Eight Wonders of the Alberni Valley

The Eight  Wonders of the Alberni Valley

Culture and landscape come together on the list of eight "must see" attractions when experiencing the Alberni Valley. Why spend a bundle looking for adventure when a fun and affordable family vacation is all within minutes of your home at The Hummingbird. Shift gears and stay awhile in the beautiful Alberni Valley!

 

1. Cathedral Grove - Home to some of the largest and oldest Douglas Firs on Vancouver Island.

 

2. Alberni Pacific Railway and McLean Mill National Historic Site - The mill is a National Historic Site and was a family operated saw-milling business until 1965.

 

3. Bears from the Boardwalk - Adventurous black bears like to play across the bay from the harbour side boardwalk, which provides a perfect vantage point for human admirers to catch the bears in action.

 

4. Della Falls - The Alberni Valley is home to one of the tallest waterfalls in North America.

 

5. Mars Water Bombers - These mighty bombers were built originally for long range missions and patrol for the US Navy.

 

6. The Log Train Trail - The 25 kilometre historic trail epitomizes the “work and play” nature of today’s Alberni Valley forests.

 

7. The Whaling Sculpture - First Nation Tribes have created this beautiful sculpture that can be viewed at Victoria Quay. For years it was an iconic fixture in Victoria's Royal BC Museum.

 

8. Stamp River Falls -incredible thunderous water, just minutes from Port Alberni, thousands of ambitious salmon fighting their way up stream to their spawning grounds, a must see.

 

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.
