5 Dates for Active Couples

Finding something fun to do with your partner can sometimes be a challenge. Maybe you’ve entered a predictable routine of dates with your significant other and are looking for a bit of diversity, or maybe you just want another way to fit some exercise into your life. Whether or not these apply to you, getting out and about on an adventure is an incredible experience to share with a loved one.  If you’re looking to branch out your dates, and get a little exercise at the same time, try one of these fun active activities! 


Planning a hike is a great way to enjoy a nice day in nature packed with exercise and conversation. Make the most of the one-on-one time with your partner, and take in the sights! Don’t live near any great hiking trails? Not a problem! Just going for a casual walk is a perfect way to get out of the house. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around your neighborhood or local park. 

Feeling a little more adventurous? Try backpacking instead! Pack your camping gear, gather all the essentials, and set out on an incredible journey through nature. Whether you hike for one day or several, nothing is more romantic than camping under the stars. 


Just like hiking, you don’t need to be near any national parks or exceptional biking trails to enjoy going for a spin with your SO. Take them on an aimless and laid-back ride in the neighborhood, or plan a destination! Maybe embark on a short jaunt to a nearby lunch spot, or plan a picnic. No matter what you do, biking is a great way to get outdoors. 

Rock Climbing

Hit the local climbing gym! Rock climbing gives you and your partner a mutual objective to complete. You may want to collaborate and work together to get to the top, or you may spark a friendly competition. Rock climbing is also relatively inexpensive for a date, so it’s a great way to break a sweat without breaking the bank. 

Water Sports

A day trip to the lake is an absolute blast. Call up a friend with a boat (or Jet Ski), or find a trusty rental, and enjoy some time on the water! Hold on tight as you bounce along the waves while tubing, or ride some waves on a wakeboard or water skis. This date is a perfect way to cool off in the summer months and is guaranteed to make you and your SO sore the next day. 

ATV Tour

Our final date idea offers the natural beauty of either the Phoenix Tucson Box Canyon or the West Sedona Valley--all from the back of an ATV. Both tours are led by some of the most experienced adventurers, who will keep you on track and fully informed about the Arizona environment. Regardless of your ATV experience, our unforgettable off-road experience is welcome to everyone. With both tours running about 3 hours long, this makes for the perfect extended date out for active couples. 

Spend some quality time outdoors with your partner, and don’t forget to consider Arizona ATV Adventures for your next active date! If you’d like to book a tour with us, or you have additional questions, contact us at (800)-242-6335.
