Looking for the Ultimate Romantic Destination? Try British Columbia
Updated: Apr 14, 2022
From the snow-capped mountains to the salty sea breeze, British Columbia sets the scene for love, no matter your interests. Spend the morning on the slopes, and the afternoon beachcombing - or skip the outdoor adventures in favor of a gastronomic one instead! Whether you’re celebrating your honeymoon with stars in your eyes or have a lifetime of love under your belt - British Columbia offers something for lovebirds of all ages, stages, and activity levels.
Luxury and Urban Exploration
Vancouver leaves you wanting for nothing, and if your idea of romance is stunning suites, exquisite dining, and private shopping - this Canadian city by the sea has got you covered.
Stroll the shops on Alberni Street, or have a private shopper do the heavy lifting at Holt Renfrew (the Canadian equivalent of a Saks Fifth Avenue or Barney’s New York). If you and your love bond over mind-blowing cuisine: look no further. Hit the ground running on a walking foodie tour (don’t miss a stop at the famous Japadog cart) or indulge in an intimate candlelit dinner. Be prepared for local and fresh cuisine, passionate chefs, and a global influence.
Wildlife & Adventure
A mere 90-minutes from Vancouver’s bustling city center are the world-renowned Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Home to the 2010 Winter Olympics, this stunning backdrop of towering mountains is equally impressive in Summer as it is in Winter. Hike, bike, and even zip line above a canopy of evergreen trees, spot black bears and breathe in the fresh alpine air.
Swap your hiking boots for stilettos come evening, and take a turn sabering a bottle of champagne at Bearfoot Bistro in their underground wine cellar – or visit the Ketel One Ice Room to sample a flight of sub-zero vodka.
There’s nothing more romantic than going off the grid with the one you love, feeling like you’re the only two people left in the world. Imagine that, but then add luxuriously appointed accommodation, gourmet fare, and even the odd spot of WiFi for those who can’t live without it! This is what you get at a remote fly-in wilderness resort in British Columbia’s deepest wilderness.
From the luxuriously appointed canvas tents of the Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge (nestled in the UNESCO-protected Clayoquot Sound Biosphere) to the floating sauna at Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort, located deep in the Broughton Archipelago – these wild places are hard to access and worth every penny. Even the journey is magnificent, with floatplanes or helicopters providing million-dollar views and delivering you to these remote destinations in style.
British Columbia - A Romantic Paradise Waiting to be Discovered
Does it rain a lot? Sure. Luckily there’s gourmet food, jaw-dropping scenery, and passionate locals waiting to share British Columbia’s best-kept secrets with you and the one you love. Steal a kiss under an umbrella, hold hands in a private helicopter, and marvel at the scenery (and your love) over a champagne picnic on a glacier. This is British Columbia, what’s not to love?
