If you’re planning a honeymoon in Canada, then save time and narrow down your list of possibilities! Here are 5 Canadian honeymoon spots that are guaranteed to give you a romantic getaway that you’ll never forget! Travel wisely across the true north.
5. Honeymoon Pick: Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
This low-key romantic locale is the perfect honeymoon stop for East Coast brides. You’ll love the simple charm of the countryside, the breathtaking views, fresh seafood, cozy maritime pubs, and having all the time in the world to enjoy your time as newlyweds. And the music. They say there are more fiddle players per capita here, compared to anywhere else in the world – so get ready to move those feet and dance with your love!
4. Honeymoon Pick: Niagara Falls
No list of honeymoon destinations in Canada would be complete without Niagara Falls – newlyweds have been honeymooning here for over 200 years! First, you should book a boat ride to the base of the falls – there is nothing quite like the experience of getting up close and personal with falls the size of this one. Then get your fancy pants on (and bring your wallet!) and head for the largest and most elegant gaming casino in Canada: The Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort. And to balance out the adrenaline rush of the falls, and the suspense of gambling at the casino, be sure to allow for some tranquil time at the Botanical Gardens and Butterfly Conservatory.
3. Honeymoon Pick: Vancouver Island
The beauty of a trip to Vancouver Island is that you get the fast-paced sophistication of a major urban center in Victoria, but you are just a short drive away from the gorgeous rugged wilderness. You can head for Clayoquot Sound to check out the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Or how about starting your day with an invigorating hike in the backcountry rainforest, and ending it with a romantic dinner in a gourmet restaurant at night. Foodies will love the regional cuisine, and can indulge in local delights such as duck and venison, vintage local wines, and specialty organic cheeses. There is also a wide range of accommodations to choose from, from romantic budget bed and breakfasts to luxury 5-star hotels.
2. Honeymoon Pick: Banff National Park
Banff is a world-class destination right here at home – why not check it out for your honeymoon? Cool crisp air means lots of snuggles with your love to keep warm, the views are to die for, and what could be more romantic than taking a dip in the hot springs and enjoying the breathtaking mountain views that stretch out before you? Lake Louise is a particularly popular destination within the park, but try to avoid the crowds by sticking to a trip in spring or fall.
1. Top Canadian Honeymoon Pick: Quebec City
So if Paris is too expensive, how about immersing yourself in french culture right here at home? In one of Canada’s most romantic cities too. You’ll love strolling the old cobblestone streets of Quebec City, ducking into a little creperie for a feast of crepes stuffed with anything your heart desires, and holding hands tightly as you make your way down Breakneck Stairs, which is almost 300 years old. Book a cruise down the historic Saint Lawrence River, and enjoy the views of the 18th century architecture before you. Take an evening carriage ride through old Quebec, and not to worry, you can snuggle under warm blankets if it’s winter. The historic buildings are a feast for the eyes, and there is lots for lovers to see and do here.
Enjoy Your Canadian Honeymoon
Your honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy that unique feeling of being newlyweds, alone, and uninterrupted. Make the most of it by choosing a Canadian honeymoon destination that both of you will love, and it’s sure to be full of memories that you’ll cherish for years to come. In fact, you can have a destination and party with only your closest friend and family (and don’t forget destination wedding favours)!
