Home to more than 170 kilometres (106 miles) of cross-country ski trails, the Cariboo region is a popular destination for couples looking for a winter activity that lets you ski together at a pace that also allows for conversation as you explore the trails. Spend an afternoon on groomed cross-country trails at the 100 Mile Nordics Day Lodge, which offers rentals and is close to Fawn Lake Resort, where you can stay in either a modern or rustic style cabin for a romantic retreat.
If you already have your own skis, then the cross-country trails at Tweedsmuir Park are only a 30-minute drive from Eagle’s Nest Resort at Anahim Lake. Return after your adventure to enjoy gourmet food in the lakeside dining room and a hot tub under the stars.
Take a longer trip with a multi-day hut-to-hut cross-country skiing adventure with WhiteGold Adventures through the beautifully desolate Bowron Lake chain. Ski over snowy portages and frozen lakes, stargazing as you go, then snuggle up in front of the fire in your cabin or watch the Northern Lights before bed.
