We are located on 17th Ave only three blocks from the Red Mile; Calgary's famous party avenue. We are 4 blocks away from the trendy 4th St. and Mission entertainment and shopping areas (dining, drinking and shopping) For a bit of mall shopping its only a few minutes by train to Calgary's Chinook Shopping Center.

And guess what, we have free parking too, something not often found in Calgary. We also provide planned activities like group skating or tobogganing in the winter or *floats* down the Bow River and free BBQ's in the summer.

We even have a digital movie projector for "I've-Hit-The-Wall" Tuesday movie nights (projected on the wall) so you are free to relax have a hectic weekend exploring Calgary.

We also thought after hiking down the Bow River trail, sight-seeing around downtown Calgary or just spending the day in Banff skiing, you might want to get a good night's rest, so we fit all of our beds with hotel-quality pillow-top spring mattresses.

For security we have CCTV cameras throughout the common areas and corridors as well as keypad-locked front door (locked after 9pm). For the security of our guests, we only accept genuine backpackers carrying government-issued out of province/country ID and luggage/backpacks.

Comments: There is no better way to experience the 5 Star Wilderness of the South Chilcotin Mountains. Experience the night stars, vast skies, towering mountain ranges, and endless scenery. Travel ancient game trails, wild flowering meadows, and hear the rush of glacial fed rivers.

While our Ranch is easily reached by vehicle, access to the pristine wilderness of our guide territory is by foot, horse or float plane only. Its remoteness helps preserve the outstanding quality of wilderness. The glaciated shale terrain makes summitting challenging yet obtainable, no matter what your method of travel.

The South Chilcotins lie within a transition zone between the Coast Mountains and the Chilcotin Plateau. This favoured position produces a rainshadow. This means sunny skies and a dry climate. The environment is "almost bug-free."

The area is renowned for its bio-diversity. An outstanding variety of wildlife and vegetation inhabits our guide area. California Bighorn sheep, Moose, Mule deer, Mountain goat, Grizzly, Black bear and wolf are plentiful and frequently sighted.

"Chilcotin" is an Indian name meaning "People of the Blue Water". The glaciers give the lakes throughout our territory an emerald turquoise colour.

The Pioneer Trail
Hike along well-defined horse trails once used by explorers, pioneers, and gold miners. Wildlife will greet you along the trail. Loons call to you from the lake. The star-studded skies, and the campfire will round out your hiking experience.

Chilcotin Holidays Guided Hiking Program
This trip is full of hiking for nature lovers. Jumping trout, 50 million year-old fossils, over 150 species of wildflowers, the call of the resident loons, and the canoe on the beach beckons you take the paddle. The slow pace of nature is addicting and you begin to rise and sleep by nature's clock.

One of the features of Auberge L'Apéro is our beautiful terrace where you can relax and enjoy your continental breakfast in the sunshine, or come back for an apéro at the end of wonderful afternoon of sightseeing before heading out to dinner. We also feature a fully equipped kitchen, a communal TV room with free Internet and hi-speed Wi-fi access, and laundry facilities. Most importantly, there is no curfew so you will be free to explore the city and its famous (and fabulous!) nightlife to your heart's content.

What sets Auberge L'Apéro apart from other hostels is our attention to detail. We treat you as guests, not passers-through, and you will find our personalized service not unlike the service you would find in a hotel.

Auberge L'Apéro is not just a regular hostel that happens to be in Montreal, L'Apéro is like Montreal. It reflects the city's vibrant social life and European style. Don't just visit the city, be part of it at Auberge L'Apéro.

Where we are is just as important as what we are. Situated on Mackay Street, a quiet side street just steps from Saint-Catherine Street, the city's main downtown shopping district, Auberge Apéro is within walking distance of most of Montreal's attractions including Old Montreal, the museums of Fine Arts, Contemporary Art, Natural History, Architecture, and Montreal History, as well as the Bell Center - home of the hockey Canadiens and our famous Underground City. We only one block from the Metro, the city's fast, clean subway system that can whisk you anywhere that is too far to walk, from the Casino on Ile Notre Dame to the boutiques and restaurants of the famous Plateau Mont-Royal.

Montreal is a city of festivals and our location gives easy access, either on foot or by Metro, to the venues of all of our great festivals. Whether you come to our city for Jazz, Comedy, the Fringe Festival or les Nuits d'Afrique, you will be close enough to walk, but far enough away to relax and sleep in quiet and comfort.
