Capanna Quarnei lies at the foot of the highest peak in Ticino, the Reinwaldhorn (Mt. Adula, 3402), and enjoys an unparalleled view on the still very much virgin Malvaglia Valley. It is reacheable on foot starting from the Dagro cableway station (4h) or from the parking area in Cusié (1h30) and it is the starting point for different hikes to alpine lakes or to various peaks, including several three-thousanders.
From the Capanna Quarnei you can climb the Adula peak (3402 mt.) taking for example the «Via Valle Malvaglia» (4h, T6) or else the «Via dell'Amicizia” (5h, rock climbing). You can also reach other Huts (Capanna Adula UTOE and CAS, Motterascio, Bovarina, Scaletta,
Terry) and start trekks through the Valle di Blenio and the Greina.
The architecture of the Capanna Quarnei is of particular interest. It has 58 beds available in dorms and offers half pension at a moderate price from June through October, with special offers for groups and families. At lunch you can savour delicious meals: homemade typical
regional dishes (such as gnocchi, polenta, lasagna, alp cheese or cakes) prepared with local organic products.
