Travel Planning
By Land and Ferry  
The drive from Vancouver to Lund, located on the northern end of the Sunshine Coast is considered one of the most spectacular car journeys in North America. The route includes two BC ferry crossings with plenty of additional sightseeing options along the way. The total journey time is typically 5-6 hours with several picturesque villages and ferry rides en-route. 

The 40-minute crossing from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale captures the magnificent scenery of Howe Sound and the B.C. Lower Mainland. A beautiful 90-minute drive from Langdale can include detours to the coastal village of Gibson and ends in Earls Cove where the Saltery Bay Ferry conveys passengers for 50 minutes across still more sublime scenery. The final one-hour drive to Lund passes through historic and now booming coastal town of Powell River.  

On Vancouver Island, BC Ferries regularly depart Comox, close to Campbell River, for a 1 hour 20 minutes crossing to Powell River. Lund is about 45 minutes drive from historic town of Powell River. 
 
Our boat transfer from Lund Harbour to Desolation Sound and the Resort, takes about 45 minutes and is scheduled to depart at about 3:00 pm on Thursdays and Sundays.
