Whistler in the Fall

Relax at the spa

Spend quality time with your partner by treating yourselves to a day at the spa. The Scandinave Spa is one of Whistler’s most popular attractions, where spa-goers can soak in a variety of cold and hot baths, as well as make good use of saunas and steam rooms. Other spas in the area include the Spa at Four Seasons Resort and Whistler Day Spa.

Ride side-by-side on a RZR tour

Take a RZR tour with your loved one and discover all the beauty Whistler’s backcountry has to offer while on four wheels. RZR tours make for a scenic off-roading experience that visitors love. Right now you can use the code RZR50 for $50 off a 2-seat RZR tour and code RZR70 for $70 off a 4-seat RZR tour.

Discounted tour deals are valid from Sept. 7 to Oct. 8 and are available for midweek only. Weekend tours without the discount are available until Oct. 11.

Wine and dine

Sometimes the best date night is a classic dinner out on the town (or village in this case). There’s a plethora of options along the main strip, including authentic Italian eatery II Caminetto, the upscale Araxi Restaurant & Oyster Bar and the charming Basalt Wine & Salumeria. More casual options include Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub and The Longhorn Saloon.

Fly high with Superfly Ziplines

Couples can get an adrenaline rush together as they travel at the speed of light (or approximately 100 kilometres per hour) side-by-side above the lush trees of Cougar Mountain. The ziplines are just over a kilometre long and situated 200 metres off the forest floor.

If you act quick, adventure enthusiasts can use promo code SUPERFLY35 for $35 off Superfly Ziplines.

Take a helicopter tour

Explore Whistler from new heights by going on a helicopter tour with your significant other. It’s an absolute must, whether it’s to celebrate a special anniversary, proposal, birthday or just because. Blackcomb Helicopters offer excursions with sweeping views of the region that will simply take your breath away.

Embrace the beauty of fall by visiting one of the many serene lakes in the area. Some of the best spots to go for a leisurely stroll in the crisp fall weather are the picturesque Green Lake, Lost Lake and Alta Lake. Bring along a cozy blanket and set up a picnic near the water to make it an even more memorable lunch or dinner date. Remember to bring a camera to capture the beauty.

Enjoy a fireside s’mores station

Craving something sweet? The Four Seasons Resort Whistler has an epic s’mores station that is open Fridays and Saturdays. After a day spent on the mountains, nothing beats just sitting by the fire pit and roasting marshmallows together. Graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows are the absolute perfect way to end the day on a sweet note.

Go axe throwing

Bring out your competitive sides by going axe throwing. Find Forged Axe Throwing at Function Junction in Whistler. Couples will learn one-handed and two-handed throws and will be hitting bullseyes within no time under the guidance of experienced coaches. It’s also a great rainy day activity, as it’s located indoors.

Walk hand-in-hand with your loved one through the immersive storytelling experience of Vallea Lumina in Cougar Mountain. Videos featuring beautiful music will be projected onto the lush trees throughout the trail walk before making your way back to the base camp, where you can enjoy hot chocolate beside a roaring campfire. If that doesn’t scream romance, we don’t know what does.


With so much to do, your romantic getaway for two will definitely be memorable.

With fewer crowds, cooler weather, and fall specials, Whistler becomes an even more magical experience.
