The first thing that pops in my head when I think of honeymooning is Hawaii or Bali. Although these beachy destinations are amazing, they may not be for every couple. Understandably, some newlyweds are seeking adventure, looking to relax, explore new destinations or perhaps just bring their dog along on their trip.
Where To Stay: Blue Mountain is nestled between the shores of Georgian Bay and the heights of the Niagara Escarpment.
Perfect For: The couple that loves to get outside and have an adventure, regardless of the season. Blue Mountain is jam-packed with outdoor activities all year long. From day to night skiing in the winter, to canoeing and mountain biking in the warmer months.
Activities: Besides all day and night skiing, ice skating, tubing, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, wine tasting, winter caving, zip lines, high ropes, mountain biking and segway tours there are nearby spas like the Scandinave Spa (shown above) and IWA spa to pamper yourself and rejuvenate.
Another fun activity is The Apple Pie Trail. Inspired by South Georgian Bay’s apple-growing history, bringing together culinary, shopping, adventure, farms and other local experiences that celebrate local history and reinterpret the mighty apple for the 21st century.
Bonus: Keep up with your fitness routine while enjoying the fresh air and views of Blue Mountain. Stay motivated with the hotel’s RunWESTIN program, and take advantage of guided group runs, running maps and more. Plus at most Westin Hotels they will deliver the latest New Balance® gear, including apparel and shoes, right to your guest room. Shoes come with brand new socks, which are yours to keep post-workout, and all of the clothing is provided fresh and clean.
