Would you like to fall in love all over again? Experience a completely different kind of Saint Valentine’s Day? Here are a few ideas to enjoy a really unforgettable getaway in the heart of the Rias Baixas.
For the lively ones: Tapas + night life.
For those looking for a livelier weekend, take a trip to Vigo’s historical quarter; home to a wide variety of tapas bars where you can taste the best of our typical local dishes and gastronomy. Make a toast and ask for your heart’s desire with one of our special liqueurs as you get ready to go out on the town in the “city that never sleeps.”
For the stressed out: Spa + Skyline terrace.
Not everything has to be about work. Vigo offers a number of urban spas where guests can enjoy treatments for couples that will leave you both completely rejuvenated. Enjoy finishing the evening off with a cocktail at the bar–Skyline terrace at the Gran Hotel Nagari where you can really “feel in seventh heaven” whilst enjoying an incredible view over the city and its Ria.
For the bohemian: Galicia Maritime Museum + Bouzas
A visit to Galicia’s Maritime Museum is one of the best ways to really understand the close relationship between Vigo and the Atlantic. The lighthouse is an absolute must-see and a wonderful spot from where to appreciate the other lighthouses, old canning factories, beaches, boats and seafarers in the surrounding area.
The maritime quarter of Bouzas is close by and a fabulous place to get lost among the narrow streets whilst taking a stroll, and naturally stopping off to enjoy the purest and most authentic Maritime cuisine in one of the many local traditional taverns.
For the adventurous: Trip by air balloon or small plane.
Do you need to release some adrenalin? Surprise your partner with some real excitement for Saint Valentine’s Day. A morning sunrise viewed from a hot air balloon or the sunset over the Ria de Vigo from a light airplane. And if you are also a fan of photography, be sure to take your camera. You don’t often get a chance to capture such unique landscapes and moments as these. Do you dare?
