Welcome to the Only City in the Great Bear Rainforest
Prince Rupert is a coastal city of about 14,000 people on the coast of Northwest British Columbia. Nestled into the backdrop of the Great Bear Rainforest, it is one of two port cities in British Columbia.
Set against a spectacular setting of mountains and sea, Prince Rupert is a great place to golf, fish, hike, and take advantage of quick access to wilderness. Prince Rupert has daily direct flights to Vancouver. By car, we are 8 hours west from Prince George.
