The Clayoquot Wilderness Resort on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

At the luxury tented Clayoquot Wilderness Resort on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, guests can participate in one of three heli-yoga experiences in the UNESCO-designated Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve Area. This year-round opportunity takes guests by helicopter to a remote setting into secluded areas to find solitude, including above the clouds to the 4,500-ft. Ursus mountaintop, on a private island beach alongside whales and marine life, or in an old-growth forest. In addition to a helicopter transfer, guests are guided by a private vinyasa flow yoga instructor and a locally sourced five-star spa lunch or wine-paired dinner complete with white linen service in whichever setting they opt for.

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, a Relais & Chateaux property, is only accessible by floatplane, helicopter or boat and features 20 luxury guest tents, the Healing Grounds spa and daily wilderness activities such as hiking and river kayaking. Rates for the heli-yoga experience start at $595 pp for a 4-hour, half-day excursion; $1,550 pp for a full-day excursion with a minimum of three people. Regular room rates start at $4,750 pp for a 3-night stay. For more information, call (888) 333-5405 or visit wildretreat.com.
