Each of our huts is inspired by an adventure or special place to us.  Please read below for the inspiration of Glamping Hut Cortina.

The Dolomite Mountains of Northern Italy inspired this glamping hut.   The Dolomites rise dramatically as you drive north from the marshy flatlands of Venice.  The heart of the region is Cortina d’Ampezzo, which hosted the 1956 Olympics and several James Bond filming sequences.  Cortina is a great home base to recharge in luxury after spending several days of hiking in the surrounding mountains and “roughing” it in the numerous refugio’s, or remote mountain huts which are scattered across the region.

The rocky crags and breath-taking views, reached by a highly developed network of trails, offer a wide range of hiking options, from roped-in vertical ascents to gentle meandering through alpine meadows. We are still amazed at how the Italians were able to bring rustic luxury into such remote and beautiful regions.  We had hiked for more than two hours into the heart of the mountains.  The trail was rugged, rocky and very steep.  We had passed only two other hiking parties the entire morning.   The last pass that we crossed offered a spectacular view across a high valley where we spotted a remote refugio perched on the side of a small lake.  It looked like a perfect place for a quick lunch before beginning the return trip back into town.

Being the only customers, we had our choice of any of the three lakeside tables.  The menu was small, with only four different selections.  But since I had seen a large trout scurry away from my shadow when I sat down at the table, I thought that I’d order the fish….it should be pretty fresh.  After taking our orders, the waiter took the menu’s inside and promptly returned to the edge of the lake with a fishing rod in hand and a cigarette hanging from his lips.  He cast deep into the center of the lake and looked over at us and smiled.  Within five minutes he had hooked a large trout.  After reeling it in, he held it up for me to inspect.  “Good?” he asked.  I nodded and laughed.

We hope that your stay at Wild Yough brings you some equally memorable camping meals.  Enjoy your stay!
