Every couple needs a one-on-one romantic getaway to reconnect and make new memories together, to make the relationship even more enjoyable. And the holiday season is the perfect time to do so.
Since Canada has been named by Travel and Leisure as its Destination of the Year for 2017, let’s take a look at the most romantic destinations in the Great White North.
Whether you want to spend a romantic getaway in the mountains, lakes, ocean or in the city, Canada has a lot to offer. You’ll never run out of sights to see and activities to do together as a couple.
Victoria, British Columbia
One of the most romantic cities in Canada is British Columbia’s capital, Victoria. Its British colonial past really shows in its Victorian architecture, hence it being called as “North America’s Most English City.”
Explore Victoria’s Villages with your sweetheart where you’ll get to walk past different antique shops, boutiques, consignement stores for some unique finds or hop on one of those horse-drawn carriages in James Bay and snuggle up under a blanket as you tour the harbour. Also, don’t go home without experiencing a classic Victorian tradition – an afternoon tea in one of the luxury tea rooms or quaint tea gardens.s
Quebec City, Quebec
This Friench-Canadian city is the ideal setting for a storybook romance, thanks to its old charm and breathtaking architecture – cobblestone streets, hidden passageways, intimate cafes, bistros, and a lot more. Everything in Quebec City just screams ROMANCE.
Nope, we’re not talking about the famous Niagara Falls. Niagara-on-the-Lake is charming, quaint and a lot less touristy than Niagara Falls. In this historic town is a plethora of romantic bed and brakfasts and boutique hotels where you and your sweetheart can stay.
Go on a scenic drive, a bike or a hoseback ride and stop at wineries or to explore Canada’s wine country. You can also join Wine Tours and Wine Tastings if you are a wine connoiseur.
Whistler, British Columbia
This city in BC is home to one of the largest ski resorts in North America. Aside from skiing and other snow activities, you’ll surely enjoy a romantic escape in one of the many cozy inns, lodges and hotels with the best views of Whistler’s breathtaking views.
Iqaluit is the capital city of Nunavut, a Canadian territory. I added this on the list because here, you’ll get to witness the Northern Lights. What’s more romantic than seeing the Northern Lights with the love of your life?
