Top 5 Valentine’s Day Ideas in Jackson Hole

While Jackson Hole may be best know in winter for its skiing, there are many romantic adventures for couples this February 14th.

Looking for romantic date ideas for this Valentine's Day in Jackson Hole? We have a few suggestions for activities that will bring you two closer together:

1. Sleigh Ride in the National Elk Refuge

A horse-drawn sleigh ride through our National Elk Refuge is a must: Sit close to your partner and share a blanket while your cowboy guide explains the uniqueness of this refuge supporting 8,000 elk. There’s no better way to get so close to giant bull elk than this. Be on the lookout for other animals like bald eagles, coyotes and trumpeter swans. View winter elk images.

2. Snowshoeing in Grand Teton National Park

For a different kind of adventure, make a reservation to go snowshoeing in Grand Teton National Park. This interpretive walk through a wintry wonderland guided by a park ranger offers the chance to learn about the area and spy for various wildlife.
