mountain hut in La Val

The best place to eat and relax between Dolomites and Heaven

Ütia da Rit mountain hut in Alta Badia is located in an amazing territory, among the most famous Dolomites Peaks, and it is an important refreshment point for tourists and travelers. Our mountain hut is in the small village of La Val ("La Valle") at 2000 meters altitude, at the gates of the beautiful Natural Park of Fanes-Sennes-Braies. Our guests can enjoy here the typical South Tyrolean cuisine and wines, both inside and outside the hut. Our tasty but healthy menu offers cold starters, traditional alpine soups, home-made pasta, meat and egg plates, as well as tasty desserts…

No vehicles or noise will disturb your stay: you will enjoy the quietness and the beauty of the Dolomites and restore you heart and soul. The visitors can reach us on foot or riding a mountain bike on one of the trails from the valley. It’s an easy one-hour uphill walk, suitable for families with children or stroller, too.

In a privileged location
at 2000 meters altitude

An entire territory to discover, walking or riding a mountain bike

"Ütia" means shelter in Ladin, while "Rit" refers to the place where we are, which is La Val ("La Valle") in Alta Badia, a small village of about 1400 inhabitants at the borders of Fanes – Sennes – Braies Natural Park. We are at 2000 meters altitude, surrounded by some of the most important Peaks of the Dolomites, such as: Sasso Croce, Punta 9 and Punta 10, Sasso Putia, Marmolada, Puez e Lavarella. In this territory the tourists have the chance to explore the mountains walking or riding a mountain bike and can easily find refreshment points on the way.

Our mountain hut is easily recognizable, thanks to its typical aspect of mountain cottages, old barns or local little houses, with circular fir trunks outside, roof with photovoltaic panels, larch interior cladding, sturdy tables and chairs… Many paths around our hut lead to higher places, like Piz de Pares or Crusc da Rit.
