Sointula - Island Utopia
Located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest
Maps: Vancouver Island and Sointula B.C. Canada
Sointula was settled by utopia seeking Finns in 1901, and by outsiders in 1960's and 70's. Today there are few Finns left on the island, and those who are left have mostly forgotten the language of their parents. But they have not forgotten their heritage and what it means to belong to the community. The spirit of Sointula lives!
Weather facts: Rain forests are located all along the Pacific coast. Fortunately, it does stop raining sometimes. Some like it sunny, others love the rain. You will have lots of both on the British Columbia coast. Dress accordingly.
