You can reach the house easiestly from Bagni del Masino (1172m) and after 928m elevation in 2-3 hours walking on well-marked easy to follow trail or footpath. Requires suitable equipment and fitness level.
Getting ThereGo 38 road from Lecco through Morbegno and turn left in Ardenno to Val Masino (San Martino). You can leave your car in the next „village” called Bagni del Masino. It is the end of this road.
