While mountain lodges play an important role in mountain safety, they are also built to offer superb views of the surrounding mountains. The friendly staff are waiting to welcome tired hikers after a long day’s walk.
It is advisable to aim to reach your destination lodge by about 4 p.m. To prevent accidents in the mountains, it is important to allow time for your physical condition to recover. Late arrival can be a nuisance to other climbers, so please try to observe the rules and manners.

Due to their role in mountain safety, mountain lodges have a policy of never refusing accommodation, even if no reservation has been made. However, to help with the preparation of bedding, food, and room assignments, lodges do request that guests make an advanced reservation whenever possible. Even after booking, do not push yourself to reach the lodge neglecting your poor health or bad weather, which may lead to an accident. Whenever you change your plans and no longer intend to stay at a mountain lodge, please contact the lodge as soon as possible.

In peak climbing season, it can sometimes be difficult to contact the lodges due to busy lines. If that is the case, please try to call back later. Additionally, some of the phone numbers for lodges will not connect in winter when the lodges are closed.
