Wilderness Season's Pass

Unlimited Overnights in the Wilderness

The Wilderness Hostel experience has long been a favourite with Canadian and International hostellers. Nothing compares to skiing or snowshoeing to a lodge in the middle of the pristine wilderness and being able to literally step into your skis and head off exploring for the day. Nights are memorable and mostly spent enjoying the company of old friends and new, cozying up by the fire or just enjoying the silence and night sky which is bursting with stars. The Wilderness Season's Pass allows you to stay as many times as you like at the Wilderness Hostels from November 1, 2016 until May 31, 2017. Other benefits of the pass include discounted stays at HI-Jasper, HI-Nordegg, HI-Banff Alpine Centre, HI-Lake Louise Alpine Centre and HI-Fernie.
