If you're about to celebrate Valentine's Day, ask yourself - what could be better than a material present? The answer is - an event! Romantic or adventurous - you decide.

Of course if you have any ideas to spend this day in your area I couldn't be an adviser, but for those who wouldn't mind for a trip here are my suggestions for Valentine's:

1. Paris, the city of romance

Classic and not original answer - you say, it is! But you won't beat classic, thus better deal with it :) Paris is really captivating when it comes to romantic things. This city lures couples simply by its atmosphere.

All works here to create the right mood - French language from around, which by itself sounds romantically for a non-local ear. Old town streets and squares with one time impressive but cozy architecture. Bridges over Seine and those Croissants with a cup of coffee for a breakfast under a table outside a cafe somewhere with an Eiffel Tower view. Paris has everything to make your day special.

Catch a Tip: save your time and don't go on the Tower, better sit near it - believe me hours of waiting and quees don't worth a view from which you can't see the Eiffil Tower itself :)

best for: walks, romantic dinners, stylish souvenirs

2. Belmond British Pullman Train across United Kingdom

For those who enjoy train trips, a journey around Britain on a luxury train through areas of castles and breathtaking landscapes is a good choice for this day!

This trains formed of comfortable and restored Pullman coaches originally from the 1920-50s. Chic and glamorous are those words to describe the interiors. Romance guaranteed :)

Consider a non-stop round trip option with lunch, afternoon tea and dinner served on board.

British Pullman Train, operated by Belmond, isn't the only destination. If you'd like go further, the company offers trains accross Europe with arrivals in Paris, Venice, Rome and more (aka Venice Simplon-Orient-Express).

By the way, you might remember this company if you ever been to Machu Picchu. Those beautiful expresses are running in Peru, too.

3. Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland

What could be better seeing the northern lights? Is watching it with your friends. And double better - with your beloved one!

You won't find more cozy place to share these moments than the hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland (Saariselka village). Best option to choose are Glass Igloos, made of glass half-spheres which stands in snowy forest.

Laying on a warm bed under the stars, watching a spectacular nature performance - perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day. Truly an unforgettable experience.

best for: romantic northern lights watching, winter travel

4. New York, New York

The city that never sleeps can offer an option for everyone to mark February 14. It isn't hard to find romance in the Big Apple, even though New York is the crowded place to say the least.

Plan your activities to be in time everywhere. Ice Skating with holding hands at Rockefeller Center, city walks in Central Park among beautiful landscapes, especially nice if snowy or even tropical walk at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, regardless of weather.

Plus to it - visiting atop The Empire State Building for looking out at the city from high above. Enjoy a dinner at one of romantic NYC restaurants and watch a Broadway show together.

best for: walks, dinner, performances

5. Skiing in Switzerland

For active holidays lovers a downhill skiing among snowy evergreen trees which ends with a tasty and hot food, isn't romantically? Add here cozy seclusion near a fireplace, sharing Fondue made of Swiss cheese and romantic atmosphere completed.

Lucerne in Switzerland is a perfect option for such Mountain leisure and catching winter views. This cozy town lies right in the Swiss Alps. Expensive and picturesque, Lucerne will not leave you indifferent.

best for: crowded city escapes, winter travel

6. Sea resort. Canary islands, Maldives or Caribbean.

Many of us would love the idea of escaping winter cold and go to the beach for a week. Unless you live in a warmer climate :)

Sea, sun and greens around sounds great on contrast with snow. Thus any destinations mentioned above would be a good variant if you choose to warm up a bit on Valentine's. Walking along the sea coast, a romantic dinner under the sound of the surf and the salty breeze are must haves in this case.

So Canary islands as well as Maldives and Caribbean all has the soft climate in winter with an average temperature of about 20-28C. Also colorful landscapes guaranteed. Best choice here is shorter flight. Canary islands are closer to Europe, Caribbean to Americas and Maldives are in the Indian Ocean.

best for: sea vacation

7. Venice, simply gorgeous

Needless to say that a gondola boat ride on the Grand Canal in Venice suits as an optimal option for Valentine's. Floating through Venetian canals among stunning architecture of numerous palaces will easily dips you into romance.

Add here unhurried walks on beautiful Piazzas, famous Italian food and Venice in this list by right!

As a big bonus will be those years when February 14th fall on time of the Venetian Carnival. Like in 2017. Crowded - yes, but the atmosphere of medieval festivity worth it. And even so there is still retired spots to be found in the city: a little cafe or gondola.

best for: romantic atmosphere

P.S.
I'm sure you know that an important here is your attention not the price ;) Happy travels!
