Ferrino camps are located at 3000, 2000, and 1700 metres above sea level. 
Two in Italy - in Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta - and one in the Principality of Andorra, on the Pyrenees.

AN EXPERIENCE FOR OUR CUSTOMERS

Ferrino camps are open to those who want to try out the experience of a night at altitudes above 3000 metres, facing Monte Rosa or those who simply want to find out what it is like to sleep in a tent, immersed in nature, in complete safety and using our gear, which is supplied free.
