Lakeland is such a pretty and quiet place, ideal for nature-seekers and outdoors lovers.

It is so quiet here that sometimes you can do a whole route in a park and you won’t cross with anybody.

6. Marrakech, Morocco
Marrakech might not be the first place that comes to your head when thinking on a trip with your partner. But the truth is, traveling in Morocco is already an adventure itself and can be a very romantic holiday destination.
The different culture, the amazing food, the sense of family they have, etc. It will make you feel curious from the very moment you step in.

10. The Algarve, Portugal
The Algarve is now becoming a well-known destination, but it was not like that not long ago.
The truth is, that is hard to keep such a hidden gem a secret. If laying down in great unspoiled beaches is your holiday idea, this is a top destination.
Is better to explore The Algarve during the summer months since the options are greater. The beaches are stunning and not nearly as crowded as other places on high season, although that is changing quickly.
There are many little beautiful villages around to explore and the seafood here is not only amazing but cheaper than in most places. Water sports are one of the best things to do in The Algarve
Our personal recommendation is to visit and explore Lagos and Sagres, which are stunning.

11. Menorca, Spain
Is amazing how Menorca goes unnoticed because of Majorca. Yes, Majorca is also great, but way more touristic and expensive as well.
Instead, Menorca offers even better beaches in dreamy locations in the Balearic islands. If the budget allows it, renting a boat for a day with a skipper is such an amazing thing to do. Alternatively, there are much cheaper options like exploring beaches around by yourselves, jeep safaris or a bit of snorkeling and paddle board.
But if you do rent a boat for a day, you will live one of the most amazing experiences in your life!

Norway offer many great holiday destinations for couples looking for adventures.
It might not be the cheapest destination from the list, but we can assure you that an average hotel and a car is not much expensive compared to any other place.
Is especially good for trekkings and for the Fjords. There is also stunning cruises and the fascinating train to Flam, which is such a magical experience.
The best thing to do is to fly to Bergen, rent a car and book a cool Airbnb somewhere by a Fjord
