CAMPING TO COTTAGES
A town of rolling hills, big trees, and the smells, sounds, and sights of an active harbour, Prince Rupert is the kind of place that makes you feel a little like you’re out of time.
Here at the end of the road, time moves more slowly—and it’s a good thing. Waking up to the sound of eagles and ravens and the fresh ocean air is a uniquely north coast feeling. The locals who work at, own, or manage Rupert accommodations live and breathe that experience every day. In other words, they know just how good it can be, and will happily help you take advantage of your time here.
Rupert has plenty of accommodation options available to travellers.
There are swanky hotels that overlook the harbour, places where you can expect to be pampered while enjoying a great view, and there are hotels that offer clean and comfortable rooms to lay your head, while not breaking the bank. Or there’s a funky hostel where you can meet other travellers and learn from the locals who run the place, conveniently located within walking distance from great shops, restaurants, sights, and staging points for adventures and tours. There are only a couple of bed and breakfasts in town, but they’re worth looking into, if that’s the kind of scenario you enjoy (one happens to be in an old heritage building right in the centre of town). And for self-sufficient travellers, there are great spots to set up a tent or park your RV. Because Prince Rupert is a compact city, you’ll be close to everything you need wherever you stay.
