Romantic Escapes from the Toronto Winter

When it comes to wintertime fun with your significant other, Snuggie Sutra can be fun, but eventually she may want to leave the house. Here, some ideas for a romantic escape in Toronto.

Couples Therapy
Unwind in the Couples Suite at Yorkville’s Novo Spa. Shower in a rainforest cascade or relax to the sensation of warm basalt stones with a hot rock massage. From $236. Novo Spa, 66 Avenue Rd., 416-926-9303.

Dinner for Two
Get cozy in the kitchen with Dish’s Date Night couples cooking classes. Upcoming classes include “Sizzling Shanghai” featuring lip-smacking Hunan cumin ribs. $125. Dish Cooking Studio, 390 Dupont St., 416-920-5559.

Stay in Bed
For the most intimate of escapes, book a night at The Drake, complete with in-room couples massage, wine and breakfast in bed. From $509/night. The Drake Hotel, 1150 Queen St. W., 416-531-5042.

Hit the Slopes
Just an hour north of the GTA, a roaring fireplace, bubbling hot tub, and luxurious loft suite await you: Tear up the slopes at Horseshoe – or don’t. From $219/night. 1101 Horseshoe Valley Rd., 416-283-2988.

Get a Yurt
While these year round tent-like structures do have electric heating, the biggest attraction of winter camping is making your own heat. At the Mew Lake Campground in Algonquin Park, seven yurts are available through the winter; they can accommodate up to six people if two’s not enough company. From $91.50/night, 1-888-668-7275.
