Day 1 Vancouver to Sonora Resort | HelicopterYour luxury lodge-hopping starts with a helicopter ride or float plane 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.
Days 2 & 3 Sonora ResortSonora Resort is not only a Relais & Chateaux luxury resort, with its stunning setting among towering trees, postcard views and the background music of waves lapping the shoreline, it also allows you to reconnect with nature. Take a guided eco boat tour, see grizzly bears, kayak, go rafting, hike the coastal rainforest or try heli-hiking. Fishing is one of the key experiences at the resort, with heli-fly-fishing, river fly-fishing and salmon fishing available. You’ll experience five star accommodations, an extraordinary level of attention and service, and breathtaking outdoor adventures. At the end of the day why not have your catch prepared the way you like it!
Day 4 Sonora Resort to Clayoquot Wilderness Resort | FloatplaneYour stay at Sonora Resort ends when you depart on your privately chartered floatplane for your scenic 30 minute flight over Vancouver Island to Clayoquot Wilderness Resort on Bedwell River. The 28 ultra-luxurious sleeping, dining, lounge and massage tents, appointed with all the luxurious amenities you can wish for, await for an extraordinary wilderness experience. In the evening, after you have moved in and explored the resort, your hosts sit with you to design your personal adventure for the next day. This means no “signing up” for particular activities in advance, you can decide what you would like to do each day.
Days 5 - 7 Clayoquot Wilderness ResortYour outdoor adventure continues! Let yourself be swept away by ancient forests with 1,000 year old cedars, miles of walking and riding trails, pristine lakes, a majestic coastline, a breathtaking river estuary and abundant wildlife including whales and black bears. As the resort specializes in remote wilderness experiences, you may choose to be taken to a secluded beach to learn to surf, have a First Nations guide escort you on a day-long hike on the “Wild Side” interpretive trail and Flores Island, or kayak rushing rivers and private inlets. The resort’s signature experience is horsemanship with horses available for beginner to expert riders.
