Special features & EventsHaving been subject to refurbishing in 2012 by the Club Alpin Sierre, today the Cabane Illhorn is even more attractive with reclining chairs, lounge and live music. However, old elements have been lovingly preserved - and magnificent views of the five 4000 and more meter-high peaks remain the same!
The hut lies at a 30-minute walking distance from Chandolin. It’s located on the path of three snowshoe trails and skiing slopes too - with return journeys to the valley possible by sled.
