Anterne, it is the center of the Sixt nature reserve, so we have set up an eco-responsible refuge: sorting waste, certain short-circuit purchases, labeled cleaning products, packaging in recycled material ...
The adaptation to the 2020 rules results in a decrease in the capacity of the refuge from 55 places to 33 this year and in the obligation for hikers to come with their personal sleeping bag.
Everything has been organized on site to ensure the separation between groups or families in the dormitories and the dining hall by fairly simple rules.
Catering during the day is made easier by being on the outdoor terrace.
The reservation which was strongly advised becomes compulsory.
It is possible to bivouac and to reserve your dinner and breakfast.
