The Port River runs through the valley that is found between the northern and southern arms of the Wolander Mountains in the far northwest of the northern continent. It empties into the western ocean. The frigid city of Juniper straddles the river with the slum called the Buskin near to the Port, and the homes of the wealthier residents "creeping up the heights on both sides" away from the river. It featured one bridge, and its waters were traveled by every sort of vessel, including barges carrying much-needed firewood from upstream sources.

The Port was a minor location in Shadows Linger. Raven and Darling sailed, unnoticed by the Black Company, aboard a newly-built ship down the Port and southward to Meadenvil. During the Battle of Juniper, the new Taken and later Silent launched a sorcery-based artillery barrage from Duretile (on the southern arm of the Wolanders) clear over the Port River onto their target, the black castle, on heights of the northern arm. Later, before the battle was done, a special ship hired by the Captain sailed the Lieutenant, Silent, Croaker, and many other Black Company men down the river and into the open sea, headed to Meadenvil.
