Prince Rupert is a city found on the west coast of Canada, laying in the province of British Columbia. The ferry routes departing the port head to coastal resorts residing on islands neighbouring Canada’s west coast, ranging from seven hours to 16 hours.
A city with a population of just over twelve thousand demonstrates the laid back nature that embodies Prince Rupert. Butze Rapids Park and Trail has surged into prominence with tourists in British Columbia; alluring forestry is engulfed by fresh water, providing endless, wonderful vistas throughout the entirety of the walk. If you arrive at the right time of day, a rainbow can be seen over the rapids, which is worthwhile visiting in itself.
It is hard to top witnessing a rainbow over the absorbing rushing sound of ongoing rapids, yet the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary offers a glimpse into wildlife that is rarely seen in the Northern Hemisphere. The guides and owners strive to maintain the beautiful scenery that encompasses the sanctuary, therefore the tour doesn’t venture too far, so the proximity of the bears often varies from day to day. The distance from the habitat doesn’t always lend itself to a completely authentic experience, yet being able to watch and admire the animals is almost a guarantee, and the picturesque environment alone makes the tour worthwhile.
The only form of public transportation is a bus service that has seven lines covering all sections of the city. Alternatively, there are taxis readily available throughout the city for quick and convenience.
