Top 7 Ideas for Sharing the Love this Valentines Day
As Valentine’s Day approaches, the pressure to plan the perfect romantic outing can sometimes feel overwhelming. Flowers, chocolates, and candlelit dinners are classic choices, but why not step outside the box this year?
From exhilarating hikes to romantic stargazing sessions, here are seven outdoor activities that are sure to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember:
A Sunrise Hike
Start the day on a breathtaking note by embarking on a sunrise hike together. Choose a nearby scenic trail (like the famous Eagle’s Nest close to our Calabogie Cabins– Starling, Finch, or Wren) with a vantage point that offers sweeping views. Witnessing the first light of day together will create a magical and unforgettable experience.
Try a New Experience Together
For the more adventurous souls, why not try your hand at ice climbing, snowmobiling, or wildlife spotting? Embrace the thrill of discovery as you encounter majestic creatures in their natural habitats, from playful wolves (viewed from the safety of the observation room at the Haliburton Forest Wolf Centre) to elusive deer.
Pack a Picnic
What better way to cap off a day of exploration than with a romantic picnic amidst the splendor of the woods? Pack a few of you and your partner’s favourite treats, uncork a bottle of wine, and savour each bite as you soak in the sights and sounds of nature all around you.
We can even have a special moment prepared for your arrival, with our Irresistible Romance Kit to set the romantic mood!
Capture the Moment
The ultimate gift? Memories to look back on. If you’re celebrating a special occasion during your Cabinscape stay (whether that be an anniversary, surprise engagement, or life milestone), our Celebration Photography Package will add that extra touch of magic, with none of the stress.
You’ll receive a full gallery of professional photos amidst a woodland backdrop, and it even comes with wine and treats!
Split a Smore Around the Fire
Cozying up to a crackling fire as you share stories and laughter late into the night is a core-memory waiting to happen. Pretend you’re lady and the tramp with a spaghetti noodle, but swap it for a gooey marshmallow instead!
Stargazing Under the Stars:
Escape the city lights and head to our remote cabins where you can stargaze together under the vast night sky. Bring blankets, cozy up together, and marvel at the beauty of the stars while sharing dreams amidst the peaceful night.
