Sonora Resort, one of Canada’s top luxury wilderness retreats, opens today for what is certain to be a momentous 2017 season. Located within the secluded Discovery Islands in British Columbia, Sonora Resort celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary by officially launching a new experience that offers visitors a rare opportunity to experience the vibrant culture of the Homalco First Nation.
“We are always looking for unique activities to offer our guests at Sonora Resort, particularly experiences that can enrich a deeper connection with nature and our surroundings, and Canadian West Coast heritage,” explains Wynne Powell, Sonora Resort president and CEO. “We have worked with the Homalco First Nation for many years with our grizzly bear watching program. It was a natural fit for us to partner on a cultural experience that will provide our guests with the opportunity to feel even more connected with British Columbia during their stay.”
The Cultural Tour by the Homalco First Nation commences on June 1, 2017. “Homalco” means “people of turbulent, or fast running water.” The tour begins with a traditional Homalco welcome, followed by an exploration of history around the Orford River. Guests have the opportunity to visit a local fish hatchery, enjoy an interactive demonstration of traditional Cedar weaving, visit with a Homalco artist, and weather permitting, paddle a Salish designed canoe. A traditional lunch completes the experience.
