Non-Accommodated Tours

If you book a non-accommodated tour, you MUST book all nights of accommodation yourself. Moose will NOT include nor hold any accommodation reservations on your behalf in the overnight locations. You should book a non-accommodated tour if you wish to stay in private rooms or in alternative properties on your tour.

Pre and Post Tour Accommodation is NEVER Included

Regardless of whether or not you purchase an accommodated tour, you must ALWAYS book your pre and post tour nights in Vancouver and Banff yourself. For your convenience, we recommend staying at one of our hostel pick up locations, noting that we also drop off at these same locations.

Moose Accommodation Listings

Here is a list of the hostels we stay at on accommodated tours. If you book a non-accommodated tour and wish to stay in hostel private rooms, we recommend booking at these same properties since that is where the majority of the other Moose travellers and your Moose driver/guide will be staying.
