Sightseeing (Picture BC photo)
With surroundings of ocean, islands and mountains, it goes without saying that Telegraph Cove offers some spectacular sightseeing, and walking is one of the best ways to take it all in.
For a rewarding, offbeat tour, drive to Port McNeill 30 minutes away and hop on a ferry for the 25-minute ride to Malcolm Island and the community of Sointula. Or enjoy a flightseeing tour in a helicopter to get an aerial view.
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 this 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.
