Where to go for a romantic weekend

Who doesn't dream of seeing the Northern Lights? If you can do it warm, directly from the double bed and embrace yourself under a warm duvet, even better. The destination is Ivalo, which can be reached by plane from Helsinki. Better to rely on a tour operator so as not to leave out any details. Norama offers glass-domed cottages and private saunas, while Blueberry Travel offers trips to lakes and wildlife parks. Among the romantic activities to try are snowmobile safaris, husky safaris and a visit to the reindeer farm.
lago di Bled, Slovenia
Already in summer it is suggestive. But in winter, Lake Bled, in Slovenia, less than an hour from Trieste, reaches the apex of its magic. If the cold is not a problem and the sky is blue, you can rent a boat. Or drink a hot chocolate and enjoy a dessert in one of the many places overlooking the lake. Lunch is inside the Castle, including gourmet dishes and a view to be immortalized. Numerous romantic hotels surround the area. (credits: I Feel Slovenia)
Qc Terme Dolomiti
Latest addition to the Qc Terme family. A paradise in the Dolomites, more precisely in Pozza di Fassa, which opened its doors at the end of December 2016. The project - the thermal water comes from the Alloch spring - is oriented towards environmental sustainability: an added value when between Turkish baths, saunas, swimming pools, whirlpools and personalized treatments you will feel the strong contact with nature. At the end of the day, take off your bathrobe and enjoy a candlelit dinner in the Qc restaurant.
Enough Paris, have we already said that? Let's move to Bordeaux, the realm of good (homonymous) wine and home of Gray Goose. The town, with its narrow streets, bridges and suggestive lights, is to be discovered hand in hand. If you want to surprise, dinner is at Le pressoir d’Argent, one Michelin star. But there are numerous bistros scattered around the city. Or you can always indulge yourself in the pleasures of a do-it-yourself: buy a good red, a baguette, cheeses and a couple of jams or honeys. Consume everything in the room, romantically, on the bed. (credits: Visit Bordeaux)
The colorful houses and the Norwegian sea will amaze you. Strolling by the hand through Bergen, a reverent town in the south of the country, will make you relax in the blink of an eye. The sunset is a sight not to be missed, as is the Amber Spa, which offers personalized treatments for couples. A massage and a little hydromassage is what you need after a day out for a walk. In the evening, leaving one of the restaurants on the shore, the reflections of the lights of the houses are all to be photographed. (credits: Visit Bergen)
Bocche di Cattaro (da Instagram)
The Bocche di Cattaro - this is their name in Italian - are inlets that have all the appearance of a fjord. Bring a pair of comfortable shoes and arm yourself with Reflex. Here the views leave you breathless and you can immortalize romantic moments in one of the most fascinating rocky bays. The Forza Mare Hotel is wonderful in the summer, but also offers great emotions in winter, including evocative views, reflections in the water, a flawless wellness center and a gourmet restaurant.

borgo egnazia
Who said that you only go to Puglia in the summer? If for you outdoor activities and relaxation mean romance, the heel of Italy can only be crackling between glasses of Primitivo and sweet gourmet breaks to share while visiting some of the most beautiful villages in Italy. And then, let's face it, the sea always has an incredible charm, whatever the season. Borgo Egnazia is a huge accommodation facility that offers every kind of comfort, from food to wellness, to sports and excursions.
Six Senses Laamu Maldive
Sure, it takes a few more days than a weekend. But if you succeed, the right address is the Six Senses Laamu for a spiritual and physical remise en forme with your other half. The structure will then propose numerous activities on the beach or in the water to experience the Maldives from a less touristy point of view than usual.
Hallstatt (da Instagram)
Not too far from Salzburg, Hallstatt is one of those postcard places. A small town - Unesco World Heritage Site - where you can spend your days in small restaurants overlooking the lake and very romantic hotels. For a stay in a hotel, pampered, the choice can fall on the Heritage Hotel. But if you prefer more intimate and intimate environments, there are the cabins of W&S Executive Apartments or those of Hallstatt Hideaway, complete with a sauna, outdoor whirlpool and panoramic terrace.

Romantik Hotel Vipiteno
The Romantik Hotel Stafler is certainly among the most famous hotels in the region. What makes this destination unconventional are its proposals, including the one for Valentine's Day 2017: those who get engaged in February and choose to stay at the property can enjoy a free upgrade in one of the hotel suites. Also romantic are the packages that allow you to find chocolates, sparkling wine, red roses and perfumed oil for massages in your room. Dinner is with two Michelin star chef Peter Girtler.
Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
Between sand dunes and rocky mountains, this property offers total immersion in the "spirit of the couple": moments of pleasant well-being and pampering will alternate with daily yoga sessions and personalized treatments. At sunset we move to the beach, where with a glass of wine in hand we can observe tortoises, dolphins and whales. Also in this case, the advice is to rely on an agency so as not to leave out any details.
Trakai, ToNy resort
The place you wouldn't expect. It is a series of islets in the county of Vilnius - the capital of the Baltic country -, between water and greenery. The Trakai woods are all to be discovered by walking, but you can also rent a boat. The ToNy Resort offers not just rooms, but large and ultra-modern glass bungalows with lake views. Totally immersed in the woods. And no one from outside will be able to see you.
