Shepherd's Huts in
Friuli Venezia Giulia

Opening period: June - September

What to expect

A Friulian setting in which alpine dairy farmers have always raised dairy cows and produced the typical cheeses. Going up to the malga means getting lost in the green, in contact with nature, with flowers, insects, animals. In Friuli Venezia Giulia there is the opportunity to visit many malghe, most of which can be reached by car via winding mountain roads. You can admire the different breeds of cattle, learn about the tools of the dairyman, and taste malga products. There is almost always an agritourism in the malghe, and in some malghe it is possible to stay overnight, taking part in the life of the malga and its rhythms, to fully experience it together with its inhabitants: the shepherd, the herdsman, and the dairyman.
