If you and your partner are the adventurous types, there are a couple of great romantic getaway ideas that could keep the fire and spark going, giving you a shot at a fulfilling long-term commitment. Being an adventurous couple doesn’t have to mean expensive trips around the world, and some of the activities on our list will be simple to explore no matter what region you live in.
Going on a Camping Trip
Camping can be a great outdoor activity for any couple, not only as it provides you with a chance to switch off from technology and connect on a deeper level, but because it gives you access to the “great outdoors” in the form of sleeping under the stars. A lot of couples go on camping trips to find adventure and to finish mini hikes in the region. Google your nearest campsite, and you’re good to go.
Explore The Open Sea
If water is more of your thing, sailing is another great romantic getaway idea. While renting a sailboat can be somewhat pricey, you don’t have to plan on doing so for longer than a night or two. Set sail on the nearest river or lagoon or get a bit more adventurous and train together to tackle the open sea as a team. Once you’re on the open sea, having a romantic meal together with a glass of champagne can be a great way to get some bonding time in, especially as you disconnect from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.
Picnic & Fishing
There’s no shame in preferring to stick to land, and you can still have an adventurous time by wandering into a secluded forest area for a couples picnic, followed by some fishing at the nearest pond. Any couple seeking an exciting time will find all kinds of mysteries in these types of locations, learning more about the land and themselves in the process. Nature has always a way of bringing out the best in us.
Get Active and Reach New Heights
We’re talking about literally reaching new heights, in the form of rock climbing! Whether you do so on an actual mountain top, or you choose to go the indoor route, rock climbing is a great way to move your body and train your muscles, while taking part in an activity that can help build trust between you and your partner too. Never has “I love you” meant as much as it does when your other half is grounding your weight to the earth while you dangle mid-air.
Last but not least, consider a kayaking adventure for the two of you. This type of water activity does not require a lot of training, and typically takes place on calm waters. Coordination will make a big difference here, so your communication skills are sure to be put to the test. Don’t be shy to alternate the responsibility of steering the kayak, and brace yourselves for a lot of laughs, and hopefully very little tipping over and falling into the water. Enjoy the experience!
