Chalking up some unique experiences as a couple can make you closer to your partner, it also gives you special shared moments to talk about and awesome stories to tell the future grandkids! So, what are the sort of shared experiences, that you haven’t done before, that you should totally try now?
Here are 5 YOLO couple travel must dos!
Tandem Couples Bungee Jump
It’s a little pleasure mixed with a little terror. Ok… a lot of terror! But bungee jumping has always been one of the most exhilarating experiences anyone can have.
Check out Kawarau Bungy Centre in Queenstown. It is nestled into the rock face above the magnificent Kawarau Gorge. If you want to be tied up & thrown off a bridge with your partner, then this is the perfect site for you. Just remember that sharing the thrill doesn’t mean halving the fear!
View the Northern Lights
It will cost you, and there’s no actual guarantee you will get to see the aurora borealis… but if you plan well and get a good guide from a reputable company, you will experience this entrancing magical show of nature with your partner.
One of the best places to view the Northern Lights is in Norway. Between late September and late March, it is dark between 6 pm and 1 am. This is your best chance of spotting the lights.
Horse and Carriage Ride
For a huge dose of romance, head to Paris and have a horse and carriage ride. It’ll be one of the most romantic things you’ll ever do as a couple. Plus you can sit back, relax and snuggle up to your loved one and take in all of Paris famous landmarks; the Champs Elysees, Trocadero and Arc de Triomphe.
The carriage departs from the Eiffel Tower, the tours are an hour in total and leave daily at 1 pm, 4 pm, 5 pm and 6 pm. In the spirit of YOLO, upgrade to the 1.5-hour long ride and a bottle of champagne!
Hot Air Balloon Safari
There are many ways to go on a safari in the Serengeti, but a hot air balloon ride has to be the most YOLO of them all. You get a bird’s eye view of the Serengeti, a chance to take amazing pictures and share this breathtaking experience with your partner.
Be prepared for an early start (around 4 am), but you will be rewarded with an incredible sunrise and spectacular game viewing, along with a champagne breakfast.
Go on a Couple’s Road Trip
Finally, here’s a YOLO couples’ travel activity that won’t break the bank. Take a road trip with your partner. The destination is totally up to you. You can sit down a plan a scenic route together or just fly by the seat of your pants.
All you need is a car, money for petrol, some change of clothes and good music queued up. Everything else you can get along the way! YOLO!
