Higgin's Inn on the Sunshine Coast of Beautiful British Columbia is poised on the edge of great recreation and discovery adventures. From Desolation Sound and points further north to the heart of a glacier in the diverse wonder of the coast mountains. Higgin's Inn is only minutes away from crystal clear lake swimming and canoeing or an amazing beach where summer storms bring warm currents and awesome waves. Other Powell River businesses have kayaks, bicycles, houseboats, horses and scuba equipment for rent plus a plethora of charter cruises for exploring coastal waterways. Raven's Coast Expeditions offers a unique service to explore the adjacent high country. Heli-hiking tours will let you access beautiful alpine lakes and ridges, for hiking, camping, honeymoons or painting getaways. It's a photographers' paradise with the ever-changing mood of the mountains. Powell River also offers a splendid variety of restaurants from authentic Thai, Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, Greek, Chinese and of course our own native seafoods, because Powell River has a wonderfully diverse population.

Music and Art are a big part of our culture here with festivals and celebrations all year long. Of special note is Kathaumieux an international choral festival that brings choirs from around the world to compete and perform through 5 days of musical excellence. Kathaumieux is a must see.

This event is an extravaganza of orchestral delight as students and teachers gather here, again from around the world, to study and perform together often for the first time. Powell River has a world class recreation center, Vancouver Island University campus, four major grocery stores and all the unique shops and boutiques that go along with a very art conscious citizenry.
