The Road Less Travelled:
Unique and Adventurous Romantic Travel Ideas
What do you think of when you hear the word, "romance"?
Some couples head for deliciously luxurious 5-star hotels. Others can't think
of a better way to spend their romantic getaway than by hiking
to the top of a mountain and breathing in the views together. Fortunately, Canada is a
vast and diverse country that provides plenty of options for your unique romantic travel
options or simply a weekend getaway. Romantic travel can mean all
sorts of things... it just depends on who you ask!
Whether you prefer the romance of the big city or you dream of a secluded holiday in
the heart of nature, there's sure to be something that will catch your fancy (and many
accommodations will be happy to help arrange an custom
adventure package for you). Here are a few "adventure travel" ideas for
couples seeking a unique (but still romantic!) getaway:
- Head out on the water. Bring or rent a canoe or kayak and launch it from
a secluded waterfront cottage. Research potential campsites for overnight stays, or
head back in for a quiet and romantic dinner on your private deck.
If the two of you enjoy an exciting adrenaline rush, look into resorts
or other accommodations that offer white-water rafting trips. If you prefer
a holiday that's not quite so adventurous, then perhaps you might enjoy spending
your romantic getaway on a houseboat instead.
- Sign up for an eco-tour. Ecotourism offers a way to view and appreciate
the natural wonders of our country, while taking care to respect and conserve the
natural environment and cultural heritage of the area. Ecotours may be gentle day
walks, or more rugged hikes through the mountains; you might view wildlife, storm-watch,
explore an old-growth forest, or visit historical fishing villages; and you could
travel by foot, vehicle, or over water.
- Ride the rails. Take a vacation by train
- just sit back and enjoy the scenery! Short trips, long trips, budget accommodations,
or luxury resorts... you can customize your romantic getaway just for the two of you.
Stay at a rural lodge that specializes in horseback rides. Many beautiful
country accommodations offer horseback rides and
can customize a package for your special romantic occasion. Some even offer overnight
horseback riding trips! Of course, you could always take a romantic day trip then
return to the warmth of the lodge for a hearty meal.
These are just a few adventure travel ideas for couples vacationing in Canada.
With so many romantic getaways to choose from, you're sure to find something that
fits the "romantic" in you!
