Lund Harbour, Photo Destination BC Andrew Strain

Lund

Sometimes called the Shellfish capital of the West Coast, Lund is a small community on the Sunshine Coast in the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region. It offers a peaceful getaway for anyone that enjoys the spectacular climate of the Sunshine Coast, with a desire to get away from crowds. The most notable landmark of the region is the historic Lund Hotel with stunning views from its decks. Constructed at the tip of the beautiful Sunshine Coast in 1905, this building is the heart of the quaint village of Lund.

The region also houses several beautiful Provincial Parks, offering a wide variety of outdoor activities. There are many long beaches that are warm in the summer. The surrounding waters and islands are excellent for boating, as well as snorkeling and Scuba diving. The tranquil landscape offers numerous hiking trails for all skill levels, leading through forests and over surrounding hills.

A Step Back in Time

Lund is a small-craft harbour on the northern end of the Sunshine Coast. The main landmark in the village is the Lund Hotel, established in 1905.

Two brothers, Fredrick and Charles Thulin were the first two European settlers to inhabit the area, arriving in 1889. They were originally inhabitants of the Swedish town of Lund, and named the area after it. When they arrived, there were already native homes around the harbour.

In 1892, the Thulin Brothers built a post office and general store. Two years later, they constructed the first licensed hotel north of Vancouver.

Logging and fishing were the main source of income in the early years and transportation was by water. A paved road leading south to Vancouver was completed in 1954 and coastal steamer service ended two years later.
