Avoid nasty surprises…
To book a night in a mountain refuge :
Don't forget to book your night at least 48 hours before your arrival !
In summer, we advice you to book it earlier.
Opening periods :
Opening period depends on each refuge : refuges are generally guarded from the begining of june to the end of september.
But even during the non-guarded period (from october to may), a small part of the building is always opened, with some beds to spend the night.
