For the adventurous lovers, Yorkshire offers an array of outdoor activities that are suited for romance, from hot air balloon rides to scenic hikes through the countryside, couples can embark on adventures to keep the spark alive.

Hot air balloon rides

Choose an adventure of a lifetime and tick off an “out of this world adventure” by booking a hot air balloon ride, making your day one to remember.

Yorkshire Balloon Flights gives you the opportunity to plan a special exclusive flight for two, premium anytime flights or a weekday sunrise flight. A pioneer in the world of hot-air ballooning, the company was founded by the late Tom Donnelly. Over time, once an unconventional pursuit, hot air balloon rides have evolved into a sought-after experience for individuals commemorating special occasions or seeking the pleasure of a panoramic view across diverse landscapes.

County fairs and festivals

The skies are not for everyone, the county fair or a festival are also a great way to explore the York countryside and keep you grounded.
