Your luxury Canada holiday begins in Vancouver on British Columbia’s coast, an impressive city combining the sophistication of a world-class metropolis with spectacular natural surroundings. Boasting colourful downtown neighbourhoods, thriving green parks, and an abundance of fantastic restaurants, interesting museums, and impressive architecture, you’re sure to find something to do in this cosmopolitan city. Why not spend some time exploring and take in beautiful landmarks such as Stanley Park and Granville Island before heading to your luxury hotel in the heart of Downtown Vancouver?
Now, set your sights on the beautiful and private Sonora Island (accessed only by air or sea) home to an abundance of wildlife and offering a rich array of adventures. During your stay here, spend time enjoying the unique experiences offered by the resort. Embark on an exclusive ‘grizzly bear tour and watch them make a rare appearance as they descend on the Oxford River to feast on the fresh salmon. An experienced Holmalco First Nation guide will lead you (by car) through stunning moss-covered rainforests to various bear-viewing towers on the riverbanks and will share their knowledge of the bears, the salmon, and the Holmoco People and their cultural ties to the lands. The exciting Eco-Adventure Tour invites you to spot boisterous sea lions basking in the sun, pacific white-sided dolphins swimming, and many native sea birds swopping to catch their next meals. You might even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some majestic whales as your experienced wilderness guide offers informative narration of the thrilling wildlife.
