Valentine’s Day in the Romantic Rockies

If you’re trying to find the perfect place to spend this Valentine’s day, look no further than Canmore. Nestled in the Rockies and ringed in evergreens, Canmore is a known aphrodisiac that has attracted visitors for its natural beauty and quaint village streets alone. However, that’s not all there is to offer, especially for a day as special as Valentine’s. So this February 14th, consider these suggestions for creating the perfect lover’s getaway.

Canmore Winter Carnival

Start the day off at our Winter Carnival, where you can witness activities such as log-sawing, ice carving, dog-and-sled races, and even Kid-n-Mutt races. You’ll also be able to partake in classic winter activities such as pond curling, street-skiing, and plenty more. The festival runs from February 13th to March 1st, so even if you miss it the first day, there’ll be plenty more to see.

Valentine’s Day Craft & Artisan Market

Once you’ve enjoyed the carnival, head to the Valentine’s Day Market where you can buy your sweetheart a token of your love. With stalls staffed by local artisans, you’ll be able to find anything  from handmade pottery, jewelry, knitting, photography, books, and art. If you want a snack, you can head to the Black Forest Bakery, and if you want to be part of the action, you can head to the craft table or get your own craft kit—the DIY heart ones are expected to be a big hit!

Tapas Restaurant

At the end of your romantic day, sit down at one of Tapas Restaurant’s tables for two, candlelit and surrounded by Spanish-style murals. Voted Most Romantic Restaurant in the Rockies, Tapas is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, and the Spanish and Old World cuisine will be sure to leave even the most timid Casanova a regular Don Juan. Be sure to reserve in advance!

At the end of your romantic day, we’ll have a cozy room waiting for you. Treat yourself to a suite or a Jacuzzi room. Or, if Valentine’s Day isn’t the same without your favourite pet, book one of our pet friendly rooms. We look forward to your visit!
