It is surreal how harmonious and contrasting a real Campbell River experience is: you are in the city, but right in the middle of the wild. You have all the luxuries of modern living but with the raw beauty and access to nature at your fingertips. You can be golfing in the morning, riding ocean rapids in the afternoon, and take in a sunset and some seafood from an oceanfront patio at night.
Campbell River is where the wild collides with the everyday, every day. It is also a place where technology could truly unlock the best of what the real world has to offer.
Enter the Campbell River Collections – themed compilations of passion-based experiences in the palm of your hand that encourage and reward you to not only do what makes you feel good, but to try something more, something new and perhaps even something slightly out of your comfort zone. A platform created to be as rewarding as Campbell River itself.
All the collections are passion-based, allowing you to curate the perfect Campbell River vacation. Pick from collections like the Angler, for those who are all about fishing, or Nature Lover for those who love to explore the natural world.
The #CRiverCollection companion app and guide has a sole purpose to make every Campbell River experience more rewarding by sharing exclusive local insights and tips at each location so visitors and locals can get the most out of every experience. This region is chock-full of unexpected experiences and unsung locations, but without a local guide, it’s easy to miss out on everything our backyard has to offer.
Bundling various combinations of experiences, hotels, restaurants and vantage points create multiple itinerary ideas geared at “The Photographer” “The Family Escape” or “The Culture-Seeker” collections as examples. These collections offer a range of complimentary experiences to expand off the last one, making every visit fuller and more satisfying.
An interactive map gives coordinates to more than 60 participating check-in locations, and points collected along the way will offer exclusive access to money-can’t-buy experiences and custom swag as rewards at point redemption locations.
