‘Tis the season for intimate weddings and extended honeymoons. ‘Tis the season of celebrating milestones in new ways. And ’tis definitely the season of rewarding yourself and your partner for surviving isolation together (even if only by a hair!).

Luckily, romantic destinations are nearer than you think. Canada is an ideal place for couples, with dreamy cities, starlit cabins, and waterfront suites that were made for smooching.

Meet me in QC. This gorgeous city truly has it all. Whether you’re rendezvousing at the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac, surrounded by cobblestones or hiding away in a Repère Boréal cabin for two, surrounded by trees, take your date night to the next level. Bike tours, whale watching excursions, foodie trips – it’s all here!

8. Muskoka, ON

You don’t always have to make the Muskoka trip a family affair. The private lakeside cottages and adults-only resorts here provide the perfect excuse to leave the kids at home. So, boat, barbeque, and bum around to your hearts’ content. You deserve it!

9. Fogo Island, NL

You can’t go to the moon and back for your love, but you can go to the edge of the world. Fogo Island Inn will show you how. Thoughtfully built so you can give some love to the environment, too, this one-of-a-kind property pops with amazing dining, instagrammable accommodations, and plenty of diversions to enjoy together.

10. Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON

If you love the beauty of Niagara Falls, but not so much the full-tilt energy of candy-coloured Clifton Hill, head instead to Niagara-on-the-Lake for some much-needed respite (and wine)! Everything about this sleepy town inspires romance: the iconic accommodations, beautiful river tours, horse-drawn carriage rides, and of course, private wine tours.
