What are the most romantic places to stay in British Columbia?

With so many options when it comes to getting away, it can be hard to know which location is right for you and your significant other. These are our favourite places for a romantic holiday on the West Coast:

  • Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley: Take your pick from a selection of reds and whites with a trip to the vineyards and wineries of Kelowna and Okanagan.
  • Whistler: Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean the romance should subside. Take a trip to Whistler for a weekend of frolicking in the snow and maybe getting your skis on.
  • Yoho National Park: Get among nature’s best with a stay in Field. Here you’ll be at the gateway for exploring the Rockies and neighbouring national parks.
  • Nanaimo: This port city offers beachside peace and parklands for exploration. We recommend checking out Englishman River Falls Provincial Park and Neck Point Park.
  • Victoria: Filled with history and home to the impeccably landscaped Butchart Gardens, Victoria is a one-stop shop for a romantic couple of days away from home.
