Just West of Calgary is Kananaskis Country.
Just west of Calgary nestled in the Canada Rocky Mountain foothills lies Kananaskis Country. Once a secret playground for Calgarians, transformed by the popularity of the 1988 Winter Olympics, Kananaskis Country is now recognized worldwide as an outdoor adventure destination.
Right Out Our Door.
The HI-Kananaskis Wilderness Hostel is close to over 60 mountain biking, hiking and cross-country ski trails. Wildlife sightings of chipmunks, bears, deer, coyotes and moose are common in the area. Away from the excessive light pollution of the city, look up to the night sky for a chance to view the milky way and thousands of stars on clear night.
Private and Shared Rooms.
Not only you can ease yourself into an "off-the-grid" experience, with power, hot water and indoor plumbing. You can do it privately in your own room or in the group setting of our dormitory rooms. There are a limited number of private rooms, reserve early to ensure a chance at a piece of simple privacy at this very popular hostel.
Affordable Accommodation for all Groups.
Take the opportunity to share uncommon experiences in common spaces with your family, friends, teams and groups at a reasonable rate. Many youth, church and outdoor groups enjoy renting out the entire property for multiple nights, please contact our groups department for more information on special group pricing. To add to your group experience, play a game of outdoor volleyball, relax by the indoor fireplace or build a campfire in our outdoor fire pit.
Reservations and Cancellations.
A credit card is needed when making reservations. Due to the lack of direct/reliable communication with the hostel, the Central Reservation Office is not able to make same day arrival reservations. Book ahead to avoid any disappointment as this smaller hostel is very popular both in winter and summer. 48 hours is required when cancelling individual reservations, please contact Central Reservations at 1.866.762.4122 (Toll Free) for more information.
