A word on \'HI-Wilderness Hostels\'

Get back to nature with \'HI\' network of wilderness hostels. They\'re a varied bunch! Some have lights powered by propane, some have rustic wood-burning saunas, at some you\'ll get electricity, and at others you\'ll get to pump your own water. But whatever you\'re after, these hostels with their simple comforts immerse you in the natural splendour of the Rockies.

You\'ll be able to savour true silence, night skies bursting with stars and the knowledge that some of the world\'s most magnificent outdoors is, really, just out the door. Dotted along the \'Icefields Parkway\', ad throughout the Parks, these hostels are set into pockets of trees, alongside creeks, or at the base of thousand-foot-high rock faces. Whether you get there by car, bike or on foot, your efforts are rewarded with some of the finer, simpler things in life - a warm fire, cozy lounges, and the chance to share food with new friends while you relive the day\'s adventures.
