Explore Lake Powell with your favorite adventure partner.
No matter how long you’ve been in a relationship with your significant other, the past 12 months have been stressful. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for a romantic getaway where you can focus solely on your relationship, having some fun, and spending time together with no worries.
What better back-drop for this relaxing, romantic getaway than Lake Powell. Not only is Lake Powell the second-largest man-made lake in the U.S., but it’s also surrounded by iconic sandstone landscapes and plenty of nooks and crannies that are just begging to be explored by kayak or on a hike. The crystal clear waters, bounteous landscape, and social distancing protocols will set just the right tone for your safe, romantic getaway.
Couple’s Activities at Lake Powell
No matter what type of adventure you’re looking for with your romantic partner, there’s just the right activity at Lake Powell.
Boat Around the Lake
What is more romantic than a cruise around Lake Powell (even if you’re furry friend is the third wheel)?
It doesn’t get any more intimate than casting off and setting sail upon the clear waters of Lake Powell in your private houseboat. You can spend your entire vacation on the water, simply basking in the natural wonders. Set your schedule or be inspired by these houseboat itineraries.
If you’re more interested in getting your blood pumping, you can spend the day jetting around Lake Powell on a rented powerboat, pontoon or jet ski.
Want to explore the lake and get a workout in?
Imagine a romantic day paddling down the shallow by-ways surrounded by soaring sandstone cliffs on either side and when you reach the end of your kayaking trip, there is a small, private beach where you can bask in the sun. If you’re looking for a slow-paced day in nature, consider renting a kayak or stand up paddleboard to enjoy time on the water at a slower pace.
Pack a Picnic and Dine Al Fresco
While most visitors focus on the water at Lake Powell, they’re missing out on a lot. Both North and South Lake Powell are home to some spectacular hiking, which will take you along trails filled with some of the best sights in the American Southwest.
Most trails are accessible from land while some are accessible from the water. Make a day out of your hike by packing lunch and dining al fresco when you get to one of those picturesque spots that make you feel like you’re on a postcard.
Get Cozy Under the Stars
Cap off the perfect day with an evening under the stars.
While you might be tempted to spend your evening inside cozied up together, you won’t want to miss the spectacular stars. Wrap up in some warm clothing and dash outside to take in one of nature’s most amazing views: the milky way. If you’re staying on a houseboat, mosey on up to the top deck for an understairs cuddle on a lounge chair – a glass of wine is optional!

With just a short lesson, you can cast off and explore the more than 2000 miles of shoreline surrounding Lake Powell.
