The sunny village of K’il Llnagaay Sandspit is one of the many dozens of village sites that flourished along the inlet’s southern shore. Gorgeous beaches, mountain hikes, rivers and forests distinguish the surrounding country. Just on the west end of town, you will find the head of Haans Creek Trail, where you can explore a little of this beauty.

In town you will find a boat launch, restaurants, a grocery store, airport, hostel, B&B's and the post office. A number of fishing and adventure tourism outfits will get you ready for your next adventure in Gwaii Haanas. These outfits can drive you along the network of logging roads to Gawu Kuns Moresby Camp, an important Haida historical site that is many thousands of years old. Many adventures into Gwaii Haanas start at the boat launch there.

A drive south along gravel logging roads will bring you to ‘Laana GaayGaagings Copper River Village, where Haida still maintain a fishing village. Further south you will find popular campsites at Diinal GawGa Gray Bay. With more backroads navigation you will find K’aayxada TlldaGawaay Mount Moresby and neighbouring HlGuu K’aw.was TlldaGaaw Mosquito Mountain, both of which have popular trails. The difficult climb is well worth the rewards at their peaks, where you can admire stunning views of Haida Gwaii’s eastern and western coasts.
