Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! Do you have a plan yet? Staying active over holidays can be a real challenge. Here are 12 fun, active and romantic activities you can include in your Valentine’s Day plans.
Valentine’s Day Activities For Active Couples
If one or both of you have been climbing before and know how to belay, then rock climbing is the perfect trust-building activity. You get to support and help each other, physically and mentally. Bouldering is another great activity to do as a couple. You get to work as a team to figure out different problems, and it can be very satisfying making it to the top!
Going for a hike together gives you the chance to talk and reconnect whilst working to achieve a common goal of completing the hike. You should have plenty of photo opportunities to remember the day, and you could even take a picnic!
Holding hands together whilst gliding round the rink can be a romantic way to spend time together!
It could be any kind of dancing. You could do ballroom dancing, salsa dancing or hip-hop dancing. Do some research and find out what is on offer near you. Any kind of dancing is a great way to feel good and connect with each other.
There are plenty of trampoline parks around these days. They can be a great fun, if slightly goofy, couples activity. You can bounce around together, play trampoline dodgeball (same team or against each other!) or practice some crazy flips into a foam pit. Why not?
You can play as a team against another couple or you could simply work on building up long rallies. Either way, tennis can be a lot of fun to play together.
If you have never played before, why not go to a driving range together, take a series of lessons to learn together or try mini golf (see below)? If you are both comfortable on a golf course, a round of golf could be a great day out together. Some beautiful scenery and plenty of fresh air and walking … just save your competitive side for another day.
Maybe not the most active thing on this list but still great fun. Mini golf is meant to be goofy and fun, so let the trash talk commence! It’s up to you and your partner to decide how many rules you break.
You still might be able to catch the tail end of the snow season. A mini ski vacation as a couple can be a super-romantic, super-active way to spend Valentine’s Day with your partner.
Paddle boarding together on some clear, calm water is so much fun together.
If you are on that ski vacation, or maybe just have a decent slope with some snow on it, a perfect active Valentine’s Day activity could be tubing or sledding together down that slope.
Walk/Run on the Beach
If you can get to the beach, you can’t beat it! Sand in your toes, soothing ocean sounds and a gentle sea breeze. A perfectly romantic, active addition to your Valentine’s Day. If you want to be a bit more energetic, why not go for a beach run?
Treat your partner to a fun and energetic activity this Valentine’s Day with one of these fun ideas. Not all of them will be an option as some of them require access to snow, beach, water or are weather dependent, but some are year-round activities that don’t have many special requirements.
