This mountain looks impenetrable when you view it from the top of the chair lifts, but there is a great Via Ferrata route up which isnt too long and gives a real sense of achievement. It is just hard enough to be enjoyable without being too difficult. There are great views all around from the top as this rocky slab... More

We were on our way to Rifugio Nuvolau and decided to hike up the top of Averau. Great little Ferrata and scramble to the top, and the food at Rifugio Averau was great!

A great hike up the mountain. Sleep in Nuvolau. When walking up the mountain dont forget to look back from time to time. You'll see the 5 torri, the Tofane and even a glimpse of the wonderful refuge on top of Lagazuoi. A great hike, with great stay and good meal. Note that there's no shower on Nuvolau.

I go quite often in Cortina and i practice a lot of mountain sport. I simply love 5 torri area, i think Averau and Nuvolau are the most beautiful mountain, in all the seasons! You can't miss this place.

Gnocchis are unbelievable... Best in the world to me. The Appel strudle is delicate Sweet service by a discrete and nice family.

We stayed for 1 night at the Averau this summer. On our three previous visits, we had eaten at the restaurant but this was our first overnight stay. It was great fun. The food is terrific. The room was nicely furnished and the bathroom was extremely good. The whole facility was renovated just a few years ago so everything is... More

I cannot praise the Rifugio Averau too highly. My wife and I recently spent 7 nights there and it was fantastic. The staff are charming (thank you Max and Sandro), the rifugio is spotlessly clean, and the location is stunning. We were lucky enough to stay in Room 4 which has an ensuite bathroom and a balcony with glorious views.... More
