A private sleigh ride for two.


Inverness Falls Resort, on Brereton Lake in Manitoba’s beautiful and rocky Whiteshell area, is ideal for the couple who is looking for a winter playground. Many suites, cot- tages and chalets are equipped with luxuries like fireplaces and spa tubs. Ask for one with an outdoor hot tub for a real treat. Here you can explore the wilderness together with the numerous activities available including cross-country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, ice-fishing and hiking. Snowmobilers may want to take their sleds to explore some of the 200 kilometres of groomed trails before heading back for some snuggling in front of the fire. Te resort rents out- door activity equipment. Own the night


Pretend it’s your one night to see Winnipeg and take the


town by storm. Go to as many places as you can; be a tour- ist. Start off with an early appetizer and cocktail, perhaps at Mitchell Block. If the dining room is full, stop by their upstairs lounge. Te bison carpaccio served with shaved parmesan and beef crackling will melt in your mouth. Pair it up with the baked kale, roasted garlic and goat cheese dip with the house-made flatbread and you may forget that this is just your first stop. Next stop, dinner. Head off to another nearby Winnipeg


favourite. Hy’s Steakhouse is elegant and lavish and their secluded dining room is perfect for a romantic dining expe- rience. Try their tableside service for a special treat. It’s cu- linary theatre and is sure to make for a memorable evening. Afterwards, attend some entertainment that you both


enjoy. Whether you’re catching a Moose game, headed for a night at the symphony or catching some of Winnipeg’s great theatre, the locations are all nearby. But don’t rush home after the event is over. Stop for a nightcap at Hermanos which offers late-night hours on Fridays and Saturdays. Experience the live samba or Chilean jazz while you order tapas. Heat up the evening with some tropical choices such as the Cachaca shrimp fin- ished off with spiced Brazilian rum or the grilled chicken skewers served with mango salsa. End the night by toasting each other with a glass of Argentinian malbec before head- ing home from your big night out. Plan your own night on the town and frequent all of your favourite places. Can’t help falling in love


Fall in love all over again with an F-Scape staycation at


the Fairmont. Check in early, so you can start off with a morning of ice skating on the Forks River Trail – one of the longest in the world. Afterwards, unwind together in the steamy thermal pools at Termëa spa, an easy 20 min-

ute drive from the hotel complete with valet parking. Te Fairmont’s certified tea sommelier will be waiting for you upon your return for an exclusive tea tasting. Learn how to blend winter favourites like spiced apple cider and receive two boxes of your favourite Fairmont tea to savour at home. Te F-scape can be booked until April 30, 2016. If this isn’t your cup of tea try one of their other romance packages. Many of our hotels offer special couple packages through- out the year, perfect for a extravagant night together. One of the Clarion’s romance packages offers an evening in an executive suite with a bottle of wine, cheese and cracker platter, two mineral pool passes, gift certificates to the Ur- ban Oasis Spa and a neighbouring restaurant of your choice along with a late morning check-out. Be a kid again


Re-live your childhood and remember why growing up


with Winnipeg winters was so much fun. Feel the rush as you shoot down the toboggan slide, the wind biting at your cheeks and bringing out that rosy glow. After a quick warm


Nothing’s more fun than a friendly snowball fight.


up why not head over to Fort Whyte for some cross-country skiing. Tey have oodles of trails to explore and when you’ve had enough come in from the cold for a freshly ground cof- fee at Buffalo Stone Cafe. Relax and chat while you look out over the lake and enjoy something from their daily menu selection. All items are cooked from scratch and taste amaz- ing. If you haven’t had enough of the great outdoors make a snowman or have a friendly snowball fight when you get home before heading in for a cosy night. A romantic ride for two


Probably one of the most romantic things you can do in the winter is go for a private sleigh ride for two. While there are a ton of places to go for sleigh rides in and around the city, finding one that will take couples on a private ride is a little harder. Fortunately, you can enjoy an old-fashioned sleigh ride for two at Miracle Ranch, near Bird’s Hill Park. Just remember to book ahead. A private driver will take you on a long winding ride


through wintery woods as you huddle together, faces close, your breath swirling and rising on the crisp air. A warm blanket to snuggle under coupled with the sound of bells jingling as the horses pull the sleigh through the snow really is a heavenly experience. Who knows, this might even be the perfect way to propose?
