Lodges Of The West CoastFeaturing Sonora Island Lodge Resort
This package promises to be the most unique adventure of 2009. West Coast Wilderness Lodge and Sonora Island Resort have put together a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The best way to see B. C. is from the air!
Day One — Fly to the Lodge, hike the Skookumchuck or paddle Sechelt InletYour trip begins the moment you board a Beaver float-plane, provided by West Coast Air, for the 175 kilometre flight to West Coast Wilderness Lodge from Vancouver. As you fly north-west along the Sunshine Coast, inlets and islands pass below you and the Coastal Mountains are right outside your window.
You will arrive early at the Lodge — and can choose between taking a guided hike to see the fastest rapids in North America, or going on a kayak tour to see the marine wildlife native to this area.
Day Two — Princess Louisa InletAn all-day boat tour up one of B.C.'s most romantic coastal fords. As you reach the head of Jervis Inlet, cruise through the geological constriction known as Malibu Rapids into sheltered Princess Louisa Inlet. Here, you will dock and amble along the cedar boardwalks that wander through the rainforest to the bottom of Chatterbox Falls.
Day Three — Sonora IslandYour trip continues as you hop aboard your float plane to Sonora Resort, north of Desolation Sound. Once in the air, you will feel a sense of discovery as sights and destinations from B.C.'s coastal past will be below you, such as remote fishing villages and logging camps — not to mention Orcas, dolphins and sea lions. Before you land, you'll pass by the Great Bear Rainforest and the Yaculta Rapids. Your scenic flight lasts just over an hour.
Day Four — Explore!Sonora Lodge Island Resort offers a range of exhilarating outdoor adventure opportunities. Enjoy the ultimate escape - a thrilling helicopter tour to a glistening glacier for a private picnic, or to remote inlets where there are no roads, just untouched, magnificent nature. And at the end of a spectacular day on the water or on the links, why not relax and rejuvenate in one of the outdoor mineral pools at the resort's elegant Spa and Wellness Centre - over 5000 feet of luxurious serenity and unadulterated pampering just for you.
Day FiveThis is the day of your departure back to Vancouver — but before you go, you have most of the day in front of you to enjoy. Join an Eco-tour to enjoy the breathtaking views and maybe catch a glimpse of grizzlies and eagles in the wild or dolphins and Orca whales across the bow. Accompany Sonora's seasoned kayak guides through the calm, protected waters of the Outer Discovery Islands. Don't forget to look up, to see bald eagles, kingfishers and herons soaring overhead.
When you are ready to depart, a helicopter will be standing by to whisk you away.
