Communications related to all sections of this guide

July 29th, 2020: The situation with the accommodation facilities along the trail goes towards normalization. Due to the corona virus emergency, some of them may still have reduced the availability of beds and request the mandatory use of your personal sleeping bag. It is strongly advisable to book and check availability directly with the various accommodation sites AT LEAST ONE DAY BEFORE YOUR EXPECTED ARRIVAL.

July 17th, 2020: With particular reference to large groups, it should be noted that the accommodation facilities on the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri are made up of small hotels, refuges, farmhouses, bed & breakfasts and / or other types of accommodations. Some of these may offer beds in shared dormitories and shared bathrooms. It may also be necessary to have your own sleeping bag and towel. We always suggest asking the manager / owner of the facility for details.

May 22nd, 2020: We advise hikers and bikers who intend to travel on the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri to check, directly with them, the opening and availability of the numerous accommodation facilities along the "on foot" and "by mountain bike" routes. In case of doubts call Alta Via Info H24 +39.338.16.29.347

June 14th, 2019: In section 2) the private refuge La Terza, which offers catering, WATER and drinks, is now available near the Sanremo Refuge.

February 2019: We suggest trekkers and bikers busy on the Alta Via to add a GPS to their equipment or, alternatively, to download an application on your mobile, that allows them to know and communicate their position (latitude and longitude) in case of need. One of these applications, free, is "GPS coordinates".

October 2018: Please note that only few accommodation facilities are able to accept electronic payements: bring enough cash with you!

June 2018: Voice calls ONLY to Alta Via Info H24 +39.338.16.29.347 - NO WhatsApp NO SMS
