12 Montreal Winter Date Ideas That Are Straight Out Of A Hallmark RomCom

Dinner and a movie are fun and all but have you ever had beers and gone tubing down Mount Royal? Montreal is filled with winter dates ideas, and we can thank the uniqueness of our city for this!

Let’s face it, cuddle season is upon us. People all over Montreal have officially begun to couple up to keep each other warm throughout the winter. 

Montreal is a city that has a certain romance throughout every season however, during the months of winter, there is a “je ne sais quoi” that makes it even more romantic. 

There are so many unique winter dates to be had throughout our city, that each of us should be taking advantage of. From festive drinks and hot chocolate tours to dog sledding and ice skating, this city is the ideal place to have a winter romance. 

Dog Sledding

Dog sledding is not only an out of the box date idea, but it is also one of the coolest experiences to take part in the winter.

Not many people realize that you can go dog sledding just 90 minutes from Montreal,

If you're trying to think of a unique activity to get you outside this winter, grab any person whose company you enjoy and make your way down to Mont-Tremblant!

Free Museum Visit At Foundation Phi

Not everyone is a fan of being outdoors when it's minus 0 C, so this is why spend a few hours at a museum is such a great idea.

There's something undeniably romantic about escaping the cold while connecting through your individual interpretations of the art that surrounds you.

The Phi Foundation is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to presenting contemporary art, and it's free!

Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing was something that always seemed like a strange activity to me - until I tried it for myself.

It may not be the most romantic activity, but it's definitely fun, which is what you want out of a date anyway, right?

You can basically snowshoe anywhere with snow on the ground. But making your route go through a forest makes the landscape around you a whole lot nicer.

Habs Game  

Going to a hockey game is probably the most Montrealer date I can think of, but this doesn't take away from how good of a spot it is to hang with a loved one.

The energy that fills the stadium gives fans a natural high. Going to a Montreal Canadians game is an experience and to be able to share that with someone special makes it even better!

Go Tubing On Mount Royal

No matter how old you are, tubing makes you feel like a kid again, which is why it's such a cool idea for a date.

Tubing on Mount Royal is the best during the evening, while the sky illuminates the hill. It'll leave you and your date can feel as though you're the only two people in the world.

Bring out that inner child living within both of you and get to know each other silly sides!

Illumi Light Village

There is something very magical about being surrounded by lights, snow and the person you care about most.

At Illumi, you can share a special kiss inside a massive Christmas tree of lights, hold hands through a magical world of lanterns, and warm one another up as you brave the cold together.

This will be open until January 5, 2020, so make sure to check it out before it's too late!

Have A Festive Drink At Miracle Bar

If you want to take your date to the heart and soul of the North Pole, then Miracle Pop Up Bar is the spot for you!

The fun and festive cocktails, ugly Christmas sweaters and holiday-themed décor take "let's go for a drink" to a whole new level!

There is something very romantic about this season and when you walk into this pop-up bar, all of that romance is emphasized - it's like Christmas on steroids.

Stroll Through The Mind Of Van Gogh

Starting on December 5, at the Arsenal Contemporary Art Museum, you can bring your date to an immersive and unique experience as you connect through the life and work of Van Gogh.

This temporary exhibit is one that will surely leave you speechless, but will also give you tons to talk about with your date! A beautiful 2 in 1. From the giant installations to the captivating and moving art covering the floor, it's sure to be a date that neither of you will soon forget.

Take A Hot Chocolate Tour Together

One good thing about the cold is that it gives you an excuse to drink your calories.

There are so many incredible spots around the city to stop for hot chocolate. And if you take a hot chocolate tour, you'll get to visit many of them at once!

There are few things more perfect than a hot chocolate tour date - it's warm, it's sweet, and it's delicious!

Rent A Unique Cabin Outside Of the City

When it comes to weekends away, the surrounding areas of our city have some impressive rentals to stay in.

Less than two hours from Montreal live some outstanding cabins that you and your loved one can spend some much-needed quality time in.

We're all looking for an escape from the city and if a weekend in Paris isn’t in the budget, then maybe a night or two up north is!

Go Ice Skating

Skating is one of the most Canadian things you can do. But, ot also happens to be one of the most romantic activities you can do during the winter, in my opinion.

In our city, there are so many outdoor rinks to glide through including Beaver Lake and Park Lafontaine.

If you're not super skilled on the ice, don’t worry, part of the fun of ice skating is making a fool of yourself and doing so can make for an even more memorable date.

If you want to leave the city, there's a torch-lit skating path in Ontario that will blow your mind!

Take A Cooking Class

Cooking is an exciting experience that can facilitate the connection between two individuals. By doing something together and working as a team, your connection will only grow stronger.

Throughout our city, there are a ton of fun cooking classes to go on, all of which are perfect for a date night.

Not only is this the kind of date you would see in a romantic comedy but, you get to eat the food after you make it, which makes the hard work all worth it.

With all these unique date ideas at your fingertips, there's no reason for you and your S.O. to stay cooped up inside all winter!
