Alpine lakes. Wildflower meadows. Hidden remote towns. Rugged mountains. Snow-capped glaciers. North Cascades National Park is one of our favorite pieces of paradise, and it’s such a romantic and isolated spot for your elopement! Why? North Cascades National Park has so much to offer for couples looking for the perfect spot to say “I Do!”
This national park in the Pacific Northwest stretches from the U.S.-Canada border all the way to Lake Chelan, and the park is known for its awesome biodiversity. The North Cascades are so much more than just a stretch of mountains! To the west of the North Cascades, you’ll find a more wet environment with dramatic peaks and old growth forests. To the east, you’ll find a drier and more arid climate. Fun fact: this national park is even home to the most expansive glacial system in the contiguous United States.
So why should you elope in the North Cascades? Well, there are almost 400 miles of trails throughout the park with endless views and stunning scenery. Plus, the park has more than 300 (yes, 300!) glaciers! And more than 500 lakes! Also, several spots in the park are dog friendly. We could go on, and on, and on…
The biggest perk? North Cascades National Park remains one of the least – yes, least – visited parks in the U.S. That means there will be plenty of spots around the park to take in some solo time, say your vows, and pop open a bottle of champagne to celebrate your vows.
