Popping the question to your loved one is a life-changing experience, and such a special moment deserves a special setting. Whisk them away to the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest in Canada for a romantic break based at the stunning Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort, composed of just nine cabins set out over the tranquil waters of Mackenzie Sound. Nestled at the foot of a mountainside carpeted in evergreens, this remote resort is inaccessible by land; after flying in by seaplane or helicopter, you’ll enjoy champagne and a romantic meal at the end of the dock, watching as the sun sets and (with any luck) migratory orca swim past in the twilight – the perfect place to propose under the stars!
Spend the rest of the trip searching for the elusive and mythical spirit bear, a rare subspecies of the black bear found only here in British Columbia. Much like white buffalo, the spirit bear has long held a place of spiritual significance in the traditions of numerous Native American tribes. As well as hiking, kayaking, tubing and paddle boarding, you’ll also be able to learn about the unique relationship between BC’s First Nations and the wildlife that calls this magical part of the world home, including grizzly bears, bald eagles, elk, moose and sockeye salmon. Upon returning from the day’s excursions, fall asleep alongside your sweetheart in your own private cabin as the owls hoot and the wolves howl in the distance.
