Prepare for a Romantic Honeymoon in Jackson Hole, WY

It is important to note that the beautiful scenery, classic accommodations, and plentiful activities in this town make it the ideal destination for romantic trips. When planning a honeymoon, this is a perfect choice.

Just like every other wedding event, the honeymoon is only as breathtaking as the preparations. Don’t let a perfect destination like this get spoiled because you didn’t plan everything.

Book your hotel well in advance, make reservations for dinners, if you want breakfast or lunch in your room, make sure the hotel you choose has what you and your partner like.

Romantic Hiking Trails to Enjoy with Your Honey

If you are not experienced hikers, plan a short hike and make sure you have the proper clothing and hiking boots. The last thing you want is blistered feet on your honeymoon.

Grand Teton National Park is a must for sightseeing and plenty of pictures. There are many trails for beginners to novice to avid hikers. The price is $20 per person when hiking, biking, or horseback riding, and $30 per vehicle, including motorcycles and ATVs.

You might want to hike Phelps Lake Trail, Moose Ponds Trail, or Garnet Canyon to Cleft Falls. Depending on you and your partner’s enthusiasm for hiking, you may want to do all three.

However, make sure the hotel room or rental you choose has easy access to a hot tub or Jacuzzi to relax your muscles after a long hike.

Spas and Massage Experiences to Relax in Romantic Luxury Together

Speaking of tired muscles, a luxury resort and spa experience that includes couple’s massages, facials, and other romantic experiences is always a good honeymoon choice.

Rustic Inn Creekside Resort and Spa at Jackson Hole is well known for its spa, pool, and resort experience. For those looking for more of a day spa experience, Olga's Day Spa is also both well-reviewed and popular.

Be sure to book couples' experiences in advance and always ask for special package menus if available to best enhance your time. A massage for a couple usually starts at $100 for 30 minutes and goes up from there depending on length and specialty, like hot stone, shiatsu, or Swedish. Many spas will send a masseuse or two to your room.

Horseback Riding for the Adventurous Romantics

Consider the time of year, your experience level, and the cost before planning for a romantic horseback ride. According to Yelp, both Spring Creek Western Riding and Willow Creek Horseback Rides are very well-reviewed. They offer many different price ranges for horseback riding tours and experiences in the Jackson Hole, WY area.

The typical price starts at $115 for a one-hour ride, up to $355, for a full day with lunch and fishing. What’s more, you can usually customize your ride by calling ahead.

Be sure to wear long pants, closed-toed shoes (boots are preferred), a light jacket or sweatshirt, sunscreen, bug spray, and your Wyoming fishing license if you intend to fish. But don’t worry about a backpack; they’ll provide a saddlebag.

Where to Eat During Your Honeymoon Stay

In many cases, depending on where you stay, you will undoubtedly want room service for some meals, but there are a large variety of romantic dining options in Jackson Hole.

Snake River Grill on E Broadway and Gun Barrel on W Broadway are two highly recommended spots for fine dining in the area. The Blue Lion is another popular choice. Book a reservation well ahead of time, and be sure to let the restaurant know that you are celebrating your honeymoon.
