Rocky Mountains snow

Whether it’s for Valentine’s Day or just a romantic getaway, Colorado has something to offer everybody.

You can enjoy The state’s breathtaking scenic landscape year-round, including: natural hot springs, the headwaters of seven major rivers, many peaceful lakes and reservoirs, 13 national parks and monuments and of course world-class ski resorts for some of the best winter skiing found anywhere.

If romance is your desire, we’re offering 5 different Colorado locations to excite your senses and enjoy the scenic beauty of the mighty Rocky Mountains:

Telluride Colorado
Telluride, Colorado

Sight:
Strap on your snowshoes or cross-country skis and head out on a romantic backcountry adventure to Trout Lake on Lizard Head Pass near Telluride
Enjoy the stunning views of the majestic San Juan Mountains and feel like you are the only two people in the world. The old railroad grade on the east side of the scenic Trout Lake is groomed for approximately 4.9 km (one way) to the top of Lizard Head Pass, providing excellent intermediate cross-country skiing terrain and intoxicating views in every direction. The Nordic Center in Telluride Town Park offers cross-country rental equipment, trail maps for the area, and lessons. For added romance, pack a picnic to enjoy while gazing out over Telluride’s picturesque landscape.

Smell:
Take a tour through Colorado Wine Country In Grand Junction and Palisade, the gateway to nearly 20 wineries.
Wine tasting is a romantic experience made even more charming while being escorted through the vineyards in a limousine. The relaxing tours allow couples to admire the beautiful Rocky Mountain and canyon
scenery while the floral, herbal, woodsy, and fruity aromas of Colorado grapes tickle samplers’ noses. Learn about the growing conditions, grape complexity and “behind the scenes” winemaking processes from the down to earth wineries and local experts on the expanded tours. For a more active twist, tour Colorado Wine Country on a leisurely bike ride and picnic during the warmer spring and summer months.

Touch:
Rekindle the romantic spark while soaking in one of Colorado’s naturally heated, geothermal hot springs as snow softly melts into the heated pools.
For optimum romance, slip into a private tub like The Lorelei at Wiesbaden Hot Springs in Ouray. This secluded soaking pool is fed by a waterfall from natural hot springs sources and is privately enclosed. To further stimulate your tactile senses, indulge in one of their luxurious and soothing spa treatments.

Sound:
The gentle rocking and distinct whistle of a historic train transports its passengers back to the romantic era of traveling by train.
The five-hour journey to Cascade Canyon on the coal-fired, steam-powered Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad delights travelers with its calming lull and endless breathtaking scenery of San Juan National Forest.

Taste:
For a true taste of Colorado, discover tranquility while snowshoeing or cross-country skiing beneath the moonlight to an elegant candlelight dinner.
Diners will savor the crisp alpine air along the one-mile hike, and then relish the four-course gourmet dinner. Bask in the warm glow inside the yurt and cuddle up close to your beloved while enjoying the rich flavors of Colorado wild game. Dinner at The Tennessee Pass Cookhouse outside Leadville is by reservation only. Steal a kiss on the hike back to the lodge following dinner underneath a blanket of twinkling stars.
