8 Northern Lights, Northwest Territories
A honeymoon in Canada to see the Northern Lights would be amazing if couples aren’t frightened of the cold. Although the lights may be seen from many locations, Whitehorse and Yellowknife, the capitals of the Yukon and Northwest Territories, respectively, are two of the more popular (and populated) cities. Viewing packages are available at the Northern Lights Resort and Spa in Whitehorse, but tourists may also watch the lights from the front steps of their cabin.
7 Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
If couples prefer romantic road vacations, a journey to Cape Breton Island in the fall is ideal for their honeymoon. The Cabot Trail on the island is one of the most beautiful shorelines drives in the world, with the foliage turning vibrant colors of gold, red, and orange in the fall. Salmon fishing on the Margaree River, the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Ingonish Beach, and Baddeck are among the other tourist attractions.
This entire mesmerizing island province is a bewitching romantic getaway. Gros Morne National Park, with its fairy tale fjords, waterfalls, and cliffs, is surrounded by outstanding natural splendor, which becomes even more fantasy-like when veiled in ocean mist. There are lots of postcard-worthy lighthouses and gorgeous coastal communities, and couples can even relive a Titanic moment while watching off the iceberg of the island’s eastern and northern beaches.
5 Muskoka, Ontario
To visit an adults-only resort, couples don’t have to travel to Mexico. In Ontario’s Muskoka area, several amazing hotels cater uniquely to honeymooners. The beautiful adults-only resorts and private splendid lakeside homes give the ideal reason to leave the cute youngsters at home. So couples have just to go ahead and book a boat, cook or grill, and bum around to their heart’s desire because they have earned it!

Perhaps couples would rather spend their time inside a unique circular treehouse?
3 Trout Point, Nova Scotia
Why limit oneself to just five stars? Superb guided stargazing excursions are available at Trout Point eco-lodge, nestled in the UNESCO-listed Nova Scotia biosphere reserve. Visitors will sweat it out in the exceptional outdoor barrel sauna and magnificent wood-fired hot tub with their sweetheart. They can then toast the ideal retreat with mouth-watering and award-winning wines over a 4-course gourmet supper.
2 Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick
The jaw-dropping cliffs, beautiful sandstone rock formations, and vivid red mudflats are enough to steal couples’ breath away, but the Bay of Fundy’s awe-inspiring tidal displays, where an estimated 100 billion tons of saltwater rushes in just one tide cycle, are absolutely spectacular and breathtaking. During low tide, love birds can take a romantic walk on the beautiful ocean bottom among towering flowerpot rock unique formations.
1 Quebec City
Europe’s romantic cities, such as Paris and Rome, are well-known, but honeymooners may have a similar experience in Canada. With tasty pastries and restaurants, magnificent architecture, and cobblestoned streets, Quebec City is a slice of France in Canada. Stroll around Old Quebec, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and unquestionably the city’s most charming neighborhood, hand in hand. Couples can stay at one of the world’s most photographed hotels, the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. It’s just as lovely on the inside as it is on the outside.
