Prince Rupert remains relatively cool and wet throughout the year. But you can avail great discounts on your stay during the months of Jan- April and Oct- Dec when it gets really cold and rainy.

Look for a package deal (flights + hotels) instead of just hotels. It is most often more budget friendly than making separate bookings.
