Romantic Getaways in Canada

Although Canada has a reputation for experiencing more than its share of winter's deep-freeze, it also has a well-deserved reputation for having one of the most spectacular and natural vistas in the world. If you're searching for romantic getaways or a honeymoon destination, why not take a trip across this vast and beautiful country?

  • A journey to Alberta's Rocky Mountains offers stunning views to soothe the spirit and relax the mind. Visit the famous Banff and Jasper National Parks and experience the wonder of crystal-clear mountain lakes and snow-capped mountains. Take a horseback ride together through the popular trails, or curl up in a romantic room and watch the sunset touch the mountains.

  • Just across the Alberta border lies Mount Robson Park. Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Rockies, is easily spotted and the nearby Visitor Centre offers plentiful information about what to do in the area. Romantic getaways are easy to find in the area, with numerous private cabins, luxurious bed & breakfasts, and other accommodations scattered nearby.

  • Does your idea of the perfect honeymoon destination include sparkling water views? The provinces of British Columbia (the westernmost province in Canada) and Ontario (in central Canada) are particularly well-known for their beautiful lakes.

    If it's the fresh ocean air that you're looking for, head to the west coast of British Columbia or into the Maritime provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, or Prince Edward Island.

  • Want something a little different? The Northwest Territories, the Yukon Territory, and the new Nunavut are the northern parts of Canada few people have the opportunity to explore. View the panoramic scenery, watch for wildlife, or take a dog-sled tour.

  • No one can resist the spectacular fall colours in Eastern Canada, when leaves turn shades of gold, red, orange, forming brilliant canvasses of colour. Take a quiet paddle through one of Ontario's many lakes and soak in the romantic setting... or visit one of the many charming rural towns in Quebec.

  • Drawn to the sights, sounds, and history of the big city? Canada's bigger cities each offer their own unique ambiance. For example:

    • Explore the historic Montreal and Quebec City.

    • Take in the numerous attractions in Toronto, or use it as your base while you explore the surrounding countryside.

    • Visit Parliament Hill in Ottawa (and don't forget to go skating on the Rideau Canal in the winter - it's a Canadian tradition!).

    • Stroll through beautiful Vancouver, whose year-round mild temperatures make it perfect for taking in outdoor attractions.

    • Take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride in Victoria.

    • Visit Edmonton, Canada's "festival-city", and enjoy a walk along the beautiful River Valley.

    • Spend your days browsing through Calgary's many shops and attractions, or take day trips out to the mountains.

Whether you're visiting Canada or you live in Canada, this country offers plenty to see and do - and in one of the most beautiful & romantic natural environments in the world. Come find your romantic getaway!
