Destination guide

Go ape for Campbell River

If you've been to the movies in the past 20 years, then you've probably come across Campbell River. Nestled between majestic forest and crystal waters, it served as the stunning backdrop to the epic 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes', along with many other movies. What's more, it's also the 'Salmon Capital of the World', and attracts whale watchers the world over, who flock there to catch a sight of the magnificent orca whales that call the Georgia Strait home. Make the most of your visit and book a Campbell River vacation rental to be near its many attractions.

Things to do

Whales ahoy in Campbell River

Fancy catching a glimpse of some magnificent orca whales in their natural habitat? Then head down to Discovery Harbor Marina. There you'll find numerous tour operators, whose seasoned guides will take you to all the best spots to see these incredible mammals, and if you're lucky, some humpback whales and sea lions as well. Another not-to-be-missed attraction includes The Museum at Campbell River. This captivating seafront museum tells the story of Vancouver Island's unique history and heritage. Among its many highlights is a large collection of First Nations carvings and artifacts.


Land a big one on the Quinsam River

Whether you're on land or water, you're sure to be amazed by Campbell River. In the beautiful Elk Falls Provincial Park, you can hike deep into the forest along scenic trails, or pitch up by Quinsam River and try and land some salmon or trout. On the Georgia Strait, you can catch sight of orca whales and seals, or just take in nature's wonder from the vantage of your kayak. Back on land, there's no shortage of things for you to do in downtown Campbell River either, what with its lovely boutiques, art galleries, and lively waterfront bars and restaurants.


When the sun comes after rain

Here's a simple rule. If you don't need a raincoat, bring sunscreen. And if you don't need sunscreen, bring a raincoat. Campbell River's warm Mediterranean climate means it gets both a healthy dose of sunshine and rainfall. The warm months extend from May through to September, with July and August temperatures soaring into the high 80s. September is a particularly good month to book a Campbell River vacation rental, as it's after the summer peak, before the rainy months, and the orcas are still about in the Georgia Strait. After September, Campbell River can get chilly, so come prepared for occasional downpours and biting wind chill.

Natural features

Grizzly times on the Orford River

There's much more to wildlife in Vancouver Island than just the marine variety. In fall, massive grizzlies descend from the hills to fatten up on spawning salmon before settling in for a long winter's hibernation. If you fancy a peek, Campbell River tour operators will take you by boat to Bute Inlet, among other prime feeding grounds. From there, you climb into safari vans and are driven to safe viewing platforms where you can view these giants at the edge of the Orford River. To see these powerful creatures, plan your Campbell River vacation rental between late August and late October.
