Honeymoons in Vancouver
You’re sure to fall in love again when you celebrate your honeymoon in Vancouver. This modern city is set on the ocean, and surrounded by the amazing scenery typical of British Columbia, Canada’s most western province. People are out of doors all year round in this young city, and you’ll come across hoards of cyclists, joggers and inline skaters all taking advantage of the mild weather. A honeymoon in Vancouver brings unlimited potential for those seeking an active vacation, but it’s not only for the sport-minded.
Vancouver has been ranked as one of the most liveable places on earth, proud of its unpolluted natural surroundings and rich cultural scene. Due to the number of feature films which are produced in Vancouver, the city has earned the nickname ‘Hollywood North’. While on honeymoon in Vancouver you might even be lucky enough to come across a genuine celebrity! While English is the official language, the large immigrant population has brought in a number of other languages, and English is now the native language of only 48% of residents. This is a truly international city, and a honeymoon in Vancouver will provide you with the opportunity to explore it in more depth. Vancouver is known for being divided up into separate neighbourhoods, each possessing their own original cultural and ethnic feel.
Definitely consider the following activities when planning your honeymoon in Vancouver.
- Take a ride through world famous Stanley Park on a horse-drawn carriage. Consisting of 1000 acres of pristine nature, plus home to the Vancouver Aquarium, you will need at least a couple of days to get a real feel for the park.
- Cross over the Capilano suspension bridge. You may need to hold hands as you make your way across one of the world’s highest and longest foot bridges, suspended 70 meters above ground. Suspension bridge tours of the rainforest are also available.
- Is a rainy afternoon keeping you hostage in your hotel room? Head over to Science World and rediscover your inner child!

When to Honeymoon in Vancouver
When to go:
With warm summers and cool winters, Vancouver experiences a moderate climate all year long. Rain is a regular occurrence, particularly from October through March, and an umbrella is recommended. For optimal enjoyment of the Canadian summer, with clear skies and plenty of sunshine, book your honeymoon in Vancouver between July and September. With temperatures remaining around 22 degrees Celsius, normally no higher, you’ll find it’s an ideal time to be outside. Winter temperatures rarely fall below zero, so a raincoat is more useful at this time of year than a heavy parka.
United Airlines depart Sydney with one stop en route to Vancouver. You can be there in approximately 19 hours!
Australian couples need a valid passport to enter Canada, but can remain as tourists for up to six months without a visa. Public transportation in Vancouver is well regulated and convenient, but a rental car is a good option for traveling to surrounding areas during your honeymoon in Vancouver.
