Port Hardy

Located within the traditional territory of the Kwakiutl First Nation and home to two neighbouring First Nations bands, the Quatsino and Gwa’sala- ‘Nakwaxda’xw, at the Northern tip of Vancouver Island, Port Hardy and the surrounding area is rich in tradition and deep-rooted in culture. Totems and big houses stand tall and weathered throughout Port Hardy and the neighbouring community of Fort Rupert, telling of the indigenous history that began over 8,000 years ago.

Rich, rugged and resilient, Port Hardy is the gateway to an authentic, unspoiled, nature-driven adventure. Port Hardy sits at the very edge of the coastal wilderness where you can hike our rugged trails, walk along our sandy beaches, or paddle along the rocky shores, no matter what you choose you will find that exploring Port Hardy connects you with nature in ways you didn’t anticipate.


The Port Hardy Visitor Centre is open 7 Days a week 9am-5pm
