gate is open and there is not a soul around. Still others block the road
and you just can't enter the campgrounds although the park itself can82
Facts for the Visitor - Accommodation still be visited. So, out of the
main summer season, you have to investigate but using the parks after
official closing can save the hardy a fair bit of money. There are also
campgrounds every 150km or so along the Trans Canada Hwy. Many people
travel around the country camping and never pay a dime. For those with
cars or vans, using roadside rest areas and picnic spots is recommended.
If there are signs indicating no overnight camping, don't do something
like set up a tent. If you're asleep in the car and a cop happens to wake
you, just say you were driving, got tired, pulled over for a quick rest
and fell asleep. For less chance of interruption, little side roads and
logging roads off the. Highway is quiet and private. Hostels There are
some excellent travellers’ hostels in Canada much like those found in
countries around the world. The term hostel in Canada, however, has some
unfortunate connotations for travellers as well as those running them
and working in them.
The term has long been and continues to be used in reference to both
government and private shelters for the underprivileged, sick and abused.
There are, for example, hostels for battered women who have been victimized
by their partners and hostels for recovering drug addicts. So, if you
get a sideways glance when you smilingly say you are on the way to spend
the night at the hostel, you'll know why. Indicating travellers’ hostel
or international hostel should help. There are two hostelling groups operating
in Canada geared to low-budget visitors. They represent the cheapest places
to stay in the country and are where you'll probably meet the most travellers.
Visitors to Quebec are sometimes surprised to find the mixed-sex dorms
common in Europe but not often seen elsewhere in Canada. Hostelling International
The oldest, best known and most established hostelling association is
Hostelling International (HI) Canada.
This national organization is a member of the internationally known hostelling
association. The hostels are no longer called youth hostels, although
they are sometimes still referred to in this way, but rather are known
simply as hostels. Through the text of this book these hostels are referred
to as HI Hostel. Their symbol is an evergreen tree and stylized house
within a blue triangle. HI Canada has about 70 hostels with members in
all parts of the country. Nightly costs range from $10 to $23 with most
around $16. At many, nonmembers can stay for an additional $2 to $5. A
membership can quickly pay for itself and has now been built into the
system so that after a few stays you automatically become a member. In
July and August space may be a problem at some Canadian hostels, particularly
in the large cities and in some of the resort areas such as Banff, so
calling ahead to make a reservation is a good idea.
