In the winter, there is space for 12 people. Mattresses and bed covers are supplied but the hut is unstaffed and there is no gas or heating.
Accommodation can be booked on a half-board, B&B or bed only basis; there is also a lunch/snack menu on offer during the day. Please enquire directly with the refuge for this season's prices and opening/closing dates.
