Are you looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day trip? We all know that a trip to Paris or Napa Valley can be romantic, but there are lots of other cities in the world that can ignite the spark. Whether you want to embrace the winter weather or travel to somewhere a little warmer, below are five romantic places to take your Valentine for a special getaway.
JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
Cupid’s favorite holiday technically falls at the end of winter, so embrace the season. Jackson Hole is remote, so it’s one of the least crowded places to choose if you’re looking for a winter wonderland. Hit the slopes at one of the five ski resorts, take a sleigh ride through the Elk Refuge, or take a Dog Sled Ride to Granite Hot Springs. After your day out in the snow, cuddle up together at one of Jackson Hole’s many B&Bs or Resorts. Can’t wait to plan a trip? All the information you will ever need about this snowy city can be found on the dedicated Jackson Hole website.
HOTEL KAKSLAUTTANEN, LAPLAND, FINLAND
Hotel Kakslauttanen offers many different accommodations, one of the more exciting being its glass igloos. Cuddle up together in bed and gaze up into the Northern Sky. These igloos provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to view the Northern Lights. From the resort, you can go ice fishing, or take a Husky or Reindeer winter safari.

Temperatures here rarely get below 55 °F even in the winter months, so it’s a great destination if you just can’t take the cold winter weather anymore. The island has an abundance of protected reserves. Hike up to breathtaking mountain views or explore the many manicured gardens. Adventure seekers can scuba dive under the crystal-clear waters, and culture connoisseurs can explore churches and convents that date back to the 15th century. Of course, you’re never too far from the beach, so relaxing in the sand is always an option. Their official tourism site has an English option, so check it out.
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA
Savannah, GA is the go-to romantic getaway in the South-eastern United States, but why not try something a little different? New Orleans can be just as romantic. The charm of the French Quarter can make you feel like you’re on the streets of Europe. No other American city has such a distinct and unique cuisine, from beignets to crawfish to gumbo, you’ll find you don’t have enough time to taste all that New Orleans has to offer. Hit up a jazz club for a romantic night of dancing or enjoy the ambience at Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar. Right at the end of busy Bourbon Street, it is reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar in the United States.
NAKED STABLES PRIVATE RESERVE MOGANSHAN, CHINA
You’ll have to pack for cooler weather, February temperatures are generally in the 40s and 50s, but this 60-acre resort promotes wellness as a lifestyle. Stay in one of their cozy earth huts and restore your balance and spiritual and physical well-being. Connect with nature and each other by taking one of many hikes, bike riding tours, or horseback riding tours that they offer. You can also learn something new together; the resort offers calligraphy and tea-picking classes as well as yoga workshops, kite flying, and archery.
