City overview

Situated on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia, the Canadian city of Prince Rupert is a scenic destination that offers visitors a wealth of culture, adventure and wildlife. Occupying Kaien Island, which is linked to the mainland by a bridge, Prince Rupert is an urban oasis framed by unspoilt Canadian wilderness. The city lies in a sheltered harbour surrounded by islands dotted along the famous Inside Passage. Despite its isolated location, Prince Rupert is a cosmopolitan city with fabulous museums to explore, shopping outlets and many opportunities for wildlife and adventure activities. To the northeast of the city, you can discover the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary, a protected park that is home to a grizzly bear population. Prince Rupert offers many other wildlife encounters, including whale watching and bird watching, and if you are a keen fisherman, this is a prime location for a spot of sport fishing or freshwater angling. If you prefer to explore the history of Prince Rupert, head to one of the city’s museums, such as the Kwinitsa Railway Museum, which displays railway life in the 1910s, or the The Firehall Museum, which displays artefacts from the fire department’s history since 1908. If you like to take a more active approach to your visit, take to one of the hiking trails around Prince Rupert, such as Butze Rapids, a popular trail that winds through forest to see Butze Rapids, a spectacular display of reversing tides. Butze Rapids also offers the most daring visitors the chance to experience an exciting white water kayak ride on the 15 ft (4.5 m) tides.
