Canifis is a small town in Morytania, which lies to the east of Varrock. It is only accessible to players who have completed the Priest in Peril quest. The town is inhabited by werewolves in human form and can be tiresome to travel to for lower level players.


Players can teleport to Canifis using the Ancient Magicks spell Kharyrll Teleport. Alternatively, players can focus one of the portals in their Portal Chamber in their house to Canifis. You can also use a fairy ring with the code cks, which will teleport you just west of Canifis. In addition an ectophial may be used to teleport close to Canifis obtainable after the Ghosts Ahoy quest. A Salve Graveyard Teleport may be used to get to the graveyard outside of Canifis.

Other people
