Port Hardy located in the heart of Vancouver Island North, the upper third of the North America’s largest island is unspoiled and largely undiscovered.. It offers a breathtaking palette of parks, forests, lakes, saltwater inlets and jigsaw-puzzle coastline. Black bears forage for berries, whales splash at sea and eagles glide overhead. From remarkable coastal shorelines to the vast watery depths of the Pacific, Port Hardy has all the ingredients for the perfect wilderness adventure. Whether you come to hike the North Coast Trail, paddle along the rocky shores of neighbouring isles and inlets, or catch a salmon of a lifetime, discovering Port Hardy is truly a wonderful experience. Port Hardy’s pristine environment serves as a gateway to many outdoor activities for both locals and tourists, including sport fishing, world class scuba diving, caving, kayaking, recreational boating, hiking, and nature viewing.
