Sonora Resort: Part One

After our short stay in Vancouver, we made our way to the ultimate destination for our trip – Sonora Resort, on Sonora Island. We spent four fantastic days at this resort and there was so much to see, eat, and do. Accordingly, I’ve split my review into two parts. I hope you enjoy.

From Vancouver, Sonora Island was only a short 45 minute trip away – by helicopter ride, that is! The resort operates its own helicopter flights through London Air, and these were the largest helicopters I had ever been on.

We landed, and were greeted by the staff as soon as we exited the aircraft, and taken to the main lodge for a short introduction while our luggage was taken to our rooms.

The main lodge, where we ate all of our meals, was huge! There was a formal dining room, casual places to relax and play board games/read a book, and a bar as well.
