#FairmontLovesFebruary – Romantic Getaway to Jasper
Canada’s Western Mountains are home to four beautiful destinations that contain everything required for a romantic getaway. Whether you’re looking to get away for a Valentine’s Day long weekend or to celebrate your love some other time in February, we’ve put together romantic recommendations for Jasper, Whistler, Banff and Lake Louise. All you have to do is choose!
Planning a Romantic Getaway to Jasper?
Celebrate your Valentine’s Day in Jasper National Park. We have some some suggestions that are perfect for lovers.
Stay: Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge – there is nothing more romantic than a getaway to your own cabin and having access to the amenities of the great lodge. Book a cabin with a view of Lac Beauvert to really dial up the romance.
Dine: Start your day with breakfast in your cabin and treat yourself to a mimosa or two. You deserve it! The Lodge is offering a selection of Valentine’s Day dining options from brunch at Orso Trattoria to Fondue For Two in The Emerald.
Explore: When you’re ready adventure, head over to the winter activities centre (located at the golf club) where you can rent a variety of winter equipment. For this romantic excursion we recommend snowshoes. Explore the property’s many woodland trails and trace the edges of Lac Beauvert, Lake Mildred and Tree Foil. Interested in venturing further afield? Book an excursion to Medicine Lake to learn about this mysterious disappearing lake.
(Perhaps leave Lake Mildred to the end so you can stop and enjoy the outdoor fire pit.)
Relax: Speaking of fire pits, how about a Jasper Park Lodge Fireplace Crawl? There’s no doubt, Jasper has many amazing fireplaces to enjoy, but why leave the grounds when there are plenty at the Lodge itself? Whether it’s après-snow or after dinner, it’s hard to beat the grand fireplace in the Emerald Lounge. And if you didn’t stop at the Lake Mildred fire pit during your day’s adventures, head over for a romantic evening skate and warm up afterward. Even better, book a suite or cabin with a fireplace and cozy up in the privacy of your own room.
Our final recommendation for the ultimate romantic getaway to Jasper, whether for Valentine’s Day or any other romantic escape… Why not put a ring on it? Few things are more romantic than eloping in a winter wonderland.
