Welcome to the end of the road: Lund, British Columbia, is the northernmost town on the Sunshine Coast and also Mile 0 of Highway 101.
This seaside village is the epitome of small town vibes, playing host to boaters on their way to Desolation Sound, road trippers reaching the terminus of Highway 101, and those who made the trip just for a famous blackberry cinnamon bun or a pollen sweater. With about three hundred year-round residents, the population swells in the heat of summer as visitors boat, drive, or cycle here to enjoy Lund’s charm and to access Desolation Sound Provincial Park, the Copeland Islands, Okeover Inlet, the Sunshine Coast Trail, and tropical Savary Island.
Sarah Point, 12km north of Lund, is the start of the 180km-long Sunshine Coast Trail which ends in Saltery Bay. With several access points and tributaries along its route, this scenic trail offers easy day hikes and free hut-to-hut hiking for overnight treks.
Outside the north end of the Lund Harbour, the pristine Copeland Islands Marine Park (aka Ragged Islands) hugs the shoreline toward world-renowned Desolation Sound. Another route to Desolation Sound is along Okeover Inlet past the oyster farms and through Malaspina Inlet. Both popular waterways are happily shared by sport fishers, pleasure boaters, kayakers and avid scuba divers who enjoy the excellent underwater visibility and abundant sea life.
Stay a while and take advantage of the variety of accommodations for all budgets including an RV park, B&Bs, hotel, cottages, and cabins. Also, don’t miss the annual Lund Shellfish Festival held each year in May.
