The City of Port Alberni nestles at the end of the Alberni Inlet, at the mouth of the Somass River. To get there take scenic Highway 4 past Cameron Lake and through Cathedral Grove.

Many attractions are available year-round. The Alberni Valley Museum has a superb collection of First Nations art, artifacts from the area’s industrial past and rotating displays on historical and contemporary themes. The Rollin Art Centre, in a heritble building with a beautiful public garden, displays the work of local and regional artists. Eighteen murals around the city depict area history and landscapes. Welcoming figures created by local carvers of the Hupacasath First Nations greet visitors to the Victoria Quay area, at the bottom of Johnston Road (the main road through town on the way to Tofino and Ucluelet) which features boutiques, restaurants, coffee houses, and the Nuu-chah-nulth whaling monument.
