Lund, BC

Lund is a small village 28 kilometres (17 miles) north of Powell River on Highway 101. One claim to fame is that it's Mile 0 of Highway 101, the Pan-American Highway that runs all the way to the tip of Chile. Lund is a popular stop for boaters heading to Desolation Sound and points north.

In addition to fuel, Lund has the Historic Hotel including a restaurant, a small grocery store (with lots of supplies boaters need and want), and a few other establishments. It is also the jumping off point for people traveling to nearby Savary Island. You can take your own boat, or ride the popular Lund Water Taxi.

The Boardwalk Restaurant sits gracefully on pilings over the shallow bay behind the Lund Marina.  Look for a Sunflower Seastar in the clear water, and investigate the old waterwheel along the way. Cap off your walk along the scenic boardwalk with a wonderful meal.

Along the way you will pass another popular eatery called Nancy's Bakery. Cinnamon buns are a favourite of mine. But you can also get full breakfasts and lunches.

Your visit to Lund wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Tug Ghum Gallery below the Lund Hotel restaurant. Debra, the owner, make gorgeous polished stone sculptures. She also has many items from local artists and books, including some of Wayne's Coastal BC Stories.

Come visit Lund. You'll love the people, natural beauty, and great food. -- Margy

  2. I would love to visit that part of B.C. - have two sons in the Chilcotin so perhaps some day I will go even further afield and visit the Coast, and Lund - which looks like a wonderfully friendly place.
