Guest Post: 10 Outdoor Adventures You Should Do With Your Date

There can be nothing more romantic and intimate than to get away from technology and to escape into nature with your partner. It definitely beats dinner and a movie and it is a lot of fun. If you are going on a first date, it is also a great way for the two of you to get to know each other. Here are 10 outdoor adventures you should do with your date.

1. Hiking

Find some local hiking trails in the area. Perhaps they have a gorgeous view at the top of a mountain, or they are near a rushing river. Or they are just a nice walk in the woods. It is a good chance for the two of you to enjoy each other's company or get to know each other if it is a first date. At the end of the hike you will feel relaxed and energized and closer than ever.

Who is this for? For couples who love the woods.

2. Camping

If you need to get away for some definite alone time, then camping is the way to go. You can enjoy an intimate night in the woods and without technology to get in the way the two of you can just enjoy each other. It is a great time for cuddling and talking and getting intimate. If roughing it does not appeal to you then you can always rent a yurt or a luxury tent so you can still enjoy the seclusion of the woods without feeling uncomfortable.

Who is this for? Couples who want to be alone together for a night.

Bring a thermos of tea or hot chocolate with your telescope and set up on a clear night when you can see the stars. The two of you will have a lot of fun looking at stars, constellations and planets. And if it is a little chilly, it's a good time to get some cuddling in.

4. Snowshoeing

If you like the snow and the cold, then snowshoeing will be a lot of fun for the both of you. You can snowshoe on plenty of walking trails and you will have a lot of fun tripping over your snowshoes and laughing at each other. It is especially a treat if you have never snowshoed before, or at least not since middle school gym class.

Who is this for? For couples who love snow and winter.

5. Swimming

Find a lake, pond, or beach somewhere and go swimming. A lot of the time you can find one that has no entry fee or parking fee and you can enjoy being in the middle of nature while swimming and exploring the underwater world before you.

Who is this for? Couples who love water.

Who is this for? Couples who love being outside and not in a restaurant.
