Hastings House and the Route du Bonheur

Discover the Faces of Western Canada’s Relais & Châteaux

Indulge in a Relais & Châteaux trip of a lifetime, venturing throughout breathtaking Western Canada via the Route du Bonheur, the Road to Happiness. The expression, “Route du Bonheur,” captures the joy of travelling through the French countryside, visiting the many “relais” (lodges) and châteaux (castles) along the way.

Since its inception, La Route du Bonheur has been one of the foundations of Relais & Châteaux. Now, 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.

The Western Canadian Route du Bonheur begins at the 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 beauty, grace, and enchantment are found in an idyllic country resort located on 22 acres of verdant, ocean-front property amid the natural beauty of Salt Spring Island. Hastings House is a quintessential Relais & Châteaux hotel featuring extensive flower and vegetable gardens that supply their renowned restaurant with the freshest produce, all grown without any chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides.

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?
