OK, let’s say you don’t have a Valentine this year. But you might still want to celebrate it, just for the fun of it..Since everybody is telling you how to be romantic, you might wanna try a different approach this year and defy all the social pressure. Grab your best friends who don’t “own” a Valentine and let’s set out  for a “Sex and the City-Break” adventure to Whistler. It might turn out into the best Valentine’s moments you’ve ever had so far! Whether you’re a Carrie, a Samantha, a Charlotte or a Miranda, chances are you’ve fantasized a little bit about living their fancy trendy Manhattan lifestyle. Well, now put yourself in their [fashionable shoes] and experience the NYC high life, Whistler-style. So round up your best friends and begin the adventure:

Valentine’s Itinerary:

From Vancouver Harbor you’ll board the seaplane and take off  flying up to Whistler. Prepare yourself for the absolutely breathtaking scenery. Sit back and relax as you gaze out the window and experience the majesty of beautiful British Columbia’s coastline. Soar above glaciers, volcanoes, and waterfalls as you’re transported to your destination like a true VIP.

Once you’ve arrived in Whistler, check in to Four Seasons, for a luxuriously pampering high-end experience. The Four Seasons offers what just might be the very best spa in Whistler, with eucalyptus steam rooms, ice showers and 14 blissful treatment rooms. What better way to begin your revitalizing getaway. Just slip on a bathrobe and slippers, grab a cocktail, and indulge in either a Melting Moments Massage or a full Signature Treatment. Or choose whatever is perfect for you. Heck, you can even bring the massage to your own room!

Next up, follow the girls’ footsteps and head out on a good old-fashioned shopping spree. You’ve come to right place, as Whistler is a shopper’s paradise. Here you’ll find most anything and everything you think you need (or didn’t even know you wanted). Fine artwork and high-end fashion, unique jewelry, the latest outdoor sports equipment and adventure gear, bathing suits, and camera. Brands like Eddie Bauer, Inside Out Boutique, Lululemon, Athletica, Mount Cashmere, Snowflake, and other high-end brands featuring top-of-the-line products. Retail therapy!

And last go release some more endorphins and satisfy your adventurous urges with ziplining. Harness up to the treetops cables and go zipping between the branches. What a way to share your Valentine vows with your pals!

Or take the girls and go for a romantic dogsledding! You will run around the beautiful Callaghan Valley, through the winding forest trails with the assistance of skilled “Mushers”. At the end of the tour you may stop for a warming drink and a sweet cuddle with the amazing handsome pups.

They would undoubtedly love to be your Valentine.
