Campbell River

Nestled on the east coast of central Vancouver Island, and long known as the "Salmon Capital of the World" and more recently as an adventure and eco-tourism hub, Campbell River is a nature lover’s destination of choice.

Capture the spirit of Campbell River with a stroll in the sea breezes on Discovery Pier and you might see a salmon, eagle, or whale. Take in views of Discovery Passage, Quadra Island and, in the distance, the rugged Coast Mountain range of mainland British Columbia. Explore trails along Campbell River's namesake, a designated British Columbia Heritage River.

Homebound salmon travel through Discovery Passage on their final journey to the spawning grounds. The salmon's life cycle of hatching, feeding in the river, traveling to the ocean and eventually returning to its birth river, attracts and sustains a wide variety of wildlife-bears, eagles, whales, otters, ravens and others. It's also spawned a centuries-old culture unique to the Pacific Northwest.

Campbell River is also the gateway to Strathcona Park, the Discovery Islands, and remote north and west Vancouver Island for whale watching, kayaking, and other unparalleled wilderness opportunities.
