HI Beauty Creek is a rustic facility with mind blowing views. Sit by the fire pit and look upriver to the glaciers or hang out on the dock in the pond. This charming location has just been improved with the addition of a new dorm building and is an excellent stopping point along the Icefields Parkway. We welcome groups of up to 20.

Groups Information

We took our annual May long weekend trip to Jasper in the Northern Rocky Mountains and rather than stay at an expensive hotel, we chose to check out the Athabasca Falls Wilderness Hostel. What an awesome surprise it was!

Tanya Koob, Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies is a wilderness hostel, not a Hilton and this all adds to the charm of the place. The hostel is in a beautiful location next to the river and there are hammocks and picnic table so people can enjoy the peace. 

Just behind the hostel is a nice area with a gorgeous view and a nice stream. Had the weather been nicer we would've enjoyed walking up and down it a bit more.


It took some work to get the heat on but the rest of the experience was fantastic. Endless hiking options, relaxing evenings by the river, and some great stargazing at night.

Great Canadian Road Trip Tips

HI hostels  are all over the country at ideal stopping points. With a hostel, you’ll get a comfy place to sleep, kitchen facilities to help you feed yourself while sticking to a budget, hot showers and you’ll still get to meet other backpackers along the way (and maybe pick up a new passenger), which is a heck of a lot better than trying to sleep in your car.
