Some local attractions include the Heart's Content Lighthouse and a few short coastline hikes. Trinity South D'Iberville Trail: Heart's Content to New Perlican is an easy 5.3km hike to the lighthouse if you'd rather walk than drive, it takes about an hour. Northern Point Hiking Trail is a beautiful, easy, 4km, 1 hour hike in Heart's Delight. Roam the shore and enjoy the sound of the waves. On the other side of the bay, Western Point Hiking Trail is also gorgeous. This hike is a bit shorter, only a 2km, 40 minute trek.

Whitehorse offers many activities for the adventurous couple. Kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, skiing (in the winter of course), and hiking.
