What is there to do in Powell River?

Powell River is the dream destination for anyone who thrives in the great outdoors. Long, challenging walking trails decorate the mountains and gloriously green parks dominate the landscape – there aren’t many places as picturesque as Powell River. Copeland Islands Marine Provincial Park affords wonderful views of the surrounding hillside and rock formations, as well as offering a refreshing dip in the crisp water when the weather is agreeable. Inland Lake Provincial Park supplies an idyllic trail alongside the edge of the greenery and foliage, showcasing the most aesthetically pleasing spots along the Sunshine Coast.

Whilst the parks and walking trails exude a relaxing vibe, there are ample opportunities to try your hand at the adventurous watersports on offer. Kayaking, canoeing and snorkelling are hugely popular amongst locals and tourists alike, with many heading to the city purely to experience the array of activities along the coastline. The shores and hiking trails are the standout attractions in Powell River, though there is something for those who prefer to spend their time exploring the historical culture belonging to the city. Museums, movie theatres and specialty shops line the centre, providing enough entertainment to fill the itinerary of the most enthusiastic traveller.
