Trip Planner Canada  /  British Columbia  /  Sunshine Coast  /  Lund
Lund is a small craft harbour and unincorporated village in Powell River District, British Columbia, Canada. It is located along the northern part of the Strait of Georgia on the mainland BC coast. The main landmark in the village is the Lund Hotel, established in 1905. By boat from Lund, the Copeland Islands (Copeland Islands Marine Provincial Park) and Desolation Sound, (which includes Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park) are nearby. Lund is home to many shops and services including a general store, a restaurant overlooking the water, kayak and adventure tourism stores, and Nancy's Bakery, a favorite of locals as well as tourists.HistoryLund was named by brothers Frederick and Charles Thulin when they settled at the harbour in December 1889. It was named after Lund, Sweden from where they came. When they arrived, there were native homes around the harbour. The Thulins built a store and in 1892 a post office was added followed by the first licensed hotel north of Vancouver two years later. Logging and fishing were the source of income in the early years. Transportation was by water. A second hotel, called the Malaspina, was built by the Thulins. When the original hotel was destroyed by a forest fire in 1918, the newer hotel, which continues to operate in the village to this day, was renamed the Lund Hotel. A paved road leading south to Vancouver was completed in 1954 and coastal steamer service ended two years later. The original wharf built by the Thulins was damaged by a storm in 1954 and replaced by a government wharf.
