With February 14 just around the corner, it’s safe to say that love is in the air.
Whistler is a popular destination for lovebirds seeking a romantic getaway – not just for Valentine’s Day, but year-round. We’ve got all the typical components of a Bachelor-worthy date – luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and so forth – but we’ve also got a special, secret ingredient: awesome activities.
We’ve highlighted a few of our favourite romantic Whistler activities below. Some take place during the winter; others, during the summer; and a few can be enjoyed 365 days a year.
Let us know – which one of these is your dream Whistler date?
A Sleigh Ride Together With You
Is there anything more romantic than snuggling up under a cozy blanket with your loved one in a Whistler winter wonderland? We think not, and that’s why the Romantic Sleigh Ride on Blackcomb Mountain tops our list of romantic Whistler activities (it even has romantic in the name!)
If you’re planning to pop the question on your Whistler getaway, this is the best way to do it – let us know when you book the activity, and we’ll help make it extra special.
Experience a Taste of Whistler
If your love language is food, Whistler Tasting Tours is the perfect activity for you and your sweetheart. Guided by a knowledgeable (and food-loving) local, you’ll get the VIP treatment as you hop through some of Whistler’s best-known restaurants. There are several experiences to check out: the Finer Things tour, the Hidden Gems tour, the Lunch tour, or – our personal pick for a decadent romantic night out – the Dessert tour.
A Day at the Spa
It’s not hard to relax at the Scandinave Spa – the sprawled grounds in the middle of the woods seem to have a magical, instantly relaxing affect. The hydrotherapy pools, baths, saunas, and solariums help, too – plunging into different temperatures is about as soothing as it gets. Kick up the romance factor a notch by indulging in a Duo Swedish Massage, and you’ve officially got yourself a romantic date.
Whistler From the Sky
Looking for a Whistler experience you won’t soon forget? Go all out with an aerial tour of Whistler with Whistler Air. Hop aboard the seaplane (docked on Green Lake) and check out Whistler like you’ve never seen it before.
All of the tours are incredible, but the Alpine Lake Landing Tour offers the opportunity to check out some stunning alpine lakes up close and personal – you’ll definitely want to bring your camera for this one. Note that tours are only offered in the summer.
Take a (Romantic) Hike
Not all romantic experiences come with a hefty price tag: hiking through the Whistler and Blackcomb alpine will only set you back the price of a summer sightseeing ticket, but the views are priceless. Choose a sunny summer day and pack a picnic, then explore the trails with your loved one. There are options for all levels, so you can enjoy a sweet romantic stroll or a grueling trek into the backcountry – or something right in the middle.
