There’s something about mountains that are intrinsically romantic. It could be the alpen glow, the feeling of freedom the slopes bring, or the fact that après is a big part of the culture. Here are ten romantic Whistler activities to ignite the romance in our beautiful mountain town.
1. SNOWMOBILE UP TO 6,000 FEET
Snowmobile up to 6,000 feet and enjoy a fondue dinner by candle light at the rustic Crystal Hut. Couples can even share a sled, although a note of caution, if your other half has a need for speed you might want your own. Check out more details at Canadian Wilderness Adventures.
2. PEAK CHAIR ON WHISTLER MOUNTAIN
Head up the Peak Chair on Whistler Mountain. If it’s a clear day you can see Black Tusk in the background as you take a great selfie by the Inukshuk. Add a touch of romance by packing some bubbly/sweet treats with you for an impromptu picnic.
3. THE BEARFOOT BISTRO
The Bearfoot Bistro does an daily oyster special from 3-5pm in their Champagne Lounge. What could be more romantic than oysters and Champagne?
4. BANFF MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL
If you’re not the overly romantic type, but still want to do something on Valentine’s weekend here’s an idea. Why not grab a ticket to the Banff Mountain Film Festival screening at Millennium Place? Journey to exotic locations, paddle the wildest waters, and climb the highest peaks, all from Whistler!
5. ALEXANDER FALLS
Whether you’re in hiking boots or snowshoes take a trip out to Alexander Falls in the Callaghan Valley. If you’re looking for a longer stay in the wilderness check out the Journeyman Lodge, a full service backcountry lodge, which we listed as one of the most romantic Whistler hotels.
6. WHISTLER’S ART GALLERIES
Whistler Village has some beautiful art galleries where you can see local and international talent adorning the walls. Inside the Westin, Fairmont, Hilton and Fairmont hotels you’ll find some fantastic places to explore, as well as on the main Village Stroll.
7. THE LONGHORN SALOON & GRILL
8. SCANDINAVE SPA
The Scandinave Spa is hidden amongst the forests of Lost Lake and is the perfect place to relax together. However, they do have a silent rule, so no chatting – you’ll have to just focus on the loving stares.
9. FIRE AND ICE SHOW
Every Sunday during the winter season the Whistler Blackcomb team puts on the Fire and Ice Show at the base of Whistler Mountain. Watch in awe as skiers and boarders soar through the air and flaming hoops. A great adrenaline boost to get the heart going.
10. THE FIREROCK LOUNGE
Get a place by the fireside at a hidden gem called the FireRock Lounge. They have a great B.C. wine selection and fantastic share platters made just for two. Over a loving dinner and drinks, take in the canvases on the wall showcasing the photography of Whistler’s Reuben Krabbe.
