Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada
Information Not Currently Available
Approximately 2¾ Hours
Begin your journey with a brief ride aboard an air-conditioned motor coach. Along the way, your guide will offer insight into the history of Prince Rupert and the surrounding communities.
Upon arrival at a trailhead into the Butze Rain Forest, set off on a hike deep into the forest. Part of the fun will be learning about the various plants and trees, their importance in traditional native medicines and culture, and their role in the food chain.
Approximately halfway through the hike, you'll stop to rest at a viewpoint overlooking the Butze Rapids. The rapids here reverse direction and change character with the tides -- all is peaceful at high and low tide but in between times the rapids roar with white foam.
Enjoy a snack and bottled water at the rapids before returning to the trailhead and to downtown Prince Rupert.
Please note: Wear sturdy walking shoes. The hike is about two miles round trip. Participants must be able to sustain a moderate walking pace over the duration of hike.
