Activities at HI hostels


Say HI to an active adventure!


All HI hostels are places for social interaction, where you can meet fellow travellers and share stories and new experiences. Many great friendships started in a hostel. Make sure you are open, curious and friendly and you'll have great stories to tell about all the people you've met on your travels. At the HI hostels there are a lot of different guest groups - families, friends, solo travelers, backpackers, business travelers... This is what makes the atmosphere in hostels so special. 

A lot of our hostels offer activities to guests, such as city walks, hikes, free coffee and cookies and movie nights. Especially at the hostels in Bergen and Oslo, we have dedicated volunteers that most of the year will do activities for our guests. You can take a look at their Facebook pages in the West and in Oslo to see what they have been up to lately!

In other hostels you can rent bikes, canoes, rowing boats and get detailed maps for hiking in the local area. Some of our hostels also offer larger activities for a fee, such as white water rafting, king crab fishing or zip-line. Or how about a scooter safari to see the magnificent Northern Lights?
