2023 Opening dates

We will be open on: May 25th and 26th – June 1st, 2nd – every day from June 15th to September 20th. The following weekends will depend on the weather.

Rifugio G. Angelini Sora 'l Sass

Rifugio Angelini is a small, welcoming structure in perfect harmony with the landscape, positioned in a very pictoresque location on the wooded plateau of the impressive Spiz di Mezzodì.

The building originally served as a shelter for lumberjacks and shepherds and was recently renovated to become a lodge for visitors and guests.

You can get to Rifugio Angelini from the village of Forno di Zoldo driving by car to the village of Baron, then taking a hike up a narrow walking trail towards the refuge.

The best panoramic view in Val di Zoldo known as the Belvedere is a little more than an hour’s walk from the Rifugio Angelini. From this spot take some of the most spectacular Dolomitic peaks including Civetta, Pelmo, Antelao and the Bosconero peaks.

You can access several hiking trails from Rifugio Angelini on the northern side of the Spiz including the Zoldano Ring, a long hiking trail in the wonders of Val di Zoldo.

The Management

We walk together: each telling the other about his life, his dreams, his ambitions.

Who would have thought that from these lighthearted chats this adventure would start….

Four friends with the same passion: mountains, a way of life, a refuge.

Andrea and Michela decide to leave their certainties behind and give it a try thanks to the support of Alex and Cristina.

A healthy, simple and authentic management project is born: to preserve this enchanted place in the midst of wild nature.

Managers

Andrea: Tireless dreamer and sports enthusiast; he forgets bread and ingredients in order to run through the mountains
Michela: for her, cakes are the cure to every stress; simple, joyful and in love with what surrounds her

Coworker

Cristina: for her, the kitchen is the laboratory of experiments, transmitting serenity even on the hardest Sundays
Alex: Forestry technician by profession but at Sora 'l Sass can sell schnapps to teetotalers: "moderator"
