Going on a holiday with your partner is one of the best ways to spend some quality time together. Instead of heading to an urban destination, idyllic locations such as the Isle of Eriska can provide a unique holiday experience for couples in need of some rest and relaxation. Moreover, staying at a hotel that provides opportunities for leisure activities can keep you and your partner energised and healthy. Not only will participating in leisure activities make your bond stronger, but you also keep fit while you’re on vacation. According to research of more than 3,000 couples, people who exercised with their partner were more likely to succeed if their significant other made the same efforts, compared to couples who didn't workout together.
Benefits of doing leisure activities with your partner
Apart from meeting fitness goals, couples who workout or do leisure activities together have more fun. Most couples also believe that socialising, eating, taking the time to do something new, and exercising as a couple can strengthen a relationship. In a poll involving thousands of couples across the UK, two-thirds believe that making time to have fun and spend quality time together results in a healthier and happier relationship.
If you’re staying at a place that offers leisure activities such as the Isle of Eriska Hotel, you and your partner should try doing one or two each day during the length of your stay. Not only will the new experiences bring you closer, but you’ll also get to discover fun things that you can do together for years to come. Here are the best leisure activities to do with your partner while you’re on holiday.
Play a round of golf
Playing a round of golf with your partner lets you burn the calories while perfecting your swing. A study has shown that you can burn up to 1,500 calories while playing a round of golf. You also get to enjoy the outdoors with your significant other while playing this sport. If you don’t have the necessary equipment, don’t worry - you can always hire golf clubs and trolleys from the hotel.
Go mountain biking
Take your partner on a mountain biking date over the weekend. If you’ve never done it before, you can hire mountain bikes for you and your partner and make sure that both of you have the right gear and clothing to suit the weather condition. There’s nothing like exploring the wooded grounds and trails of Eriska on a mountain bike, and you can burn as much as 1,374 calories if you cycle at 25 miles per hour.
Kayaking is a low impact activity that can improve your strength and flexibility. It can also help to build muscle, give you a stronger core, and burn calories all at the same time. Choose a double kayak so you and your partner can learn to work together while having fun on the water.
A casual game of croquet is a nice way to spend the afternoon with your significant other, and the good thing about it is that you don’t need brute strength to play it; whether you’re 15 or 90, if you can hit a ball with a mallet, then you can play it. Croquet is also a good activity for a small group, so you and your partner can invite other couples to join in.
If you’re feeling peckish after doing your chosen leisure activity for the day in Eriska, invite your partner to have a nice afternoon tea at the hotel. It’s the perfect way to end an exhilarating day with the special person in your life.
