Welcome to our hostel

HI - Wentworth Hostel is located in the picturesque Wentworth valley. It is a must stop over for all travellers entering Nova Scotia and a great stop for the outdoor adventurer.

The hostel rents snowshoes and cross country skis to guests for a small charge (FREE for school groups) - the perfect opportunity, for novice and pro alike, to indulge in some winter sport. Afterwards, enjoy a bonfire in the hostel’s outdoor fire pit.

With the highest vertical in the province and the most skiable terrain in The Maritimes, Ski Wentworth offers great skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and a place to warm up. In the summer enjoy camping, swimming, waterfalls, cliff jumping, beaches, canoeing, kayaking, tidal bore rafting and hiking. If you hike to the top of the ski hill and follow the trail, you can see Prince Edward Island and the Confederation Bridge.
