Whistler’s Most Romantic Things to Do on Valentine’s Day

Whistler in the winter makes for the perfect romantic getaway for two. Whether you are looking for a date night or a daytime adventure, there are plenty of things to do in the village on Valentine’s Day.

Scandinave Spa:

Take advantage of the Crystal Lodge’s Relaxation Package and spend the day at Scandinave Spa, soaking in a number of hot baths and saunas. Or even better, register for a Duo Couple’s Massage, what gets more romantic than that?

Stroll Through the Village:

Take a wander through the village with your loved one, visiting all the shops on the pedestrian-only Village Stroll.

Date Night Dinner:

With over 100 shops and restaurants along the Whistler Village Stroll, there are plenty of places to stop by for a date night at a romantic restaurant in Whistler.

Basalt Wine & Salumeria

Just below the Crystal Lodge lies Basalt Wine & Salumeria, possibly the most romantic restaurant in Whistler. Sit by the fire on the outdoor patio and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch people go by. Indulge in Basalt’s Classic Cheese Fondue and Charcuterie Boards or satisfy your taste buds with the Cashew Crusted Rockfish. Check out Basalt’s full menu here.


Right across from the Crystal Lodge, Araxi is the perfect spot for the ultimate romantic dinner. Get dressed up and head over to Araxi to enjoy a variety of seafood options from jumbo prawns to oysters to a wild BC Sockeye Salmon Chirashi. Or enjoy the food from the land and order the Yarrow Meadows Duck Breast or Alberta Beef Tenderloin Steak. Check out Araxi’s full menu here.
