Adapted Wilderness Adventure Program
Hostelling International is the worldwide association of Youth Hostels. We are a charity with a focus on offering people from all backgrounds the opportunity to travel and grow. There are some amazing things happening in our Network to help create a better form of tourism. For the 2017 Year of Tourism for Sustainable Development we are showing the great initiatives around sustainable tourism that happen within the Hostels, each month with a different theme.
In May we shone a light on associations that are taking extra steps to creating accessible Holidays. One very special example comes from a Hostel in Canada which has created the ‘Adapted Wilderness Adventure program’ in order to offer differently abled people the outdoor experience of their lifetime.
HI Canada‘s Adapted Wilderness Adventures programme is life-changing! Together with organisations like Paralympic Sports Association and the Rocky Mountain Adaptive Sports Centre HI Canada has partnered to provide memorable experiences to their guests.
