The museum is a first stop on the Alberni Valley Heritage Network, that includes the McLean Mill Historic Park, host to the only commercial steam-operated sawmill in Canada. Next, board the Alberni Pacific Steam Railway, a restored 1929 former logging train. The 35-minute ride to the Mill takes you through beautiful, dense forest.


For a land-based tour of the area, pick a trail to hike, bike, or ride. There are more than 100 trails from which to choose. Don’t miss Cathedral Grove, an endangered remnant of an ancient Douglas fir ecosystem. Some of these trees are 800 years old, and can reach 250 feet tall and 29 feet around. This is a truly spiritual place.


Windsurf, waterski, charter a houseboat, or just take a swim in the many and varied waters. To get above it all, go soaring in a glider over the Alberni Valley. This rugged territory offers up its natural treasures easily—watch whales or bears, fish in the deepest ocean or cast from a quiet river bank, spend an afternoon at the beach or lose yourself in a rainforest. The Pacific Rim region is still largely undiscovered, but it won’t stay that way for long.


IF YOU GO


The entire production family of Falcon aircraft (Falcon 2000LXS, 900LX, 7X and 8X) can operate at Alberni Valley Regional Airport (YPB) where an expansion lengthened the runway from 3,952 feet by 75 feet to 5,000 by 100. Flying out of Port Alberni, all Falcon models can reach anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, and the 900, 7X and 8X can reach South America and Europe. The airport is open 24/7; to talk to Manager Don Anderson, call 250-720-2700. Handling services can be arranged through Universal. The airport sits just 250 feet above sea level on the southwestern end of Vancouver Island, a quick 10-minute drive from downtown.
