Sonora Resort

The Sonora Resort is where
luxury meets eco-adventure

The Sonora Resort is where luxury meets eco-adventure, with a privileged location in one of Canada’s most alluring, untouched wildernesses. At your doorstep are lush old-growth Pacific rainforests and pure waterways full of Chinook salmon. Grizzly bears inhabit this beautiful environment, so used to the stands built to view them, they use their posts as back-scratchers. Also resident in the region are First Nation communities, who work very closely with Sonora Resort to ensure the land remains pristine.

Guests at Sonora Resort are accommodated in stylish rooms, suites and private villas, all appointed with the finest linens, warm goose down duvets and premium bath products. The 12 guestrooms are cosy, crafted from cedar and stone, with bathtubs and fireplaces, while the more contemporary suites are much more generous in size, featuring huge picture windows. The villas offer the utmost privacy, with wraparound decks, mini grand pianos and multiple hot tubs, with nothing but forest for miles around.

Activities at Sonora Resort include world-class salmon fishing, grizzly bear tours, ocean kayaking, boat cruises, river rafting, stand up paddle boarding, marine tours and helicopter flightseeing. It’s also possible to take a guided cultural tour with the chance to paddle a traditional canoe. When you aren’t experiencing the great outdoors, on the property are a wealth of facilities that you can take advantage of including a 9-hole putting green, virtual golf, outdoor heated pool, fitness centre, spa, sauna and numerous rooftop hot tubs.

Canada Overview

Why visit Canada? Spanning the top of north America from the Pacific to the Atlantic, this huge country offers majestic scenery, unspoiled wilderness and incredible wildlife and adventure opportunities. At the same time Canada is a modern country with sophisticated cities, world class accommodation and excellent rail, road and air network.

When is the best time to visit Canada? From May to September is the best time for cruising and touring in Canada when the weather is at its finest. Temperatures and daylight hours vary depending on latitude, and the coast is more moderate than inland regions which have long hot summers and very cold winters.

Grizzly bear viewing is generally good from June until October and Polar Bear viewing around Churchill is possible from July to November. November to April is the time for winter wonderland experiences, skiing, dog sledding and the Northern Lights.

What can I combine Canada with? Alaskan holidays like Inside Passage cruising and wildlife viewing. Canada can also be combined with Arctic cruising and ice based adventures.

How do you get to Canada? Fly to Vancouver in British Columbia for west coast touring and cruising, or to Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or Quebec City for eastern Canada.
