of-season openings.
