Come to Historic Lund on Canada's West Coast
You will find us above Nancy's Bakery, in the community of Lund, BC Canada. Lund is the end (or beginning) of scenic Highway 101, a long stretch of coastal highway whose southern terminus is in Chile, South America.
Lund is a historic village, settled by Europeans in the 1890’s. Traditionally the lands here have been inhabited by the Sliammon First Nation for over 5000 years, although here in the village, little evidence of their site remains. It is a wonderful community, long known as the gateway to the beautiful Desolation Sound, even before it was designated a marine park area. The area offers more than just a spectacular ocean playground - it offers forested trails, clear inland lakes, cultural and arts events, and some wonderful local restaurants and accommodation providers. Lund is part of the Powell River Regional District and the whole area is our back yard for the adventures and programs we offer.
Although we are on BC’s mainland coast, the drive here includes taking a ferry or two as the ferries are our marine highway bridging the gaps created by the ocean. The ferry rides themselves are worth the trip!
Travel by BC Ferries from the Horseshoe Bay terminal to Langdale. At Langdale you will drive north on Highway 101 along the Lower Sunshine Coast until this section of Highway 101 ends at second ferry terminal, Earls Cove. From there you will travel to the Saltery Bay terminal. You are now in the Powell River Regional District. A 1/2 hour drive will take you to downtown Powell River and another 1/2 hour will take you all the way to Lund!!
