Campbell River

Salmon Capital of the World

Locals may joke Campbell River represents civilization's end on scenic Vancouver Island, yet the city remains a lively hub of tourism consistently packed with nature enthusiasts from every corner of the globe. A trip to Campbell River lets you discover one of world's top wilderness destinations, with plenty of chances to trek through rugged landscapes that include mountains, islands, and unspoiled coastlines. Called the "Salmon Capital of the World," the city serves as a gateway for exploring areas frequented by bald eagles, otters, whales, and many other animals. Large and prosperous enough to support a dynamic arts scene, Campbell River also boasts many galleries selling works by local painters, carvers, and jewelers. Whether you only want to go to Campbell River, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Canada trip planner .

Where to stay in Campbell River

If you choose to stay in Campbell River itself, you'll likely find yourself in a friendly inn or guesthouse overlooking the estuary, where the river meets Discovery Passage. You can get a clearer view of the strait by staying on the coast, on the eastern side of town, where motels look across the water to Yaculta on the other side. Head farther south along Island Highway for even quieter coastal accommodations only a few minutes' drive from the local airport.
