Unusual Valentine's Day Travel Ideas

Each Valentine's Day, we hear from travelers looking for destination inspiration around this special holiday. To help inspire your next getaway, we've rounded up a few unique destinations that may be of particular interest to the romantics among us. If you're looking to surprise your sweetheart with a trip that is out of the ordinary, we recommend considering some of the following:

Lover's Tour

You can't go wrong with three towns named for matters of the heart located in the same province. The tiny but charming towns of Heart's Content, Heart's Desire, and Heart's Delight are all located in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Share selfies from all three to have a trifecta of romantic locations on your social feed.

Going Underground

If it's privacy you're looking for, you can't get much more secluded than the Mine Suite at the Sala Silvermine in Vdstmanland County, Sweden. This beautifully appointed suite comes with complimentary wine and cheese and is located 500 feet below the earth's surface. As a romantic bonus, the temperature hovers somewhere around 38 degrees, so you'll definitely have an incentive for a bit of cuddling.

Cold Feet

If you and your love are planning to take that special next step, you may as well be stepping onto the floor of a solid ice chapel. At Hotel de Glace in Quebec, the ice benches are thoughtfully draped in furs for the comfort of your wedding guests. We suggest you consider a similar theme in your nuptial attire, though, since the chapel is kept at 25 degrees to preserve its sparkling décor.
