Can't say enough good things! Travelled August 2016, family trip with 2 adult (19 and 21) children. Booking was easy, and they were very helpful in suggesting and pre booking activities. You either fly in by helicopter or seaplane from south terminal at YVR or by water taxi. Rooms are great with fully stocked bar and snacks included. Rooms were... More

If you can , you must experience Sonora ...a stunningly beautiful setting, with wild nature all around and the service and staff so helpful...we were made to feel special but without too much fuss...our highlight was the grizzly bear tour with First Nation guides who were excellent and we were lucky enough to see many bears in their natural habitat...

A first class wilderness and fishing resort. It was very high end but done simply and very low key. Stunning property and it seems that all of the rooms have amazing views and amenities. The food, which would include variety and availability, kept everyone in our group of adults and teenagers very happy. Our favourite server even organized an amazing... More

We were thoroughly impressed from the moment we arrived via the helicopter charter to our departure. Extremely organized and friendly staff/management that attend to all your required comforts. Fantastic accommodations, food, and activities. You can tell the staff loves to be there as they treat everybody as 'family'. The rooms are very comfortable with amazing views and stocked fridges but... More

We have to say that we were quite disappointed, overall, with our stay at Sonora. Eventually, we had a good time as it is a beautiful location with great nature around, but you frankly to do not get what you paid for. It all depends by what you expect when you pay CAD 1'500.- / a night. For us it... More

Best family vacation we ever had! We loved every activity as well as the down time. The staff became our friends and the Service was outstanding! Swimming with the salmon is an experience we will never forget along with spotting a grizzly bear along the shore while boating. Such a perfect mix of excitement and relaxation!

This was our 3rd time at Sonora Resort and it has never disappointed. An amazing place, the staff are wonderful and the food was to die for! It is not a place we can afford to visit very often but we will be back without question.

I visited Sonora as part of a trip from a Client. We had 2 nights there, which was just too short. The resort can only be reached by boat, helicopter or seaplane, which makes it a complete adventure. Despite the short amount of time, we packed in activities. Hiking, Fishing, Spa and lots of eating. Rooms are beautiful, with extraordinary... More

What a superb place to stay. From the greeting when you arrive by either Floatplane or water taxi. A magical location where Bald eagles, Herons, Hawks float above you all day long.

This was truly one of the most amazing vacations we have ever experienced. From the minute we got there we were in heaven. Greeted by a friendly staff with appetizers and champagne to kick off the trip. Followed by a quick presentation of the property and what all to do by the general manager Sean.
