If you like to ski, then yes, you can even do that in the spring – in popular resort destinations like Banff and Whistler, the ski season often extends until the end of May!
And if you like the the now, then consider heading north – a trip to see the polar bears in Churchill, northern Manitoba, would make for a very memorable and unique honeymoon.
