British Columbia Travel Guide
The unofficial BC Travel & Tourism Guide
Except for Quatsino itself, which is only accessible by sea or air, the other communities are accessible by dirt road. Travelers can generally expect to use unpaved and often rough roads. Its population is now approximately 90 people.

In 1884, at the site of an ancient Quatsino village, Norwegian settlers founded a colony called Scandia. It was later renamed "Quatsino" and the first school in Quatsino Sound was built there.

Historical artifacts include the Quatsino lighthouse at the entrance to the sound built in 1909, St. Olaf’s Anglican Church built in 1896 and still in use, and other signs of 19th century European attempts at settlement. Artifacts of the ancient inhabitants, made from wood, have been removed to museums around the world but are documented by early photographers.
