Hit the Sea to Sky Highway and embark on a date night you won’t soon forget in Whistler, less than two hours away from Vancouver.
While hitting the slopes may not be for everyone, couples can always cap off their day with an evening spent at one of BC’s most magical outdoor attractions.
The idyllic winter destination is home to Vallea Lumina, a one-of-a-kind multimedia experience nightwalk nestled in the picturesque wilderness of Cougar Mountain.
It’s the perfect place to visit for a memorable date night—whether it’s a budding socially-distant romance or your longtime lovers.
Take a walk on the wild side with this incredibly immersive experience. Set off on your journey at the Base Camp, where you’ll be led through the forest by a series of multimedia installations.
As you wander down the trail, you’ll also come across several holograms clues that tell the stories of two long-ago hikers.
The 1km levelled and mostly flat trail will then travel back to where it all started.
The entire experience takes about an hour to complete depending on the amount of time you stop to marvel at the whimsical projections seemingly dancing amongst the trees.
