WORLDWIDE

self explanatory.

Czech Republic and Slovakia are the most densely covered on this site, quite a lot can be found in Austria or Italy as well. Curiously, they include a list of shelters in Nepal and huts in Finland. The listings are sorted by types, each includes a brief description, a list of equipment, a map of surroundings, information about water source/supply, way of access and the most convenient visit time.

Similar to the website above, in German about some mountain huts in the world.

UNITED KINGDOM

 http://www.mountainbothies.org.uk/

They are referred to as 'bothies' within the UK. Most of these bothies are in Scotland under the care of the Mountain Bothy Assoication(A voluntary run organisation who maintain these shelters). You can find these bothies by checking their website.

DENMARK

 http://shelterapp.dk

"They are referred to as 'shelters'. There are many within Denmark and there are two useful resources for finding them. The first is the website. The second is a free mobile app called 'Shelter'. It's in Danish and pinpoints the locations of the shelters on a map and provides general info on each one."

AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, CANADA, USA & UK

 http://www.wikicamps.co

WikiCamps apps are maps with pinpointed locations of free designated camping areas which have varying facilities. (free trial with Android; I believe it costs with iOS)

ESTONIA

 http://www.loodusegakoos.ee/en

"In Estonia we have two types of shelters: houses and huts. First ones require "key money" and booking, although the huts are free, and you have to make room for everyone who wants to stay there aswell. Most of them should be visible on this site."

FRANCE

 http://www.refuges.info/

Here is a website where people are adding the information they find about shelters and also water points etc..however its only in French. Since it is located in maps that is very easy to understand. Generally, the "refuges non gardés" are the free ones. There are infos about other countries as well. But I guess that is not very complete since travellers themselves are filling the infos
