10 of the Most Romantic Places in Canada


It’s no secret that Canada is home one to some of the most remarkable landscapes in the world, but did you know that it’s also home to some of the most romantic places on earth?

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day or thinking further ahead for a summer holiday, these beautiful places across the country are sure to ignite sparks and take your breath away.

From extraordinary mountain vistas to charming historic cities, here are ten of the most romantic destinations in Canada.


10. Newfoundland

The whole of this island province is a romantic dream vacation. You’ll be surrounded by spectacular natural beauty at Gros Morne National Park with its fairy tale fjords, cliffs, and waterfalls, which become even more fantasy-like when shrouded with ocean mist. There are plenty of picturesque coastal villages and postcard-worthy lighthouses, and you can even recreate a Titanic moment while iceberg watching off the eastern and northern coasts of the island.


9. Hot Springs Cove, British Columbia

With hot springs cascading through rocky pools into the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, this natural spa is literally a romantic hot spot. Found in Maquinna Marine Provincial Park, these natural hot springs are accessible only by boat or float plane. Add to that a serene walk across a romantic boardwalk in the coastal rainforest, and this might just be one of the most romantic secluded places in the country.


8. Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

The towering cliffs, stunning sandstone rock formations, and brilliant red mudflats alone are enough to take your breath away, but the impressive tidal displays in the Bay of Fundy, where an estimated 100 billion tons of seawater flows in just one tide cycle, are truly awe-inspiring. Take a romantic walk on the ocean floor amid towering flowerpot rock formations during low tide.


7. Jasper National Park, Alberta

From the majestic views to the spectacular stargazing at Jasper Dark Sky Preserve, Jasper National Park is a dream couples destination. Whether you take a romantic canoe journey across Maligne Lake (pictured above), the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies, explore the incredible waterfalls in the area, or just stop to smell the wildflowers in the meadows dotting Mount Edith Cavell, you’ll never be short of stunning things to see.


6. Niagara, Ontario

Niagara Falls was once a top honeymoon destination for couples from around the world, and the Niagara region hasn’t lost any of its appeal as a romantic destination. Explore the charming streets of Niagara-on-the-Lake, tour the vineyards dotting the escarpment in wine country, and of course take in the astounding grandeur of the world-famous Horseshoe Falls.


5. Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan

The prairies might not be the first place that comes to mind for a romantic vacation, but Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park in southwestern Saskatchewan is the perfect off-the-beaten-path getaway. Brimming with rugged beauty, the park is home to vast forests, rugged valleys, sandy beaches, and plenty of rare flora and fauna. The park is also a designated Dark Sky Preserve, so prepare for a romantic evening of epic stargazing.


4. Northern Lights, Northwest Territories

The aurora borealis can be seen from many parts of Canada, but the most vibrant and breath-taking northern lights displays occur in the far north. Holing up in a remote cabin for two has never been more romantic than when you can watch the vivid greens, yellows, blues, purples, and even reds dancing in the night sky above.


3. Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

The rolling coastal cliffs of Cape Breton Island offer spectacular ocean views and Cape Breton Highlands National Park is the perfect place for a tranquil hike for two to take in the wonders of nature. From the shimmering water to the fresh lobster to the cozy island villages, this island will quickly steal your heart.


2. Quebec City, Quebec

North America’s only remaining fortified city is a place of architectural grandeur and European charm. Originally home to the first settlers from New France, the city centre retains an air of French je ne sais quoi, with its cobblestone streets, historic Château, and classic bistros providing an overwhelming atmosphere of romance.


1. Churchill, Manitoba

Best known for being the “Polar Bear Capital of the World”, Churchill is also a must-visit destination for polar bear spotting, beluga whale watching, and taking in the astounding beauty of the northern lights. Enjoy the old-fashioned romance of the train journey from Winnipeg to Churchill, and then take in the incredible spectacle of the more than a thousand polar bears crossing the tundra north to Hudson Bay.
