Location of Holberg in British Columbia

Holberg (pop: 35) is a community on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Danish settlers who arrived in 1895 named their settlement after Baron Ludvig Holberg, a distinguished Danish historian and dramatist.[1]:113

Holberg is on the long, winding, unpaved road to Cape Scott Provincial Park,[2] San Josef Bay[3] and Winter Harbour.

Nearby Ronning Gardens,[4] an anomaly in the west coast temperate rainforest, was created by Norwegian settler Bernt Ronning around 1910.

Holberg has always been noted for logging and copious amounts of precipitation.

During the Cold War, the Royal Canadian Air Force established RCAF Station Holberg, a Pinetree Line radar base.

Up on one of the roads of Holberg is a small school called San Josef Elementary.

Holberg is serviced by an AM radio station, CFHG 1490. CFHG began operations on April 16, 1963 from studios at CFS Holberg. The station primarily aired the programs of Vancouver CBC Radio station CBU, but it also aired local programs produced by volunteer staff at the station. CFHG, which produced up to 28 hours of local programming per week in the beginning, gradually increased its local programming content to as much as 68 hours a week by 1984. When CFS Holberg closed and was mostly dismantled in 1990 due to budget cuts, CFHG was sold to Western Forest Products Ltd. and became a community-owned full rebroadcaster of CBU. Like other CBC Radio One repeaters on Vancouver Island, CFHG now rebroadcasts CBCV-FM Victoria.[5][6]

Visitor guidance

Visitors to Holberg typically pass through fabulous natural parks that are made accessible via logging roads. With the exception of Winter Harbour, land access to San Josef Bay, Raft Cove Provincial Park, and Cape Scott Provincial Park is all by way of Holberg. The town itself carries its own interesting history and is worthy of a quick stop to see the remnants of what was once the world's largest floating town.

Despite the very low population, the Scarlet Ibis Pub remains in operation, providing a relaxing, family friendly stop on the way to and from the surrounding destinations.
