A romantic vacation to a mountainous wintry destination will offer solitude, breathtaking views, and, best of all, lots of great opportunities to snuggle in front of a fireplace. 

For adventurous, outdoorsy couples, few things compare to a mountain getaway with uncrowded slopes and plenty of powder for skiing or snowboarding.

Not big on the adrenaline activities? Couples of any age can enjoy a good snowshoeing session. Rent a pair of snowshoes and trek through the snowy forests together.  


On a winter escape to Lapland you and your loved one might be lucky enough to end the day with a sighting of the Northern Lights. Lapland is loaded with downhill and cross-country skiing as well as snowshoe trails, snowmobile tours and husky sledding, so you won’t be at a loss for things to do. Choose a resort with a sauna and you can get nice and toasty and then run out for a traditional roll in the snow – it’ll be a holiday you won’t forget!    


One of the US’s best winter destinations, and home of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Park City has everything you could want from a winter wonderland: great snow, awe-inspiring views and deluxe accommodation. With a wide range of activities for all skill levels, Park City will have you and your honey playing in the snow all day, and ready for a decadent dinner and a soak in the hot tub. 


Patagonia, a region shared by Argentina and Chile, is an expansive area in the far south of South America that encompasses a portion of the Andes mountain range. Full of glaciers, lakes, national parks and mountains, this extraordinarily beautiful region offers world-class wintry activities. Many resorts offer gorgeous lake views set against the jagged peaks of the Andes. Whether you want a cabin, hotel or chalet, there are plenty of options to choose from, and every type of luxury is available to couples who want it.
