Visit Port Alberni and the Alberni Valley


This Vancouver Island destination has much to offer. Carved by glaciers, sheltered by mountains, the Alberni Valley is a brilliant ecosystem, protected by a group of communities working together and enjoying this amazing space. Discover old growth forest and west coast beaches, waterfalls and mountain views. Outdoor enthusiasts with a taste for the extreme will find breathtaking hikes, mountain biking, zip lines and kiteboarding, with west coast surfing just a bit further down the road. If it gets your pulse racing, you can find it in the Alberni Valley.

Those seeking a more relaxing pace, might explore walking trails under ancient canopies, watching bears from the boardwalk, or spending a day fishing or tubing on Sproat Lake.  Take in some of our history, with a visit to the Maritime Discovery Centre, Maclean Mill Site or Port Alberni Museum. There’s lots to see and do for everyone!
