Stockholm’s beautiful greenery and scenery makes it a perfect spot for adventurous and breathtaking dates. The city is home to countless outdoor activities, which means you and your special someone never have to settle for ordinary! Here are three fun ways to romantically enjoy all that Stockholm offers:
Björnö Nature Reserve:
Only 45 minutes away from the city center, Björnö Nature Reserve is one of the best options for a full-day outdoor date. It’s a small peninsula where you and your date can go on a leisurely walk, hike the various trails, and explore the shoreline with a kayak or canoe. It is also home to Torpesand, one of Stockholm’s nicest beaches, known for its incredible water and sand, and the cliff bathing site on the eastern side of the beach. For animal lovers, sea eagles, ospreys, sheep, horses and highland cattle can all be seen at the reserve as well.
Rålambshovsparken is not an ordinary park. Located on Kungsholmen, here you can take a stroll, play sports such as beach volleyball and soccer, enjoy the views of City Hall and Lake Mälaren, swim and tan, work out in the open air gym, have a picnic, check out events and performances at the active Parkteatern outdoor theater, and end the day with a delicious meal at one of the park’s restaurants or cafes. At Rålambshovsparken, you can have 10 dates in one, and your sweetheart is bound to be impressed!
The Primeval Forest Trail
Located in Tyresta National Park and Nature Reserve, which is just 20 kilometers from the center of the city and spans almost 5,000 hectares, the Primeval Forest Trail is one of the most beautiful ways to spend a date in Stockholm. The 2.5 kilometer route takes you along the ancient forest, the impressive plant and animal species, the lakes and shoreline cliffs, and much more. Surprise your special someone by organizing a romantic hiking date at this beautiful park and reserve, and make sure to pack water and a delicious meal for a wonderful picnic in nature.
Stockholm is a city that makes it easy to plan adventurous, fun, and exciting dates in the beautiful outdoors. Take advantage of the city’s exceptional nature reserves, multi-purpose parks, and trails and do something extraordinary with your date, making it a day to never forget!
