What to see in Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert, on British Columbia's stunning coast, is known for its rich indigenous heritage, bustling port and breathtaking natural beauty. Visitors can enjoy fishing, kayaking and whale watching, explore the Museum of Northern British Columbia and savour the city's vibrant cultural scene and warm, welcoming community.

The Museum of Northern British Columbia offers a deep dive into the region's rich cultural history, showcasing the heritage of the indigenous peoples of the area, particularly the Tsimshian Nation. The museum itself is a striking building designed to resemble a traditional longhouse, symbolising the cultural roots it represents. Inside, visitors are greeted by a remarkable collection of artefacts that tell the story of the region's inhabitants from ancient times to the present day. The exhibits include beautifully crafted masks, totem poles, tools and ceremonial objects, each with detailed descriptions that provide context and significance. Guided tours led by knowledgeable staff offer additional insights into the history and traditions of the local First Nations. The museum also hosts contemporary art exhibitions and cultural events, allowing visitors to experience the living culture of the indigenous communities.

Whale watching in Prince Rupert is an exhilarating experience that attracts nature enthusiasts from around the world. The waters surrounding Prince Rupert are teeming with marine life, making it one of the best locations for observing whales and other sea creatures in their natural habitat. Tours typically operate from late spring to early fall, when migratory patterns bring humpback whales, orcas and grey whales close to the coast. These tours are usually conducted by experienced guides who are knowledgeable about the marine ecosystem and the behaviours of the whales. The sight of a whale breaching the surface or a pod of orcas gliding through the water is awe-inspiring and provides a profound connection to the natural world. In addition to whales, visitors on these tours often encounter dolphins, sea lions and a variety of seabirds. The boat rides themselves offer spectacular views of the rugged coastline, with its dense forests and dramatic cliffs, adding to the overall adventure.

A scenic journey on the Skeena River offers another unique way to experience the natural beauty and rich history of Prince Rupert. The Skeena River, one of British Columbia's longest rivers, is a vital waterway that has shaped the landscape and the lives of the people who have lived along its banks for centuries. One of the best ways to explore the river is by taking the VIA Rail’s Skeena train route, which runs between Jasper, Alberta and Prince Rupert. This rail journey is renowned for its breathtaking scenery, passing through dense forests, alongside pristine lakes and beneath towering mountain peaks. As the train winds its way along the river, passengers are treated to panoramic views of untouched wilderness and the chance to spot wildlife such as bears, eagles and moose. The journey is also steeped in history, with the train route following paths used by indigenous peoples and early European explorers.
