Surrounded by streams and lakes in forests kept green by the mild climate of the Pacific Coast, Campbell River is the gateway to Strathcona Park, the Discovery Islands, and the remote north and western part of Vancouver Island. 

A stroll along Discovery Pier may in all probability offer a sighting of a salmon, eagle or whale, as well as views of Discovery Passage, Quadra Island and - in the distance - the rugged Coastal Mountain range of mainland British Columbia.

The river which gives the settlement its name is designated as a BC Heritage River, and the mountains, coastline and islands of the surrounding wilderness are just waiting to be explored.

Heron’s Landing Hotel

This pleasant boutique hotel is set right on the oceanfront, with exceptional views across Discovery Passage. All rooms have a private balcony, where you can relax and enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets; if you’re lucky, you may be able to spot a pod of orcas or bald eagles spiralling in the sky.
