Does mountain hiking fill you with awe? Conquer the jagged peaks of barren and beautiful Patagonia, or explore the summits of the Canadian Rockies surrounded by soul-stirring scenery.

Are you an adrenaline junkie seeking outdoor thrills? Queenstown, New Zealand welcomes you with plunging bungies and black water rafting. Or is wildlife more your thing? Hop over to the great outdoors in Australia, one of the most bio-diverse nations in the world, where you can find plants and animals which don't exist anywhere else on the planet.
We have hostels in the most unlikely, remote, jaw-achingly epic and photogenic natural settings. From log cabins in Banff National Park, to Lighthouse stopovers perched on the cliffs of coastal California, to surf havens and safari lodges, now is the time to immerse yourself in nature and explore the great outdoors - and HI hostels are your purveyors of adventure.
