I'm going to be travelling near Ortisei for 4 nights from Aug 10-14th (yes, soon) and plan to do some hiking in the area. I have a B&B booked in St. Peter (refundable) but started reading about Rifugios and am very intrigued, and thought maybe i'd like to stay in one for a night or 2 or even more. I really have no idea where to start. There are a ton of Rifugios, and I'm not sure how best to plan my stay there. I'm inclined to just keep my reservation and do day hikes, stopping at the Rifugios for meals. Do you recommend picking one and staying there, using it as a base for day hikes, or hopping from one to the next? For hopping, do you reserve in advance or just book when you arrive? If reserving, how do you plan which ones you'll get to for the night? Would you have to map out a whole loop trail in advance? I'm leaning toward just keeping my reservation and day hiking because this seems complicated. But hoping people on here have some good advice on this, and on hiking in the region in general. BTW - I will have a car during my stay.
