Castore is a really nice snowy peak on the boundary line between Italy and Switzerland

1 nights from € 340


  • 20 June 2021 - 20 September 2021

From the Sella hut is not a long and difficult ascent; the last part follows a nice and curvy ridge that give to this ascent the right quantity of “pepper” to make it even more interesting.



  • 1st day:

Meeting with the guide in Staffal around 13:30p.m. - Equipment check. With the lift system, we arrive at Colle Bettaforca. From there we start the nice walking to the Q. Sella hut. The last part of the trail follows a nice rock ridge equipped with iron steps and ropes. We overnight in the hut.

Ascent: 3:30 hours - 850m

  • 2nd day:

Departure around 6:00 depending on the period of the year. At the beginning, the Felik glacier is not too steep and it helps us to warm up the legs. We easily arrive at the beginning of the steep slopes that goes up to the Felik Pass. Arrived to that pass we finally reach the nice ridge that we follow until the top of Castore. The descent goes along the same itinerary. We stop for lunch at the Sella hut, we repack and we go back to the lift station at Passo Bettaforca

Ascent: 3:30 hours 650m - Descent: 4-5 hours1500m
