Things  To  Do

Northern Vancouver Island is known as a wildlife watchers paradise, a centre for Native Culture, and home to some of the greatest forest and ocean scenery in the world.  The small town of Port Hardy has roots back to the mid 1800's as a fur trading fort and centre for commerce.  Currently there is still a fishing fleet that departs here, art, schools, and photographic opportunities that will amaze you.  Visit Port Hardy and live the adventure - there are activities to suit everyone!
