Most Loved Photos of 2018

2018 was the year to #DiscoverCampbellRiver, the number of stories and images that were shared this past year of your adventures and discovery were astounding. Here are the most loved photos from our account this year. Keep the ball rolling in 2019 by using  #DiscoverCampbellRiver to share your perspectives of our home and region. We look forward to following your adventures and sharing your stories about the wild.

  1. Lower Myra Falls in Strathcona Provincial Park was a consistent crowd pleaser in 2018. We love all the different perspectives that have been captured of this area. Keep them coming and be sure to practice leave no trace.


2. Our “friendly locals” received a lot of love this year! Campbell River is lucky to share its waters with humpbacks, orcas, dolphins and many other creatures!

3. Elk Falls images have become ‘the shot’ to get of our area and for good reason. The dynamic area provides an ever-changing canvas through the seasons, capturing the colours and varying water flows. 


4. This aerial shot from a helicopter shows off Rebecca Spit from above. This provincial park is a well-loved spot and we enjoyed reading everyone’s fond memories of the park on both IG and FB.

5. This moody shot taken along the road into Zeballos shows off what we love about our neighbouring communities, pristine, clean, wild landscapes. We encourage everyone to make the resolution to explore new areas and experience all the west coast has to offer .. #MeetourNeighbours


6. While Grizzly bears are not “locals” to the area, they are a huge draw to Campbell River, as operators take wildlife enthusiasts into the inlets to showcase these amazing animals. A humbling experience to observe in person and a crowd favourite when shared across our channels. We’re so glad that so many had the opportunity of a lifetime this past season to experience these animals in the wild.

8. The glacial blue waters of Landslide Lake along with the dramatic backdrop of Mt. Colonel Foster have made for some amazing images. Sharing this view with ones best friend doesn’t hurt either! Happy trails to you and your four-legged friends that accompany your adventures.



9. Paradise Meadows, are a great hike or snowshoe (in the winter months). The meadows in the fall are particularly beautiful, as all the alpine foliage changes colour.


Thank you for a great 2018 and we can’t wait to see how you #DiscoverCampbellRiver in 2019!
