The Western Canadian Route du Bonheur
Indulge in a Relais & Châteaux trip of a lifetime this year, venturing throughout breathtaking Western Canada via the Road to Happiness (Route de Bonheur). The French saying, "Route de Bonheur," captures the joy of travelling through the French countryside, visiting "relais" (lodges) and châteaux (castles) along the way. Relais & Châteaux has created its own Western Canadian version of this journey, which includes their spectacular luxury resorts nestled in some of the most scenic areas in Canada. From British Columbia’s breathtaking ocean and mountain landscapes to Alberta's crisp emerald lakes and rugged rockies, Relais & Châteaux creates a unique adventure, combined with culinary delights, extraordinary hospitality and one-of-a-kind accommodations that you will never forget.
Relais & Châteaux's Western Route de Bonheur begins as guests fly into stunning Sonora Resort, a captivating playground full of adventure, where luxury and pristine wilderness are in perfect balance. The route then leads guests to Hastings House, where grace and simplicity are found in a country resort located on relaxing Salt Spring Island. Down the road is some exciting storm watching at the renowned Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino. Neighbouring Clayquot Sound offers an intimate glamping experience at the Clayquot Wilderness Resort. After all the wilderness adventures, guests are invited to the heart of the city to lavish in luxury at the captivating Wedgwood Hotel and Spa in downtown Vancouver. The end of the road takes guests to a classic, alpine getaway at the incredible Post Hotel, surrounded by the stunning Canadian Rockies. Where will the road take you?
