Are you planning on having another night of Netflix and chilling on the couch with your other half? If you answered ‘yes’ to that, then it’s time to plan a romantic getaway that does not involve cheesy movies and unhealthy snacks. The snow-capped mountains and some dope slopes in Whistler mountains are the perfect destinations to check out!
Explore by floatplane
The best way to discover beautiful Whistler is via floatplane. This unforgettable ride is scary, exciting and memorable for sure. You can capture unparalleled views of the countless lakes and the surrounding landscapes. However, this doesn’t come cheap. You can get a 30 min flight around Whistler for around CAD 200; if you can splurge a bit more, you can enjoy an alpine lake landing with lunch.
You must visit Brandywine Falls when you’re here. It’s located on the outskirts of the main town just 15 mins away from Whistler ski area hotels such as the luxurious Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside. The waterfall is amazing on its own but the site is also a stunning lookout spot over the valley below. If you’re on your way to Vancouver or heading to Whistler from that way, you must stop here and take in the scenic views.
Located just outside of Whistler, the Joffre Lakes is a sight to behold with stunning mountain peaks and glistening blue water everywhere your eye meets. This is one of the most popular hiking trails in British Colombia. The hike itself is quite rewarding with scenic views that will take your breath away but the real prize is the three lakes at the end of the main trail surrounded by a beautiful pine forest.
The River of Golden Dreams
The River of Golden Dreams sounds like the perfect honeymoon couple’s destination. You can take a romantic, relaxing kayak ride down the river with your loved one for a unique experience. You can explore the beautiful surroundings with your better half, starting from Alta Lake.
