Hey, yeah! Here we are already in February when Christmas has just passed, which means Valentine's Day is coming in a few days, ready or not! The loved one expects at least to receive a box of heart-shaped chocolates or flowers from the local pharmacy. Yet it's easy to be original and offer more on Valentine's Day!
To inspire you, Outgo Experiences offers 8 romantic activities to do with his or her sweet half for Valentine's Day.
1. One night 100% nature in Yurts
A night at the hotel is always a must for Valentine's Day. It's romantic, elegant and refreshing!
This year, on the other hand, we suggest you go off the beaten track and dare to originality! Who has ever had the chance to sleep in an open-air dome or yurt in the beautiful Lac Poulin valley?
Go out in nature and live this unique experience at the Centre de l'Beech, a stone's throw from Quebec City. Snowshoe trails and cross-country skiing await you during the day and in the evening gaze at the stars and nature, glued to each other, glass of wine in your hand and warm in your rejuvenating half-sphere.
No noisy and unpleasant hotel room neighbors in sight!
2. A gourmet evening at home
If you are one of those people who have a very hectic life and often have to eat outside, then it's simple. Romantic dinner for two at the best table in the neighborhood: home. Cooking at home for or with your partner is a simple activity, but that allows the couple to spend a quality time together. One or two good bottles of wine, light the candles and leave the music, a successful evening!
P.s. We don't forget to have children in grandparents' homes.
3. Nature ride in unique skates
The Lake Memphremagog Ice Trail is a free and fun activity. Dress up warmly and take out your skates! It is 2.8 km of ice around one of the most beautiful lakes in the Eastern Townships. A chalet awaits you at the beginning and at the end of the trail to unfreeze your nose.
Afterwards, hand in hand, browse the shops on the main street of the charming village of Magog and feast at one of the excellent restaurants around this Valentine's Day.
4. A day in the shoes of a queen
If you want to impress your princess, invite her to the tea service at the prestigious Le Ritz-Carlton hotel in Montreal for Valentine's Day. A distinguished afternoon awaits you at the Cours des Palmiers. English tea service, canapés, scones and elaborate pastries will charm Madame. Her friends will be jealous!
5. Wild Safari in Montebello
For animal lovers, we go to Montebello, in the Outaouais, visit Omega Park. A 1h30 drive tour where wildlife walks freely around you. You'll come across huge bison, elk, cute arctic foxes, etc. For the more adventurous, extend the fun by spending the full night with a pack of grey wolves for Valentine's Day. This is a unique privilege that your darling will not forget so soon!
6. A relaxing Valentine's Day
A relaxing day is one of the gifts you never make a mistake on Valentine's Day! Often it's hard to stop and take care of yourself, so if your spouse doesn't, book them a moment to relax at Noah Spa. Hot, cold pools, saunas and steam baths, you have everything you need to allow the body to rest.
In addition, it is a Quebec company that stands out thanks to its unique energy routes. On Outgo you will find a special offer for all three Noah Spa establishments.
And then, we agree that it is a gift for each other as well as for oneself!
7. Escape from the routine this Valentine's Day
You know what's in fashion these days? Escape games!
Go with your lover on an adventure. The goal is to get you out of a room by solving puzzles, puzzles, codes, etc. and all in a limited time. You can even invite couples of friends to help you and spend Valentine's Day with friends. There are more and more places to participate in this kind of evening in Quebec.
Watch out for competitive spirits, it's easy to finally spend the night on the couch!
8. Give him a jewel box from the Watchmaker
If you're thinking about giving her a gift and your thought is easily leaning on a piece of jewellery, wait! It's not a bad idea, but here's an even better one! Do you know the Quebec company L'Horloger? The concept is wonderful for jewelry lovers. A monthly box is sent to you home with small treasures inside. We are talking about jewels made here by Quebec designer . You will receive a description of the craftsman and his work in each box. So why give her a bracelet on Valentine's Day when you can send her several times a month thanks to a box from L'Horloger.
