I live here, so maybe I could give you a few tips? I have to say, hands down, my favourite place I have ever been in Canada is Newfoundland. It is just a gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous place and the people are definitely the nicest I’ve ever met. We did the west coast from Port Aux Basque up to St Anthony where the viking settlements are, and it was incredible. Gros Morne National Park is like something from a movie.

Second to that, Vancouver and the islands off the coast of BC are incredibly beautiful as well. Very laid back, a bit more urban, and TONS to do. Tofino is supposed to be amazing, but every time we go to the West coast we run out of time before we get there!!! 

Are you thinking about going in February after your wedding or waiting a while? If in February and you’re skiers, hit Whistler(BC) or Canmore (Alberta) and you’ll be happy!

I didn’t honeymoon here, but I’m from here!

If I were going to honeymoon in Canada I would, hands down, go to the Banff area. It’s such an absolutely beauitful area with incredible scenery, great hotels/spas and tons of cool wildlife. You can do Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. Especially wonderful if you’re a skiier or snowboarder. If you’re planning to go this winter it’s a great year, as they’re getting record snowfall with the La Nina effect.

We honeymooned in Whistler and Vancouver. Had a blast skiing/snowboarding for 5 days. The village area is adorable. Lots of places to drink/eat/ and it’s a lovely spot for walking around.

And Vancouver was just beautiful. We stayed at the Fairmont. Gorgeous hotel. We didn’t have too much time there…just a day and a half. But we had so much fun just walking all over the city, exploring, eating, drinking, etc.

I can’t wait to go back!

Montreal, Quebec. We stayed at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth. We had our “kid day” of going to the famous amusement park there. We had our nights out at elegant dinners (Gibbys has the best steak in the world). We shopped in old montreal and the underground city (really cool!). You don’t need to speak French to vist.

@ItalianLady: I second Montreal too!

I can’t believe I forgot to mention this in my earlier post, as I lived in Montreal for five years and absolutely ADORE it. Wish I still lived there.

It is beautiful and romantic and has great choices for restuarants, hotels and shopping.

@farmersgirl: DH and I both said we thought Newfoundland would be an awesome place to visit in the winter. It does get REALLY cold out there though, but there would be tons of outdoorsy stuff to do.

If I were planning a winter honeymoon, I may think about the ice hotel in Quebec and then a visit to Montreal. There’s some decent skiing in Quebec so you could likely tie a few things in while you’re there. It looks like the ice hotel offers some cool (pardon the pun) packages with dog sledding etc which would be REALLY fun, I’ve always wanted to try dog sledding!

Ottawa! Beautiful in the winter, go skating on the canal, eat a beavertail, visit national museums, Parliament. buildings. Stay a night in Chateau Laurier. And when you tire of this lovely city, travel 2 hours east to Montreal and party it up!

We’re going to PEI, but it’s still a year away so I can’t say much.

@farmersgirl: We’re going to Hovey Manor in the Eastern Townships which is about an hour from Montreal.  There’s lots of cross country skiiing and snowshoeing in the area, as well as other winter activities like skating and dog sledding.  I’m so excited!  Good luck with your choice.

I live in the Vancouver area, and have lived in the Okanagan and the island.  Let me know if you have any BC questions 🙂
