Day 1 Vancouver to Sonora Resort | HelicopterThis afternoon transfer by helicopter to Sonora Resort on beautiful Sonora Island. The island is an absolute jewel amidst the wild beauty and pristine waters of British Columbia’s west coast. After your arrival, get settled and explore the resort before you enjoy a delicious Pacific Northwestern gourmet dinner.
Day 2 Sonora Resort | Day at Leisure or Optional ActivitiesA Relais & Chateaux luxury resort, Sonora allows you to connect with nature through its stunning setting among towering trees, postcard views and the background music of waves lapping the shoreline. You’ll experience five star accommodations, an extraordinary level of attention and service, and breathtaking outdoor adventures. Take an optional guided eco boat tour, see grizzly bears, kayak, hike the coastal rainforest or try salmon fishing. Salmon Fishing | 4-HrsProtected from Pacific swells with snowy peaks on all sides, the calm passages surrounding Sonora Resort offer an unparalleled west coast fishing experience. Here, it’s not uncommon to catch glimpses of eagles and bears while out to hook a chinook salmon.Zodiac Eco-Adventure Tour | 2-HrsEmbark on a thrilling wildlife viewing experience in the pristine wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, up close and from the water. This tour is a photographer’s delight; Orca and Humpback whales feed, Stellar sea lions bask in the sun, Dall’s porpoises and Pacific white-sided dolphins frolic, and sea birds swoop to pluck fish from swirling whirlpools.Grizzly Bear TourNotoriously elusive, grizzly bears make a rare exception in late August, September and October when they descend on the Orford River to feast on spawning salmon. Here, where they are at ease in their natural habitat and intent on a task, we catch a glimpse of the grizzlies few get to see.Guided KayakingThe quietest way to see wildlife from the emerald waters just South of Sonora is to set out in a stable, easy-to-paddle sea kayak. The resort's partner, Coast Mountain Expeditions, tailors trips to suit every level—beginners, experts or families with young children. If two really want to sync their strokes, a tandem boat can be requested.Phillips Rover Eco TourTeeming with wildlife and steeped in history, the Phillips River valley feeds both ecological and cultural curiosities. Home to bears, cougars, wolves and all five salmon species, the tour explores the area’s natural splendour while also recounting its historical significance, from the first Kwiakah people through B.C.’s industrial age. An hour-long voyage through the renowned Discovery Islands brings you to the Phillips River estuary where grizzly bears may occasionally be spotted in the grassy estuary or along the banks for the Phillips River.
Day 3 Sonora Resort to Vancouver | HelicopterYour stay at Sonora Resort ends with departure after lunch. It’s time to say goodbye to British Columbia’s coastal wilderness and take the helicopter or floatplane back to Vancouver.
