Capanna Gorda

Come and discover GORDA UNDER THE STARS! You can sleep in a very special structure, equipped with large windows through which you can observe the starry sky!

The hut Gorda, located at 1800 m a.s.l., rises in a wide pasture above the houses of the Gorda Mountains.

The first hut was built of wood in 1965, then replaced in 2000 with the present building in brick and wood, on two floors, full kitchen, dining room, bathroom and shower modern and functional.
The owner of the hut is the Alpine Society Eagle's Nest (SANDA).

The view from the cabin is spectacular over the Adula and across the valley floor.

Since 2009, the hut is also equipped with a wind power plant.

You can reach the hut Gorda by road. From there you can do several beautiful hikes: Passo Bareta, Pian di Nara-Leontica, Bassa Nara-Leventina, Punta di Larescia (also known as Cima di Gorda or "Pilon"), where the Nido d'Aquila refuge is located.
For those unfamiliar with the area, obtain the map of the place (national map Olivone 1253) or ask the appropriate maps at the Tourist Office in Olivone.

The new path that leads from Gorda to Nara arrives at the Nara 2nd station of the chairlift.
