Sightseeing (Picture BC photo)
With surroundings of ocean, islands and mountains, it goes without saying that Port McNeill offers some spectacular sightseeing, and walking is one of the best ways to take it all in.
Beyond the town itself, hop on a ferry for the 25-minute ride to quiet Malcolm Island and the community of Sointula. Or for an aerial view, enjoy a flightseeing tour via seaplane or helicopter.
Malcolm Island walks have a charm all their own. They're quiet, no denying it. Town walks are easy. They involve few hills, no mountains to climb and no rivers to ford. And they're about the natural beauty and history of an unusual destination.
Finnish settlers arrived on Malcolm Island in 1902 in search of Utopia. They named their new world Sointula, or "place of harmony." They built a foundry, brickyard, sawmill, blacksmith shop, fire hall, library, community centre, shops and homes. But this wasn't an easy place to live. Eventually, the commune disbanded and many of the settlers left to return home or relocate elsewhere in BC. The determined survivors are responsible for today's village of Sointula. Tenacity was their middle name.
