Prince Rupert


Prince Rupert (pop. 13,500) is the land, air and water transportation hub of British Columbia's north coast and is located 721 km (447 miles) west of Prince George on highway 16. Prince Rupert is a marine-based port city with one-of-a-kind wilderness exploration and wildlife viewing experiences. It’s also a popular stop on various Alaskan cruises. The city sits at the mouth of the Skeena River, surrounded by Chatham Sound and many small, uninhabited islands.
The area is perfect for exploring and discovering the fascinating history and customs of local First Nations people. Prince Rupert is recognized as one of the world’s largest and leading ports and port facility expansion in the area ensures a multitude of economic opportunities.
