Your Guide to Yellowstone Trips for Couples
From horseback riding to sleeping under the stars, here are some romantic Yellowstone vacation ideas that adventurous couples will love!
Hike to a Waterfall…Or a Geyser
Yellowstone is home to towering canyons, colorful paint pots, cascading waterfalls, and spectacular geysers – and they are all just waiting to be explored! Take a scenic hike through the wilderness, and enjoy each other’s company while you take in the incredible views. Some of the park’s most popular hiking trails will lead you to Old Faithful, Tower Fall, Mammoth Hot Springs, or the Norris Geyser Basin. Or, take the road less traveled and find an intimate spot to lay out a blanket and share a picnic lunch. The possibilities are endless!
Watch the Sunset
There’s nothing like a magical sunset to end a perfect day in Yellowstone National Park. Prime sunset-viewing spots include Inspiration Point, the Canyon area, and Mt. Washburn. Sit side-by-side and recount the day’s memories while you watch the sun sink low into the horizon. Words just don’t do it justice; you’ll have to come see it for yourself!
Camp Under the Stars
Is there anything more romantic than spending a night together under a blanket of stars? Cody, WY, is just a short drive from Yellowstone and offers an authentic Western camping experience. Stay the night in our Cowboy Camp or Tipi Encampment, and immerse yourselves in the natural beauty and seclusion of the Wyoming prairies. The views from the historic rimrocks are simply breathtaking and offer the ultimate privacy.
Go Horseback Riding
If you’ve ever dreamed of riding off into the sunset, now is your chance! As well as being incredibly romantic, a Wyoming horseback riding adventure is a great way to explore the beautiful landscapes. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned cowboy, all levels of experience are welcome to enjoy a trail ride around our 10,000-acre ranch. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
