Sointula, A Taste of Utopia

On Malcolm Island you will find a unique blend of history, nature and fishing. It is a beautiful friendly place to "slow down and stay a while". Sointula means "place of harmony" and relates to the Island's Finnish roots. Sointula was settled by these hardy Scandinavian immigrants at the turn of the 20th century. Led by a visionary/writer, they leased Malcolm Island from the province and engaged in a social experiment in communal living. An initial attempt at farming failed and they turned to fishing.

Take a stroll form the ferry dock or walk from your moorage at the Lion's Harbour past interesting old fishing sheds...everything is in short walking distance. There is a Museum which chronicles the early settlers' tragedies and triumphs;Bere Point is a wonderful place to camp in your tent or camper...with a good chance to sight killer whales in Queen Charlotte Strait.

Sointula is a beautiful place to relax and design your own adventure. Sointula Resource Centre

One of my favourite places to stay is Sea 4 Miles Cottages. Tell Jill, Crystal says Hi!
