When it comes to honeymoons or romantic getaways, Canada has all a pair of starry-eyed lovers could dream of. With an area of 9,984,670 square kilometres, it won't be hard for you and your loved one to find a favourite place in this vast nation.
From sophisticated cities with an array of twinkling lights such as Toronto, to the vast mountainous landscapes of the Canadian Rockies, there are plenty of places to nestle away for a dreamy Canadian honeymoon.
There's also something for every season. Canada is perfect for a holiday or honeymoon during the winter, when a picture-perfect blanket of snow coats the country. Head to a world-famous skiing destination like Whistler, Banff or Tremblant and hole up in a cosy chalet for a week or two, hitting the slopes by day and sipping on cider or a hot chocolate by night. Explore the fairytale winter villages and if skiing isn't your thing, why not hide away in a quaint cabin in the woods, with plenty of privacy and surrounded by stunning scenery? This is pure winter romance at its finest.
Canada's beautiful natural environment is certainly on show in the summer, too. This is the perfect time for couples to indulge in nature hikes together. Tackle the West Coast Trail that traverses the coastline, or try the Rainbow Range Trail that will treat you and your loved one to spectacular mountainous vistas. There are plenty of national parks and stunning forest areas all around the country, so there is no shortage of easier day walks, either. The perfect honeymoon for couples who love nature and who want to visit Canada together.
Then there are the bustling cities, full of life and flair. If you want to infuse your honeymoon or romantic getaway with a hint of the French, try Montreal or Quebec. In these cities you'll notice the French language is used regularly, so brush up on your 'Bonjours' and get a taste of Europe! Truly a unique honeymoon destination, Quebec City was originally the only city in North America to be completely surrounded by a wall and is full of historic buildings and quaint, narrow streets. A couples' getaway in Quebec will have you regularly stopping to remind yourself you are in North America, and not Europe.
When it comes to sophisticated city living, Toronto has it in droves. This city's bright skyline could rival New York! Stroll the streets to take in the ambiance, discover the aromas and flavours of the famous St. Lawrence Market full of delectable produce, head to the top of the CN Tower and head to Queen Street West to sip on cocktails at some of the best bars in town. If you are the kind of couple who love your urban escapes where there is always something to do and see, then Toronto will be, to your mind, your honeymoon heaven!
Vancouver is another delightful city to keep in mind for your couples' getaway or honeymoon. This is one of the most beautiful cities in North America, surrounded by snow-dusted mountains, green forest and a beautiful harbour, Vancouver provides the perfect balance of city and nature. Those who love the outdoors can easily explore city beaches, islands and activities out on the water such as kayaking, just a hop, skip and a jump from the central city. Days and nights can also be spent in town enjoying the stylish shopping, bars, restaurants, architecture and more.
Then there are the smaller, lesser-visited gems that have a special charm all of their own, such as Calgary, Winnipeg and Whitehorse – just to name a few.
Wherever you go your romantic getaway to Canada is bound to be spectacular. For the ultimate Canadian honeymoon or romantic holiday, fly into one coast and train, drive or fly to other parts of this vast but unique and incredibly beautiful country.
