Summer, undoubtedly, is the perfect season to enjoy some outdoor adventures with your loved one.
Whether you are craving a relaxing getaway in the countryside or searching for an unforgettable adrenaline-pumping experience together, Auckland has a lot to offer to couples looking for spending some quality time together away from the city rush.
Below you will find a small list of some original summer date ideas to surprise your partner.
#Snorkelling at Goat Island
You can escape to Goat Island Marine Reserve to first-hand contemplate the spectacular views under the water, and to swim close to scores of tropical fish (occasionally you may able to see dolphins, whales, and sharks), hire a kayak to navigate near the rocky edges, or you can also go for a more conventional walk and talk session on the beach, while getting lost in the Island’s breath-taking scenery.
#Waiheke Island winery tour
If you prefer to go for a romantic lunch, the Waiheke Islands offers amazing deals for couples. You, and your partner can start your romantic break visiting up to three of the most famous wineries in the area -a local olive oil mill, and two vineyards famous for their Bordeaux, and Chardonnays – to get a taste of New Zealand’s carefully selected finest wines. You can have a memorable gourmet experience with your loved one based on local fish -oysters from Te Matuki Bay-, wild honey, and a small selection of cheese. The perfect way to boost the passion in your relationship!
#Sunset kayak tour
Imagine yourself watching the sun setting over the Waitakere Range with a glass of wine, and holding your partner into your arms. The romantic trip starts with you making your way to the volcanic Rangitoto Island navigating by kayak, later having a lovely couple dinner, and the night ends with you two watching the sunset, and the city lights in the distance. Romance starts here!
