What you need to know

If you're not familiar with our wilderness hostels, take a minute to get to know them. They're a varied bunch. Many of them sit just off the Icefields Parkway, or not too far away so they're easy to get to by car. Simplicity reigns here, and most of these hostels don't have electricity or running water (some do, though). They sit at the foot of mountains, along picturesque rivers and creeks and among some of the most stunning parts of the world (we're biased), which you can reserve all to yourself.
