This is the third structure to be known by this name. The building was prefabricated and air-dropped onto the site at the north side of Franz Josef Glacier in 1950. It was upgraded in 1992, and during subsequent staff visits. A new toilet was installed in 1995.
It's of a few examples of a distinctive type of hut built between the packing and helicopter eras.
The maintenance of Almer Hut is supported by Franz Josef Glacier Guides.
$20 per night.
Backcountry Hut Passes and Backcountry Hut Tickets cannot be used at this hut.
