Getting here is half the fun. Campbell River or Wiwek̓a̱m is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island. Almost smack dab in the middle we’re a 3hr drive north from Victoria and 3hr drive south of Port Hardy.  Drive, fly or boat in the choice is yours!

Your options include; following the coast and driving along Hwy19a, this route abounds with hidden gems and charming seaside communities sure to delight all members of your party. If you’re not one for the slow lane don’t waste a minute of exploring time and fly straight from Vancouver into the Campbell River airport, the short flight over provides scenic views, on a clear day look out the window and marvel at the coast below. Or if you’re travelling by boat, drop anchor downtown at one of the many marinas and explore our city before touring around the many islands that dot our coastline. 

Whichever way you travel the trip to get here is a scenic venture with many opportunities for genuine exploration along the way.
