Mt Edith Cavell International Hostel

Hostel in Icefields Parkway

Sitting in the foothills of one of the Rockies' most sublime mountain peaks, this hostel enjoys phenomenal views from the deck and outdoor firepit. The kitchen and common room have wooden beams and homey touches. There's solar electricity but no flush toilets, showers, phone or wi-fi. It's located directly across the road from the trailhead for the Tonquin Valley.

There's a manager here from June to October but the hostel is open for cross-country skiers from February to May on a key-collect system. Guests have use of showers at the main hostel in Jasper.
