Ethnic Adventures - Finn Slough - Steveston


We don't actually know if this qualifies as a full fledged ethnic adventure but how many areas in Vancouver do you know where there is a concentration of Finnish people. 

As the story goes, this area on the south arm of the Fraser River was established in the 1880s by immigrant fishermen from Finland.

It's still a working fishing village, with somewhere around 50 people living and working there in beach cabins and float houses. 


To reach Finn Slough, follow the trail starting at the foot of No. 5 Road and head west through Finn Slough at No. 4 road and Dyke Road.  For more information call (604) 271-5220.
