Prince Rupert is a charming port on the secluded Kaien Island in British Columbia. Passengers on cruises to Prince Rupert will find a close-knit community nestled among jaw-dropping scenery. Vast forest, wide rivers and abundant wildlife make this port an unexpected favorite. Far from other more bustling B.C. cities, it is a gateway to pristine hiking and paddling spots. Butze Rapids Park and Trail is an easy to moderate trail that winds through temperate rain forest with excellent water views. Outdoor and nature activities are just the beginning. The area is known for a large population of bears and other wildlife.
Those interested in culture should visit the Museum of Northern British Columbia on their Prince Rupert cruise stop. The museum has a large collection of Tsimshian art and artifacts, amongst other highlights. For a smaller city, Prince Rupert has big personality with a plethora of shops, seafood restaurants and a fish market. All easy to explore from the Prince Rupert cruise port.
