Looking for the perfect get-away that puts you in the heart of nature, surrounded by luxurious amenities and an array of rugged wild experiences to choose from?

Look no further.

Sonora Island is located within the Discovery Islands at the mouth of the Bute Inlet in one of the deepest inlets in North America.  A short commute from Vancouver by boat, air or private helicopter if you want to get there in under fifty minutes lands you up in the lap of luxury steps away from the ocean, grizzly bears and epic food and wine programs. The resort was recently named to the prestigious 2016 Conde Nast Traveller UK Gold List. What does making this list mean? It means that the guided grizzly bear tours, gourmet cuisine and luxury accommodations are a sure bet to stretch your smile from ear-to-ear.

Head out now (between August and October) and join in on tours guided by the Homalco first peoples. This means you can learn about the land, ancient ecosystems and ways to truly soak in the beauty as it has been done for thousands of years (with a small footprint).

The spa offers five  treatment  rooms  including  a couple’s  massage  room, outdoor  hot  and  cold  mineral  pools,  fitness  facility  and relaxation room.
