Property Highlights:expand_more

Whether it's steps from your suite or out in the wilderness, something exhilarating or a chance to exhale, each individual will find chance to experience something truly unique. Take to the waters on an Eco-Adventure tour as you listen to whale songs and other undersea sounds or head to rougher waters for a river rafting tour. Dry land also has plenty to offer - enjoy archery in their unique range or hike through the Phillips River Valley, which offers plenty of wildlife and history.

Wildlife Encounters

Between late August and October the, often elusive, Grizzly Bears descend on Orford River. This rare opportunity to spot the animals in their natural habitat makes an exciting excursion for guests, provided by Sonora Resort. Take a brief boat journey up river, then travel by vehicle through lush rainforests to view these amazing animals amongst the incredible scenery of Canada.

Hotel Experiences

Head to the resort's heli-pad to take a helicopter tour of this stunning part of western Canada, enjoying a private picnic atop a glacier en route, or fuel your adrenaline with a guided kayaking tour down the Campbell River, spotting mink, otters, seals and even dolphins as you go. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, why not request a Grizzly Bear tour and observe these colossal creatures from a ten-foot-high viewing tower?


Surrounding forests make the serene Sonora Resort an idyllic private spot for couples to enjoy. Luxurious suites offer the perfect home-away-from-home setting to return to with your partner after a day of exploring the lush greens and calm waters of this beautiful island. Couples can enjoy everything from wine-pairing sessions, to helicopter glacier tours, forming unforgettable memories in this truly unique resort.

For time together, head out on one of the many hiking trails on offer that meander along winding paths through lush greenery. The outdoor archery range also offers lessons to older children who wish to try it out alongside their parents, whilst younger children can make the most of the playground and movie theatre on offer.
