My experience on a Signature Educational Journey to Vancouver and Sonora Island was amazing! We were able to explore so many wonderful hotels and resorts in addition to several fun activities. The trip was very active which I thoroughly enjoy.
In Vancouver we visited the Opus Hotel Vancouver (95 rooms), located in the Yaletown district near restaurants bars and shopping – excellent location. In Vancouver I also visited the Shangri-La, The Douglas Hotel, the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver, the Fairmont Pacific Rim and Fairmont Water Front. The Fairmont Waterfront has luggage delivery to the cruise lines at Canada Place.
We then took a 45 minute flight from Vancouver to the Sonora Resort (88 rooms plus Presidential Suite and two private villas) via float plane. This is a luxury retreat offering hiking, biking, eco tours, salmon fishing and more!
Some of the local excursions included the Capilano Suspension Bridge – not for the faint of heart but the views are spectacular. Fly over Canada - a fun 8 minute ride that takes you coast to coast. Grouse Mountain/breakfast with the bears - take the gondola up and have breakfast with the bears. The Vancouver Aquarium which is the 5th largest aquarium in North America. And the Granville Island Foodie Tour - bring your appetite - we tasted 7 different foods-bread, cheese, tea, nuts, meat, apples and donuts! Tourism Vancouver rolled out the red carpet for us. A beautiful area I would be happy to assist you with.
