Top 5 Adventure Honeymoon Destinations in Canada

An outdoor adventure trip - unlike a city tour or a beach vacation - is a great way to make your honeymoon memorable. What better backdrop than Canada where you can see everything from glaciers to rainforests?

Road trip to Cape Britton Island

There is only one way to see Cape Britton Island, via the Cabot Trail, a 185-mile highway around the northern half of the coast before crossing the Highlands. Off the coast of Nova Scotia, the island offers an opportunity to spend your honeymoon, where you can see views of forests, mountains, valleys, lakes and plateaus - moose, bears and eagles.

Break this beautiful road trip circuit by stopping at the small Gaelic and Akkadian fishing villages, which are home to seafood and lobsters. Take a break to enjoy the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast.

Whistler Blackcomb

If you spend your honeymoon between December and March, a ski trip to Whistler guarantees plenty of opportunities for adventure as well as pampering. The double peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb have more than 8,000 acres of slopes, so you can ski or snow for a few days before reloading a pistol.

There are snowballs and smooth tracks, as well as a variety of apricot-ski options - dine at restaurants like Christine's, and sip cool vodka at the Bearfoot Bistro's sub-ice room.

Northern lights in Yellowknife

Seeing the blurry sky phenomenon of the Northern Lights will make your honeymoon extra memorable. Yellowknife, the capital of northwestern Canada, is a great backdrop for doing so - thanks to its minimal light pollution and long winter nights. Pamper yourself with a hot drink and toss in the middle of the Arctic tundra and boreal forests.

Yellowknife's Latitude It's the best place to visit Aurora Borealis, and in the summer you see almost 24 hours of daylight - so your honeymoon trip should take place from mid - November to early April.

Vancouver Island

Couples who want to have an active honeymoon full of amazing sights should pack their hiking boots and head to Vancouver Island. It is a beautiful place with wide, flat sand, horizon, temperate rainforests, mountains and beaches that stretch all the way to the Pacific coast. Whether you like a leisurely walk or a few days of thigh-burning thirst (broken by the tastes of local wineries and state-of-the-art breweries), the choice of the upgrade is huge.

Three of the best are the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, which runs along the west coast of the island (and can be broken into smaller pieces), the Wild Pacific Trail (climbing rocky mountains between lighthouses, the old-forested Sitka Spruce before entering) and Cape Scott. Trail (across grasslands, salt marshes and white sand beaches).

Haida Gwaii

Haida Guai's remote archipelago is often cited as the best destination in the world for kayaking. Located 100 kilometres off the west coast of Canada, it is a place of extraordinary natural beauty and biodiversity that will accompany otters and dolphins as you explore its obscure shores.

The freedom and serenity of the kayak are unmatched, but be sure to reserve a guide as the open water here is a bit dangerous to navigate alone. You camp every night as the sun shines through the clouds, finding sheltered bays and grass and clearing ancient cedar and Sitka spruce forests.

The islands have no roads or trails - they have only been inhabited by Haida since the end of the last ice age, making them one of the oldest found populations in the world.
