featured in Mountain huts Updated

The Refuge Cosmique is situated at 3,613 metres and is open throughout the summer months with 148 beds and 10 beds available throughout the winter.

Thirty minutes from the Aiguille du Midi, it's a frequently used hut in the Mont Blanc massif. Reservations for the Refuge des Cosmiques can be made by telephone only.

Accommodation can be booked on a half-board or breakfast only basis. Blankets are provided in both the winter and the summer months but for hygiene reasons you should bring your own sheet or sleeping bag liner. You are allowed to bivouac nearby.

Please enquire directly with the refuge for this season's prices and opening/closing dates.


To access the refuge, once at the top of the Aiguille du Midi lift station, take the roped narrow ridge route out of the station. When the ridge gets wider, turn to the Col du Midi on your right. You should then be able to see the hut which is located in the rocks under the Aiguille du Midi.
