Rifugio Graffer can be reached from Campo Carlo Magno, Val Rendena, in 2 hours of walking along a forest road. Alternatively, you can take the Grostè cable car, which again from Campo Carlo Magno climbs to the Grostè Pass and from there descends in 20 minutes along the SAT 301 trail to the refuge. The Refuge can also be reached from Madonna di Campiglio, Val Rendena. From the village one drives to Loc. Vallesinella and continue on foot along SAT trails 382 and 331 that lead to the refuge in 2:15 hours of walking. Alternatively, from the village you drive to the Spinale cable car that takes you to the top of Mt. Spinale and continue on foot for 45 minutes along the SAT 331 trail.
