Baita del Capriolo Hut

The Baita del Capriolo Hut is located on the western shore of the broad artificial basin of the Lei Valley.
You can reach it in two ways.

By car

Going down the Spluga Pass to the Grisons Canton reaching Splügen and Avers, then going over the Ferrera Valley.
Not far from the village Innerferrera (1480mt) there is a crossroads, which, on the right hand, goes up to a tunnel; going on, the custom and a parking space in front of the dam are found.
The tunnel is only open from May to November, from 5 A.M. to 10 P.M.
The dam (see picture below), built in the ‘50s, is 690mt long and 173mt high, and serves as barrier to the Reno di Lei, one of the rivers that form the Reno.
After having crossed the dam, keeping the right, it takes 15 minutes by walk to reach the hut.

By walk

it takes 4/5 hours: starting from hut Chiavenna and going over Angeloga Pass (2391mt), or taking the cableway in Madesimo to Groppera and then going down, in about one hour on foot.

At the hut a bike can be rented to easily ride along the road, which skirts the western shore of the lake, about 10km long.
