If you’re looking to escape the city for a weekend of romance, Whistler should be top of your agenda this summer. As well as being home to a growing number of great bars and restaurants, Whistler offers a bounty of great experiences. Relax and unwind with your other half and discover our top ideas for romance in the mountains.
Lose Yourself At The Lake
First of all, enjoy the late morning sunshine as the locals do. Lost Lake beach is within easy walking distance of the Upper Village, tucked away behind the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course. It’s a private hideaway, not often overrun with other people. Grab a coffee to-go and relax on the beach with a book or perhaps take a dip on warmer days. Because it’s so tranquil, it’s a great way to start your day.
New Heights Of Romance
New for 2018, Whistler Blackcomb opened their Umbrella Bar. This mountain-top patio sits more than 6,000ft above Whistler and features a collapsible roof. It can be opened up on summer days for uncompromising views of the surrounding peaks. Enjoy a ride on the gondola with your loved one and maybe even enjoy a short hike. To extend your adventure, we’d recommend taking the PEAK2PEAK gondola over to Blackcomb. From there, ride the Seventh Heaven Express to the summit. It’s all included in the ticket price. Keep your eyes peeled for bears!
A Date With A Therapist
For the ultimate indulgence, consider booking you and your partner in for a couple’s massage. The Spa At Nita Lake Lodge is award-winning and certified organic. The ila Couples Inner Connect is 120 minutes of uninterrupted “you” time. It includes a customised blend of signature treatments including the Kundalini massage, Ananda facial and full body scrub. Finished by a healing shirodhara oil treatment, the ila Couples Inner Connect is sure to relax and revive.
For a romantic meal for two in Whistler, we’d recommend straying slightly from the popular Village Stroll area. Fifi’s Bistro is tucked away in the Upper Village and provides the perfect atmosphere for an intimate supper. As well as their food being freshly prepared using local ingredients, their wine list would please an aficionado and John Doe alike. As a result we would highly recommend it.

Illuminate The Senses
Finally, end your day with a unique night-time stroll through the forests of Cougar Mountain to experience Vallea Lumina. Dubbed “A multi-media night walk in pursuit of hidden wonders”, the 1.5km trail takes visitors on a beautiful journey ‘toward a place filled with beauty, and proof that the legends of Whistler are true’. It is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance via the website.
