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.
