Make the most of the cold weather - wrap up warm and take your loved one out for a long, romantic winter walk.
Spending time in the great outdoors and breathing in all that lovely fresh air is one of the best ways to make yourself feel great, and you’ll burn off a few calories from all that winter comfort food too! While spontaneity is definitely a good thing, sometimes planning a romantic winter walk can mean that you see more, do more, and create even better memories. So here are our tips on planning the perfect winter walk.
Choose somewhere close enough to home that you don’t have to spend hours in the car, either driving or sitting in traffic, as this is a sure-fire way to kill romance. Once you have picked a location, the next thing to do is plan a route that isn’t too strenuous or too long, again, making it stressful will take away the romance and make it less leisurely and more like a school camping trip. If you can pick a route that has fantastic views and a cosy country pub along the way, all the better.
Romantic walks should not be about big backpacks, loads of equipment, and specialist thermals, but to get the best out of it, you’ll want to make sure that you and your partner stay warm and dry and that you have food and drink to enjoy along the way. Our guide to walking equipment will help you to decide what you need and what you can leave to the experts!
So the weather might not seem ideal for a picnic, but if you pack something that you can eat on the move, or pack a waterproof picnic rug in your bag, you’ll discover just how nice it can be to eat out in the open. Take a flask of soup, tea, or coffee, to keep you warm and some luxury items such as champagne and chocolates.
While there’s almost nothing more unpredictable than the British weather, give yourself the best chance of avoiding torrential rain, freezing temperatures, or heavy snow by checking the five day weather forecast for the date you plan to walk on.
It is important to let someone know where you plan to walk, and how long you expect it to take so that they can offer assistance should the weather turn unexpectedly or you get lost.
