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.
