Rooms & Beds
HI Mount Edith Cavell is the perfect spot for groups seeking adventure. In the summer, set out on any of the many trailheads for all levels. In the winter, the hostel is accessible by a mild and stunning 12km cross-country ski or snowshoe trip. The hostel has two 16-bed dormitories, an inviting fire pit and a spacious kitchen for group use.
HI-Mount Cavell Hostel is also a great launching point for more backcountry adventures.
Gorgeous views and cozy, family style accommodations. Loved the rugged living. James made our stay comfortable and we loved meeting new friends.
Shared a night lying on benches by a fire to see a meteor shower will live long in the memory. As will sharing a BBQ with James and fellow guests
