Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert is the largest city in northwestern British Columbia and a gateway to the Queen Charlotte Islands, the famed Inside Passage and smaller towns in the area. Amidst fjords, rain forests, lagoons, and sandy beaches, Prince Rupert is surprisingly cosmopolitan with all the modern conveniences of a larger city, including a performing arts centre, restaurants and a lively nightlife. The area is also perfect for learning about the history and customs of local First Nations people, and one-of-a-kind wilderness exploration and wildlife viewing experiences.
