Adventurous Honeymoon DestinationsWords by Cora Gold
Photos courtesy of Canva Planning your wedding can be exciting, but it’s even more fun to imagine where you’ll go on your honeymoon. It’s supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, so go somewhere you usually wouldn’t vacation. These are five honeymoon destinations and activities for adventurous couples who want to experience a romantic adventure after finishing their vows.
Consider what your significant other would love to do with you while you’re away from home. Whether you crave an adrenaline rush or the perfect scenic picture for Instagram, these locations are the ideal places to celebrate your marriage and all the new adventures your future holds.
1. The Galapagos Islands
Getaway to a volcanic island chain that inspired new studies into remote ecosystems. The Galapagos Islands are just off the coast of South America and host numerous tourists every year. After arriving at your hotel, you can experience an eco-tour to see wildlife or swim in the cerulean waters along the shore. It’s also a cruise ship destination if traveling by boat is more your style.
2. Marrakech, Morocco
Marrakech has everything an adventurer could want. The city’s vibrant colors and aromatic smells engage the senses while you go on camel rides together or soak in public baths. Make sure you check out pop-up shops on the city streets and tour historic palaces to learn more about the romantic destination.
3. Prince William Sound, Alaska
If you and your partner can’t get enough time in nature, you’ll love Prince William Sound. It’s part of Alaska’s Chugach National Forest and contains 150 glaciers. The crystal clear waters between snowy mountains make it the perfect place to kayak the days away, especially since you might spot humpback whales and sea lions while you’re out on the water.
4. Golden Triangle, Thailand
Visitors to the Golden Triangle often stay in luxury tented accommodations that make glamping look quaint. Pack a backpack and set out for jungle adventures, boating journeys and even four-wheeling over wild stretches of land.
Between visits to temples and other historical sites, the local food will amaze your taste buds and make you wish you didn’t have to go back home. It’s a destination so budget-friendly, you could stay for over a week with less than $2,000 in your honeymoon budget. Make every dollar count towards incredible adventures and a lifetime of memories.
5. Inle Lake, Myanmar
Inle Lake is one of the most iconic destinations in Myanmar. Buddhist temples grace the skyline around the lake and calm waters reflect every gorgeous sunset. Visitors often tour the ancient stupas built into the nearby hillsides and dine at lakeside restaurants after boating all day. It’s a tranquil resort destination that immerses you in the local history.
Find Your Dream Honeymoon Destination
Honeymoons don’t always have to be about spa appointments and beachside hotel rooms. You can make your honeymoon whatever you want, especially if you’re looking for adventure with your future spouse. These destinations are perfect for the most adventurous couples, so research all the places to explore and things to do before finalizing the trip that will kick off your marital bliss.
