What better place for romance then the winter wonderland that is Whistler, BC? Whistler has a smorgasbord of Valentine’s Day activities depending on if you want to relax and take it easy, drink and dance the night away, or experience spine-tingling adventure. Here are our top picks for Valentine’s Day in Whistler.
For memorable first dates
We Suggest: A Snow-Mobile and Dining Tour
What better way to make a first impression then charging 6000ft up Blackcomb Mountain on a snow-mobile to the charming Crystal Hut where a candle-lit fondue dinner awaits? Navigate your own snow-mobile or for a little extra romance go tandem, and snuggle to stay warm as you venture up the mountain.
Your snow-mobile and dining tour includes a traditional Fondue dinner (can you get more romantic then cheese and chocolate?), fine wines, live music and panoramic views of the surrounding Coastal Mountain Ranges with the twinkling lights of Whistler Village below.
For some intimate connection
We Suggest: Scandinave Spa
Re-kindle a romance and find a deeper connection at the Scandinave Spa. Surrounded my majestic old growth forests, with alpine views in the distance Scandinave is the ultimate oasis for romance. The Nordic-inspired spa features hot baths, cool plunge pools, relaxation rooms, a Finnish sauna and a Eucalyptus steam room. The ideal sequence is to move from hot, to cold to relaxation, and to repeat the circuit at least three times. Health benefits include cleansing the body, stimulating circulation and releasing endorphins. The entire experience is to be silent. The atmosphere lends itself well to an intimate and euphoric experience.
For some wining and dining
We Suggest: Whistler Tasting Tours
What’s better than going out for a nice dinner in Whistler? How about going on an entire tasting tour, visiting some of Whistler’s best restaurants, in a category of your choosing.
Those after some haute cuisine will love the Finer Things Tour which is a four-course dinner tour of Whistler’s best award-winning restaurants. The Hidden Gems Tour includes four local favourite eateries for those looking to experience Whistler’s best kept secrets. If you consider yourself more of a dessert fan then the Dessert Tour will surely please your pallet. Sample some of the tastiest treats and sip some of the coolest cocktails in town. A Whistler Tasting Tour is the perfect Valentine’s experience for food and wine lovers, and a great night out on the town.
For ‘The Big Moment’
We Suggest: Heli Tour
It is hard to think of a more extreme and romantic way to pop the question or celebrate a big moment in a relationship than on a helicopter tour. Whether it’s a private or semi-private heli-skiing adventure you will essentially have the terrain all to yourself. Picture this, an area over 100 times bigger than Whistler Blackcomb but only 50 skiers on average each day. That’s a lot of opportune moments to make the big question happen. Your only limitation is your imagination.
For some good ol’fashion romance
We Suggest: Sleighride
For a picture perfect romantic Valentine’s Day experience, how about a Whistler Sleighride? Snuggle up to your loved one as you ride upon a horse-drawn carriage through some of Whistler’s most marvelous scenery. You will be in a fairy-tail like setting, cozied up under warm blankets as you glide through a winter wonderland. Customize your own romantic sleighride or enjoy a 30 minute sleighride followed by a romantic fondue dinner.
There is definitely no shortage of romantic Valentine’s Day activities in Whistler to choose from. Why not make a weekend out of it? Check out our last minute deals on hotels and resorts in and around the Village.
