Located at 2,385 meters on a pasture terrace, at the southern foot of Piz Calandari, the mountain hut offers 30 dormitory beds with duvets.
In the midst of the Engadine mountain world, at 2,610 meters, surrounded by the mighty Bernina Massif. In spite of its sensational location in the heart of the High Alps, the hut, which is operated by the Swiss Alpine Club, can be easily reached in about 2 1/2 hours.
The hut is named after Albert Heim, the Alpine explorer, geologist and glaciologist. He became an honorary member of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC).
The dramatic climb begins at the floor of the wild, unspoilt Ferret valley. Three-and-a-half bracing hours later, you arrive at the Cabane de l’A Neuve, a hut spectacularly located on a rocky spur among snow-capped peaks.
