Whistler is synonymous with adventure and thrill, but definitely still passion. Located about an hour and a half from Vancouver, it is short drive for diverse and breathing taking landscapes. It really is the perfect date destination for couples who want to experience relaxation, exhilaration, and romance together!
Choose this destination for your couple’s date night and/or weekend, to light the fire, keep it burning, or reignite the flame. We think Whistler could have inspired a world of distressed home decor pieces because it’s the perfect date destination to live, love, laugh.
Why Choose Whistler for Your Romantic Getaway?
You get to live your own action-packed romance, going at speeds of 100km/hour down the “Public Skeleton” to take in the most breathtaking views – as if the slide wasn’t already doing it.
There’s more to Whistler, BC, than skiing, not that you shouldn’t ski on your trip. But with this scenic city as your oyster, you can experience a dozen more romantic adventures. Below are our recommendations for a romantic getaway to Whistler that will have you returning home feeling refreshed and with a ton of memories to cherish.
Scandinave Spa Whistler
Choose to explore the Whistler Scandinavian spa on your romantic getaway to Canada’s very own “Swiss Alps.”
Make Scandinave Spa the final stop on your Whistler itinerary. The iconic thermal bath is ideal for relaxing and unwinding after an adventurous escape from the city. You can spend the day soaking in the minerals, recharging your spirit, and recalibrating your body and mind.
You absolutely have to see Whistler from above to fully understand just how cool it is. Our company fly’s with Blackcomb Helicopters all the time, and we can’t say enough good things! See here for info.
Snowboard, ski, or bobsled your way down Blackcomb as your fall in love with your other half at one of the world’s most prestigious ski destinations. There’s more to love beyond skiing at Whistler’s famed ski resort.
Feel like an Olympian with passenger bobsledding at speeds of up to 125km/hour with an acceleration of 4 g-forces or a skeleton run of up to 100km/hour.
Nothing feels as Canadian as axe-throwing — a “sport” that includes throwing axes at a target in the name of fun. For an hour or three, you get to fine-tune your axe-throwing skills. Who knows when they might come in handy?
Canadian Wilderness Adventures
This company has tons of tours, our favorite being the sunset Jeep tour. We work with them for our proposals and elopements and woooow do they deliver. We see bears, deer, small wildlife, and unreal mountain top views.
Put the love of your life into perspective on the edge of Cheakamus Mountain. This 50-meter (160 ft) bungee over glacially fed Cheakamus River is one of the most scenic jumps in the world, being the perfect setting for a bit of adrenaline-filled romance.
Whistler Contemporary Gallery
Take a breather from getting your heart rate up by taking a stroll down Whistler’s Contemporary Gallery. This quaint art gallery has wall-to-wall fine art from Canadian and global artists. It’s the perfect location to dazzle your significant other with your knowledge about life’s finer things.
