Things To See & Do

A combination of culture and landscape come together in Port Alberni to create a remarkable experience!

Port Alberni is located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia and hosts the longest inlet on the island.  This waterfront community has a strong Native history and many local attractions to keep all types of visitors satisfied.

Picture yourself here, standing before the splender of a waterfall, hiking a mountain trail or kayaking through the glassy inlet waters and witnessing the majesty of an eagle soaring in flight or a whale surfacing. And all within minutes of The Hummingbird as your home base.

The Alberni Valley is a destination filled with landmarks and attractions that are magnificent, historic and inspiring. Experience Super Natural Alberni Valley with its ruggedly beautiful inlet coastline. Deep sea diving among underwater wrecks in the Graveyard of the Pacific. Windsurfers ply the waves at China Creek Marina and the harbourfront area in Port Alberni. Sproat Lake is another favourite windsurfing option and is known for brisk winds and lots of sunshine. River tubing the Somass/Stamp River system ends  you right back at The Hummingbird. Winery tours, golfing under the ever-watchful presence of Mount Arrowsmith and scenic Alberni inlet tours on a jet boat or a working freighter are just a few more ways to fill your days. Your nights can be spent relaxing on the deck of The Hummingbird while watching your supper cook on the BBQ before a dip in the hot tub and maybe a friendly game of pool in the games room.

Guest Reviews

It has been delightful

The hummingbird is noted, among other things, for its beauty and the attention to detail that it takes in building its nest. The Hummingbird is a wonderful compliment to that tradition. There was a light rain falling the day we arrived - an event unfamiliar to us desert dwellers but the sight of the Hummingbird must have touched a memory of home. We stopped on impulse just to enquire and decided to stay two nights.
