As such as vast, diverse country, there are no shortage of fabulous romantic getaway options in Canada. Whether you purchase purchased a home among Mississauga real estate and are considering an escape closer to home, or if you just want to sample some of the best it has to offer, you can’t go wrong with any of these destinations.
Victoria, British Columbia
The capital of British Columbia, Victoria is located on beautiful Vancouver Island and offers the feel of old England, complete with afternoon tea. Enjoy it at places like the Fairmont Empress, a grand hotel with its own team room and gorgeous views of the bay. World-renowned Butchart Gardens offers one too, along with the chance to stroll through colorful flowers blooming in every direction. You may want to embark on a romantic dinner cruise as well, with Fantasea Charters offering a cruise through the picturesque Inner Harbour, Gorge Waterway and historic Oak Bay along with a three-course dinner and drinks.
Tofino, British Columbia
Along the west coast of Vancouver Island Tofino faces the crashing waves of the Pacific and is surrounded by spectacular natural beauty in every direction. It offers a lot when it comes to romantic retreats, with places like the luxurious Wickaninnish Inn, where you can cozy up together and watch the storms roll in, or on a sunny day walk across Chesterman Beach hand-in-hand. You can also hike among 800-year-old cedar trees and take the short drive to Hot Springs Cove to soak in bathwater warm springs.
Fogo Island, Newfoundland
Escape to what feels like a whole new world off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador with a trip to Fogo Island. This incredibly remote island is located in Iceberg Alley, which means if you arrive in May or June, and sometimes into July or even beyond, you’re likely to spot a number of icebergs floating off the shore. For the ultimate experience, book the famous Fogo Island Inn. A destination in itself, it’s attracted quite a few celebrities with its unique, contemporary design, exceptional service and rooms that all have floor-to-ceiling windows for taking in the stunning water, iceberg and whale views.
Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
If taking one of the world’s most scenic drives isn’t romantic, we don’t know what is. Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia offers the chance to experience what’s often rated as one of the most stunning drives on Earth, the Cabot Trail. You can also look forward to lobster feasts, traditional Celtic music, beautiful beaches and countless charming B&Bs. Be sure to bring your binoculars, especially in the summer as this is one of the top places to see humpback and other whales.
Quebec City, Quebec
Quebec City offers an experience similar to Paris, as a slice of France right in Canada. It comes complete with outstanding bakeries and restaurants that serve French and all types of international fare, cobblestone streets and magnificent historic architecture. Old Quebec is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s especially romantic, home to the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac hotel, which dominates the city skyline as one of the most photographed hotels in the world.
