January 29, 2016
Canada is a beautiful country with stunning blue lakes, famous waterfalls, and vast wilderness areas. In the cold of winter, use Valentine’s Day to snuggle up somewhere with your sweetheart. No matter where you live in Canada, there is somewhere for everyone. This is the land of romance. Take advantage of it.
Vancouver Island is a perfect way to experience the raw wonder of Canada together. Hot springs bubble up from the earth, waiting for you and your loved one to take a dip. Come by boat or floatplane to access this remote area. Soak as you enjoy spectacular scenery all around you. Follow the white and burgundy ‘Wine Route’ where vintners will welcome you in. Taste the local flavours paired with cheeses and other delights. Of course, you need to purchase a bottle or two to take back to your room when you are finished. Wine and romance are synonymous.
For the active couples, Valentine’s Day in Whistler, British Columbia is the perfect place for some great skiing and ice skating together. Do some night skiing under the twinkling stars. Share some roasted marshmallows over an outdoor fire. Enjoy a delicious meal in one of the many restaurants with the mountains as a backdrop.
A winter playground, Banff encourages all things romantic. Sleigh rides, bundled up close to your sweetheart, ice skating or relaxing in the hot springs together, this places just oozes love. See the Canadian Rockies from almost every corner. Enjoy the hot water of Banff Upper Hot Springs as it soothes away everything stressful, leaving you only to enjoy each other.
Look into each other’s eyes and then look out over gorgeous Niagara Falls. Hold hands and walk along the pathway where the falls roar. If you walk at night you can even see the falls all lit up and it is truly breathtaking. After you see the falls, you shouldn’t miss out on booking a wine tour on Niagara-on-the-lake.
Quebec City is filled with centuries old charm, history and gorgeous scenery. Cobblestone streets, alleyways filled with flowers, wrought iron balconies and bistros with outdoor tables where you can people-watch and share a decadent dessert. Tour the Citadel or Parliament Hill. Walk along the boardwalk hand-in-hand and view the St. Lawrence River. See the lower village where artists display their works along the sidewalk and the bay sparkles in the background.
Colourful houses line the streets of Newfoundland. The coastal communities of Heart’s Desire, Heart’s Content and Heart’s Lament make this perfect for a Valentine’s Day getaway. Walk the shores looking for whales. Stop in at the Heart’s Content Cable Station historic site for a look at the past. Stroll to the lighthouse. Enjoy the coastal beauty with your special one.
