Are you looking for that ideal vacation that you can do as a couple?
Is the idea of laying on a beach for a week with nothing to do other than look at the sand and surf not exactly appealing to you?
Perhaps you’re more of the adventurous type – not satisfied to sit still for long. If that’s the case, then there’s no doubt you’re on the lookout for travel activities that are perfect to do as a couple.
Before you go ahead with any vacation planning and details, here are some of the best travel activities that are great for couples such as yourselves.
Kayaking is one of those activities that is incredibly versatile and can be done in a number of different areas. It can also be incredibly relaxing as you kayak past stunning natural scenery, catch a glimpse of the wildlife, and not be confronted with the sounds of city life.
So why not try out tandem kayaking, which involves two people in the same kayak working in sync with one another?
You’ll find everything from inflatable kayaks that are perfect for beginners just looking to have some fun, to more durable high-quality kayaks that can be seen as an investment that you can use for many years to come.
For those wondering about the health and fitness benefits of kayaking, this activity is great for improving your flexibility and strength and is classified as an aerobic activity.
Explore by Bike
If you don’t like the idea of a large tour bus to explore various cities, towns, and villages, then you may want to look into biking adventures. This is a great way to enjoy time – just the two of you – while taking in the fabulous scenery.
You can make your own itinerary, deciding on what places you want to stop in, and where you want to browse the shops, dine, and explore. You can also set your own pace either going slow and easy or making more of a workout out of the adventure.
Just be sure to do a little research on whether or not you need to bring your own bike, or if there may be local tour operators that can provide rentals.
Create Your Own Museum Tour
For those who are visiting a big busy city, why not put together your own museum tour itinerary? Many of the biggest cities across the country, and the world for that matter, have a handful of museums rather than just one.

You can pick and choose which interests you the most, and then get your steps in exploring all the museums have to offer.
Again, this is the kind of activity where advanced research and planning is wise. You can look into what museums there are, the operating hours, what the peak times of the day are so you can avoid them, and even purchase tickets in advance.
Snorkeling and Diving Opens Up All New Doors
Perhaps your destination takes you somewhere warm and surrounded by water, which means you’ve got all new activities to choose from. While the focus may be on land activities and adventures, don’t forget to also explore what’s under the water.
Snorkeling and scuba diving are fabulous activities for couples to do together and share something truly spectacular and memorable.
Life under the water tends to be serene and beautiful, and you’ll get a chance to see things you may have never known existed.
Making Memories Together
No matter which of these activities you end up choosing, one thing they share is that you will be able to make fabulous memories together.Lastly, I'm starting to tell other women about a health newsletter that I've benefited immensely from and that I highly recommend.
