The Quarzina Hiking Hut is located at 1347 asl in the Ligurian Alps, in the sunniest hamlet of the Municipality of Ormea (Cn). It can be reached via a comfortable paved road open all year round or via a dense network of pedestrian and cycle paths that connect it to the other hamlets. Located along the red itinerary of the Via Alpina, it is a stage stop on the Balconata di Ormea, an ideal starting point for summer and winter ascents of Pizzo di Ormea and the nearby Bric Conoia and Mongioie peaks, as well as natural access to the Marguareis Park. The internal room and the large summer terrace enjoy a breathtaking view of the Val Tanaro, Colle di Nava and the Ligurian Sea.
