Add to favorites
  • As the sun begins to set, you and your partner are on your way to Elk Island National Park. You find a secluded spot to lay down your blanket and set up your telescope. The night falls and billions of stars begin to sparkle in the clear night sky. Together, you watch the constellations and planets, share stories about Greek mythology, or just enjoy the silent beauty of the universe.
  • The Milky Way crosses right over Elk Island National Park, and if you're lucky you might even spot the Northern Lights. This is a profoundly moving experience that is shared just between the two of you, far away from the lights and noise of the city.
  • As the evening comes to an end, you pack up and make your way back home. Filled with the shared experience of the universe's grandeur, this date will surely leave a deep and lasting impression.

Preparation steps:

  • Before you embark on this celestial adventure, make sure to check the weather forecast for clear skies. Dress warmly, bring a blanket and pillow, and don't forget your binoculars or a telescope if you have one.
  • You can pack a picnic or some snacks to enjoy under the starlit canopy. Also, consider bringing a constellation map to guide your stargazing exploration. Make sure to arrive at the park before the sun sets so you can pick out your perfect spot.
  • Although the park is open for stargazing all year long, keep in mind that it gets very dark out there, and it might be a good idea to bring a flashlight. Although part of the fun is letting your eyes adjust to the darkness, a flashlight can be handy.
