Perfect for back packing or just a weekend away very affordable and the staff is amazing. Well worth staying in this hidden get, tucked away in the heart of the mountains. . And close to many hiking trails and new adventures

About
Description
HI-Nordegg, Shunda Creek Hostel is a favourite for hikers, climbers and mountain bikers. Located in the heart of the David Thompson Corridor, this four-season destination provides the perfect setting for More individuals, families, groups and outdoor enthusiasts seeking exceptional recreational opportunities.The area offers some of the most diverse scenery, flora, fauna and history in the Alberta Rocky Mountains. You can visit the Siffleur wilderness area, Abraham Lake, North Saskatchewan river, Kootenays Ecological reserve and so much more. Take a short drive on the Forestry Trunk road and you're in a whole other area. You can take the Forestry Trunk Road north to Edson Hwy 16 or south to just west of Cochrane Hwy 1A. But be aware this is a graveled highway and can be rough at times.HI-Nordegg is located just out of the Banff National Park, so you don't have to pay park fees. There is a whole lot of FREEdom out here. Less
