Alpe Bonze Mountain hut / 1.860 m / Alpe Bonze - Vallone del Fer / Donnas

This establishment is located in the upper part of the Vallon di Fer (Fer Valley) in a basin surrounded by the peaks of Mont Bo, Chimes des Chamois, Bec of Striae, Cima Bonze, Cima Battaglia and Bec Renon. These last 4 form the watershed crest of the Piedmont border. The facility is formed of three buildings obtained from the renovation of the ruins of a mountain pasture. The main building features a dining room, kitchen and three dormitories with three bathrooms. A second two-storey building houses the technical installations and the winter room. The third building is for the Manager including an extra dormitory. The three buildings are arranged around a large boulder. The entire area up to the crests is part of a special natural reserve for the protection of birds which includes the territory of 15 municipalities from Charvensod to Donnas.


From the town of Donnas, reached through the state highway 26 or with the A5 motorway TO-AO (Turin-Aosta), with exit at Quincinetto or Pont-St-Martin, head towards the hamlet of Gran Vert using the motorway underpass and the bridge over river Dora. Just before Gran Vert, on the right near a playground, you will take the hill road to Vert, and you will see a sign bearing the indication ‘Rifugio Alpe Bonze m. 1860 open/closed’.

Drive along the Hill Road of Vert up to the pastures of Visey, about 11 km, ignoring the prohibition of transit in Prapousaz (no permission to transit will be required). Park at the roadside and walk along the new road and through the Alpine pastures of Barat, Montat and Caroussa and finally reaching the pasture Bonze where the refuge is located.
