Top 5 adventurous outdoor date ideas.

24 August Ayesha Farhad 14 Comments

I love going on dates with my husband. It has been a really long time since we have gone on a date particularly because my husband does not believe in the whole baby sitter idea and we don't have any immediate family that lives around us so that baby sitting becomes easier. So the only time we ACTUALLY go out on a date is when we go come to Pakistan to meet our parents or when some one comes to visit us in London.

That being said, I LOVE outdoor dates. I just don't like being in confined spaces and end up eating all the while. The only time you actually get to know a person properly is when they are at ease.

1. Outdoor Luna Cinema.

This has to be my favourite! There is nothing more romantic than floating in a small blow up boat and watching a movie! Everything just screams cosy! And hey, if your date is turning out to be really cringy, then whats better than a push to a splash? ;)

2. Canoe Picnic.

Can you tell that I love water sports and everything water related? A cosy picnic in a small boat with hot coffee topped with s'mores and comfort food = sandwiches makes the best romantic date ever. I think I will have to pester my husband to agree on this one. He is SCAREEEEDD of water which sometimes is hilarious!

3. Road tripping in a pickup truck.

I have been told that if you really really want to get to know a person's nature, go travel with them. So if you are at ease with your date or have been dating for quite a while, this idea is fab to take things up a notch. Decide a destination together and take a road trip! You don't even have to pay for a hotel! Just park somewhere safe and get cosy in the back of the truck.
Likewise, if you don't want to go on a road trip, you can just go out camping for a night or maybe watch an outdoor movie in the back of your truck.

4. Mountain Camping. 

This is not for the weak hearted! If you are at a comfortable stage in your relationship, you can decide to go mountain climbing! And if you are feeling adventurous enough, there are hanging cliff pods available where you can spend the night to refuel for the next trek.

5. Beach date/Bonfire.

I have been on numerous beach dates and no fancy restaurant date can compare to a beach date. The absolute pleasure that you get from just sitting next to the fire, snuggling and singing random songs just tugs a nerve. There is something in the beach air that makes it extra romantic and you'd rather be there than any place else.

If you are in the UK and you're having a hard time finding a date, why don't you check out these websites?  If you are over 50, you might also find a match that is local to you as well: Over 50s Edinburgh, Over 50's dating Oxfordshire, Wiltshire dating site, Cheshire Dating Site, Adult dating, Edinburgh dating & Merseyside Dating site. You might find that perfect adventurous someone who would love to share these dates with you!

  1. These are all great outdoor date ideas! I live in Texas and doing some of these during the summer heat is near impossible. But I do like how unique and different these ideas are!

  2. These all look like great date night ideas! We have outdoor movie theaters but not a floating one! I would love to do that. I also love the idea of mountain camping but it may not go so well since both my husband and I have a slight fear of heights :)

  3. I grew up on the coast and also love beach dates. I also love camping in a pick-up and canoeing. However, the thought of watching an outdoor moving on the water inspires me for sure.

  6. I love the Luna Cinema! It reminds me of going to the drive in movies when I was in high school. There's nothing better than sitting out underneath the stars and watching a movie on the big screen with people that you love. I imagine it would be just as fun floating in the water! x

  7. These are great date ideas! Although some can't apply to my boyfriend and I because of where we live, we can definitely do the road tripping in my pick up truck.

  10. I have actually been to Peru, in the valley where those pods are installed on the side of the mountains. The climb up is quite scary but I bet the view from the pod is amazing!

  13. So many great ideas! The floating cinema has to be my favorite. I think I'm gonna look up if there are any available in my area. As cool as the mountain camping looks in pictures I don't think I could ever do it! I command those who do. Notes have been taken. Thank you for these creative date ideas
