You can fall in love all over again as you get pampered in the spa, or get a bird’s eye view on an exhilarating helicopter tour. The resort is also a short gondola ride away from the charming pedestrian village—a beautiful place to explore with someone special!

  2. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort – Golden, British Columbia

    Romance is definitely in the air at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. With luxurious accommodations, mostly condominium style, it’s perfect for a private getaway with your partner. Whether you’re skiing or snowboarding, you can relax your tired muscles afterwards in the hot tub, sauna, or steam room.

    The resort also has a variety of restaurants to choose from. Make sure you don’t miss out on the Eagle’s Eye Restaurant. It’s perched atop the mountain where you are sure to enjoy stunning views and incredible food; the perfect formula for romance!

    Nestled amongst the mighty and beautiful Rockies, the Lake Louise Ski Resort has one of the largest ski areas in North America, making it one of the best romantic winter destinations. It’s one of the most romantic ski resorts for numerous reasons—the stunning views being number one.

    For the ideal romantic escape, I’d recommend booking a stay at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks, and nestled beside a beautiful lake, a retreat here is sure to make sparks fly.

  4. Couples Resort– Muskoka, Ontario

    This couples-only resort is one of the most romantic ski resorts in Ontario. Tucked away in beautiful Muskoka, Couples Resort has it all! If you love the outdoors, this winter wonderland offers a variety of activities such as cross-country skiing, horseback riding, dog sledding and more.

    Prefer staying warm and cozy instead? Retreat indoors and get pampered in their spa, or feast on gourmet meals with your darling. Whichever activities you partake in, it will certainly be a romantic and memorable trip!

  5. Fairmont Hot Springs Resort– British Columbia

    It’s undeniable that hot springs provide the perfect ambience for romance, especially when you’re surrounded by blankets of snow. This is what makes the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort a great place to plan an escape.

    The resort is perched on the slopes of the British Columbian Rocky Mountains, and overlooks the Purcell Mountains, which offers breathtaking views sure to impress your significant other.

    Besides soaking in the hot springs, couples can also participate in a variety of outdoor or indoor activities. You can build a lifetime of memories together whether it is by skiing, taking in spectacular views of the Rockies on a scenic flight, or sipping on BC’s finest wines at a wine tasting.

I hope this list inspires you to plan a romantic getaway with the person you love. If you have kids in tow, and a private getaway isn’t possible, that’s alright— make it a family vacation instead!
