I came into Prince Rupert by Greyhound, a 2.5 day trip from Lake County, California, where I was then living. You go through Prince George, which is inland British Columbia, after which is next to nothing but nature for ten hours or so -- just great expanses of some of the most beautiful land you'll ever see. Green, big, with eagles up above and a bear or two on the side of the road. Prince Rupert appears at the end of it all, the last thing before the ocean, popping up like a dream. A real beautiful town, if a little impoverished. I stayed in the Pioneer Hostel, which is the only place to stay in town (another hostel is available, but it's more like a halfway house -- a whole other story, my first night there). You can catch ferries here to the Queen Charlotte Islands to the west and Alaska to the north (the panhandle start just above Prince Rupert) -- but plan ahead. You can go three days at a stretch without a ferry to Alaska, depending on the time of year.
- Pros:Remote; good locally caught seafood in Cow Bay
Has this monument commemorating the city's Scandinavian developers. Much fishing history here. more travel advice
There's some nice First Nation art to see around town, here on the City Hall downtown. more travel advice
