The Youth Hostel movement has welded the youthful elements in the country into unbreakable fraternity. In order to promote this spirit further, and develop in them love and care for nature and its inhabitants, YHAI has been organizing various adventure and trekking programmes.
These programmes are being organized in some of the most extreme terrains of the country, be it the mountains, deserts, caves, beaches or just the woods!
One thing’s for sure, Hostelling International hostels always welcome everyone. So after the Sochi Winter Olympics highlighted controversial homosexual legislation, we thought we’d highlight five of our best hostel destinations for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender travellers.
You’ve seen the movie, now see the real-life setting. Take a trip to the set of your favourite film where you can recreate the moves of your fave character, visit the locations of the scenes that made your heart leap, and follow in the footsteps of the stars. See Harry Potter’s Great Hall in Oxford or visit The Hobbit’s home in Rotorua.
