Our Luxury Wilderness Resort 'What to Pack' List

Packing Tips

Here are a few packing tips to make your stay at Sonora Resort as comfortable as possible. For exploring the resort, we suggest you bring a pair of deck shoes or good walking shoes. We do not recommend high heels for daytime activities. Dress is casual, with an emphasis on layers and a mix of short and long sleeves to allow for sun and wind factors. Bring outdoor pants and skirts that you will feel comfortable in, especially when you are participating in activities.

High quality light and heavy rain and windproof outer layers are provided. We will also supply you with rubber boots. Don’t forget your camera and video camera. As Sonora Resort is fully connected with WIFI, you are welcome to bring your laptop and cell phones (We are Telus and Bell Mobility compatible). Computers and telephones, including free international long distance are also available for your use.

Important note: Effective January 1, 2008, the Department of Transportation through the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, no longer permits loose lithium batteries in checked luggage. Keep batteries and equipment with you, or in carry-on baggage. More here
