Romantic Getaways

Anchorage is the ultimate in romantic getaways: Experience epic romantic adventure under the midnight sun or the perfect romantic escapade in a winter wonderland. With awe-inspiring landscapes and activities, Anchorage redefines romance.


Paddle and pedal with your partner at stunning Eklutna Lake, in the midst of the towering Chugach Mountains. Kayak through miles of water and have a bike waiting for the return trip, or stick closer to downtown Anchorage, rent a bike and pedal down the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail to Kincaid Park – home to its own network of serene, secluded trails. This route offers breathtaking views and a chance to meet resident moose.


Enjoy a massage for two by candlelight. Relax and unwind with a couple's massage at a local day spa. Therapeutic treatments include hot stone massage, holistic body treatments, and pedicures, manicures, and facials in the most tranquil atmospheres.


Find a foodie's paradise: From exquisite seafood to pasta, international cuisines to wild game, Anchorage fare runs the gamut with sophisticated zest. With close to 100 languages spoken in Anchorage, this cosmopolitan city fuses world cuisines with a frontier twist. Restaurants and markets take full advantage of the abundance of seasonal fresh herbs, monster vegetables, and wild Alaska seafood.
