Port Alberni is a city in British Columbia. It is located at the base of Mount Arrowsmith and is practically surrounded by mountains.
The city of Port Alberni is about an hour's drive west of Nanaimo on Highway 4. Those who do not have vehicles can use Tofino Bus to get to the community from Victoria, Nanaimo, and Vancouver. An airport exists about 20 minutes from the city. However there is no regular year-round service because fog is so prevalent in the winter and it is not certified for instrument landings. Chartered float planes can land in the harbour.
