We could have accomplished all our souvenier shopping in the gift shop! Knowledgeable and very friendly staff, no stairs, very accessable. They were a big help in planning our trip to Gwaii Haanas.

A great place to pick up all kinds of information, and especially the two large-scale maps of Haida Gwaii. Some good books on NW coastal art and on totem poles. Also, a superb 2010 documentary movie on Emily Carr.

The Visitor Centre is in the airport, do not miss it as it has lots of things to look and items to buy (didn't find anymore places to do that in Sandspit) at as well as information about Haida Gwaii.

The woman who was running the shop was a fountain of knowledge about local roads. Well stocked, sorry I didn't buy the scarf I saw there!
