Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert - Where the wilderness of Canada begins.

The City of Prince Rupert is situated in a sheltered inner harbour and protected by a rim of islands along the famed Inside Passage. The community is ideally located on British Columbia's beautiful North Coast, only a short distance from the Queen Charlotte Islands and Ketchikan Alaska  and is easily accessible by air, rail, cruise ship, ferry, car, or rv.

There is a rich cosmopolitan culture to be found in the city and the community is home to a diverse group of people, with varied interests. Prince Rupert boasts superb museums and outstanding attractions seemingly at odds with the relatively small population and remote location. Daily life is further enriched by an extraordinary visual and performing arts community.  The exceptional wildlife viewing, phenomenal sport fishing, top notch attractions and extensive options for outdoor activity make Prince Rupert the ideal choice for a copules or family holiday, a corporate retreat, or a solo getaway. 

Work really does meet play in Prince Rupert where many finish off a day at work with a round on the centrally located golf course or out on the water kayaking, fishing, or just taking in the scenery.    Organized sports, volunteer associations, modern recreation facilities, community groups and festivals all contribute to a comfortable and fulfilling lifestyle for those living in this community of 15,000.

Prince Rupert boasts all the amenities of a municipal centre while still retaining its small town charm and new developments promise to bring a new era of prosperity to the scenic oceanside community.  Offering a unique and exciting wilderness experience, Prince Rupert is the ideal spot for a relaxing vacation and is a community where achieving a balanced lifestyle really is just par for the course.
