Cute romantic gestures and hiking…is there a better combination in the great outdoors?

By Oceana Setaysha

Hiking is a wonderful activity to do with someone you love. If you and your partner both love to hike, it can be fun to bring a bit more romance into your hiking adventures, providing some guidelines are followed. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few ideas for some cute romantic gestures you can do to really make your significant other feel loved, even when you’re out on the trail!

 

Plan A Surprise Romantic Getaway

While it’s great to plan and organize a hike, there’s something really nice about not really having to do the planning, but still getting to enjoy the hike. So, one simple but romantic gesture you might want to do for your partner is to plan a surprise getaway that includes a few really nice hikes. You could go just for the day, or a few days, and either visit somewhere that has been a favourite of yours as a couple, or somewhere they’ve never been. You take care of all the details, and just encourage them to pack a bag and come along for an adventure!

 

Bring An Unexpected Snack

If you’re going on a hike with your partner, a short-notice but effective romantic gesture you can do is to bring an unexpected snack with you. Now, there are lots of foods that people consider to be romantic, but here you need to think about portability and preferences. Chocolate dipped strawberries are great, as long as you keep the chocolate separate in a small, sealed container. A pair of small bottles of wine make a great surprise, or champagne to celebrate a relationship milestone. Even a small selection of cheese and crackers can really make them feel loved and appreciated.

 

See The Best Of Nature

There are so many lovely things out there in the world, so many things to see and enjoy. But you can’t argue that it’s nicer to do them with someone by your side. So, if you’re looking for something romantic to do, try and see some of the best natural wonders in your area. Whether they’re a natural landmark, a stunning sunrise, a gorgeous sunset, or a sky full of stars, take your partner out into nature to see the best that’s on offer. Spend an evening stargazing and searching for falling stars and satellites, or pack a thermos of tea and watch the sun rise or set. It’s sure to be a hike to remember.

 

Go On A Geocaching Adventure

Doing something together with your partner is a great way to further cement your bond. So, while you both might enjoy hiking it can be even more fun to hike with a specific goal in mind. If you’ve climbed a few mountains and you’ve completed the hikes in your area, have a go at them again with geocaching in mind. If you’ve never heard of geocaching, it’s basically a treasure hunt you do with GPS. People hide containers, called ‘caches’, and you have to find them. Many people lay the caches out along hiking trails, allowing you to enjoy the hike and collect the caches. For a truly romantic gesture, organize to lay a cache yourself, and name it in honour of your partner! You can also read more about geocaching in our article about it here.

 

Walk A Heart

This is one for the forward thinkers, which might not be easily pulled off but is sure to make a statement. Encourage your partner to install, and then use, a fitness tracker app under the pretense of seeing how far you have walked and how fast. You could also use a GPS. Then take them on a hike that you’ve planned in the shape of a love heart. You’ll need some basic plotting skills for this, but you can easily program the hike into your GPS. For extra points, have the start/end point of the hike at a gorgeous spot where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the wild.

    aww, how sweet is that! Sadly my husband does not enjoy hiking, while I do, so I have the kids in tow – who are thankfully more like me, lol. But that can also be fun. Great post, blessings!

    Some really great suggestions. I especially like the sound of geocaching – a concept unfamilar to me but sounds like a lot of fun to do with your partner!

    I love the idea of “walk a heart”! I asked my husband to download a running app and maybe we can use it as well. I wonder if he will notice the heart shape though, he doesnt pay much attention to GPS. But I will still try this one. Thank you for the idea!
