You Want Romance? Valentines Weekend in Whistler

This year, Valentine's Day falls on Sunday, making the perfect excuse for a romantic getaway weekend.

Valentines -Day -2016

Valentines in Whistler. At the height of one of the deepest seasons in recent memory, what could be better than to turn the day of love into a wintry weekend getaway?

Horse-Drawn Sleighs and Champagne Sabering...

And as we noted a few weeks ago, night life in Whistler offers surprises for just about any taste. Why not incorporate the Bearfoot Bistro's champagne sabering into your weekend for the ultimate experience? And then there's the classic horse-drawn sleigh ride, ending, if you like, with a fondue dinner for two?

The mere fact that you are in the mountains, under the stars, with the mountains rising up around you, cradling your view and offering unparalleled views may be romantic enough.

Hot Tub Under the Stars 

Coupled with a hot tub followed by a night by the fire, you're already set. And that is the bare minimum offering at Montebello. Add in even a couple extras, such as ice skating under the stars at Olympic Plaza, a morning hike along the Valley Trail, or taking in coffee at Lost Lake and you've got a near-perfect weekend.

Active or Quiet

But, of course, you're in Whistler. Home to bungee jumping, zip-lining, the best skiing and snowboarding in North America, and that is just the start. Pick your poison.

And if you'd rather stay quiet, you certainly have your options in this arena as well. Scandinave Spa offers silence with its Finnish saunas, hot and cold pools, hammocks and eucalyptus steam room.

Dine In or Out

Food is always an important part of any Valentines weekend, and here again, Whistler has what you're looking for. Classic is the RimRock Cafe, located in Whistler Creekside and a staple for romantic couples. Known for their casual gourmet atmosphere, you can expect to book early for a seat on Valentines Day.

So, of course, if you choose to dine in, we won't hold that against you. There's definitely a place for that in any Valentines weekend.
