Whether you’re in the snowy Alps, or in chilly London, nothing is more romantic than packing a picnic and going for a hike into the wilderness with the love of your life for an al fresco treat. Top tip – Take lots of blankets… and wine.
8. Brave the cold together
For a once in a lifetime memorable experience, try ice diving in Tignes-Val s’Isère. You can plunge into the icy cold waters of the lake and experience the thrill of diving under the icy layers above. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced diver you can have a go at ice diving. Adventure companies offering this activity will provide you with all the equipment and instruction you need and will take you on this underwater adventure.
9. Get a couple of tickets to a mountaintop music festival
Why not treat your other half to an exciting festival this year? Rock the Pistes Festival (17th to 22nd March 2019) in Morzine combines snow and music, where artists perform in scarves and woolly hats and spectators dance in ski boots. Gigs are performed at the top of the Portes du Soleil slopes on festival stages that are erected overnight, as the venues change resort each day between France and Switzerland.
