Sonora Resort, Sonora Island, British Columbia
Sonora Resort is in what many believe is to be the most beautiful setting in coastal British Columbia, perhaps on the planet. Sonora Island is at the mouth of Bute Inlet, a fiord where the majestic, glacier-crowned coastal mountains rise out of the ocean.
The rivers that melt from them spill into Bute, turning the waters an other-worldly emerald green. The Pacific is narrow here so tides are powerful and the water is oxygenated – it teems with life. It has some of the best salmon fishing anywhere on the coast. Seals, sea lions and salmon; herring spawn on the kelp beds and feeding eagles soar. In the back country, grizzly bears feast on salmon-rich rivers.
Vancouver Island native Lukas Gurtner is the Executive Chef having served as sous chef at the award-winning Relais & Châteaux property for the past five years. Like all leading edge chefs, he has a passion for harvesting the local bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Cooking is in his genes. Half Swiss, he grew up under the tutelage of his father, who is also a chef.
