Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and there’s still time to plan a romantic getaway in the mountains to slow down and relax with your Valentine. We like to think that Estes Park has an activity suited for each love language. Exchange candle-lit conversation over dinner and wine. Give each other the gift of a massage at one of Estes Park’s many spas. Cuddle up in a cozy cabin or in an inviting hot tub. And get your fill of quality time on a serene snow-sparkling trail in Rocky Mountain National Park. 

 

Enjoy a Romantic Dinner & Drinks

Start with a glass of wine at Snowy Peaks Winery then head to Latitude 105, Bird & Jim or Twin Owls Steakhouse for special menus to celebrate you and your sweetheart. Looking for a post-dinner activity like the Be My Valentine Burlesque Cabaret at the Barrel? Find that and more here.

Slow Down and Rejuvenate 

Cut out of work early for the week and make a long weekend out of it - there's plenty to do. Indulge in a couples massage at Elements of Touch Wellness Spa, where you'll find romance packages that will bring you closer together. Take it up a notch and see what other mentally relaxing activities you can add on for a wellness-style weekend. No matter what you plan to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Estes Park, you’ll want to find a cozy place to stay with a hot tub or a fireplace as added bonuses.

Enjoy the Outdoors

There are plenty of hikes and snowshoe trails to offer. Don't know where to start? Here are our favorite winter hikes as well as an intro to winter hiking. Seek out a frozen waterfall or gaze at the stars at Lily Lake. And if you two are up for some backcountry skiing or splitboarding, take a class or hire a guide from Colorado Mountain School or Kent Mountain Adventure Center - nothing reignites a spark like trying something new with an adrenaline guarantee
