If you’re more of an adrenaline junkie than a beach lover, these adventurous honeymoon ideas are sure to capture your imagination
While some newlyweds prefer to lounge around in a luxury hotel on their honeymoon, for some it’s more exciting to go off the beaten path and embark on a new challenge together. Here are some daring adventurous ideas to get you started
Go interrailing in Europe
If you don’t want to go too far from home, travelling around Europe is a great option. It has something to offer everyone: adventure, culture, food, and shopping. Moreover, the excellent train systems make it particularly easy to traverse the continent.
This mode of transportation is also quite romantic on its own! Nothing can beat watching the scenery change from sunny, palm tree-laden regions to snow-capped mountains while you’re seated beside your significant other.
If you are honeymooning on a budget, getting a Eurail Pass might save you some money; it’s certainly worth researching the most cost-effective routes, so that you can spend the extra money on excursions and romantic meals.
Take a cross-country road trip across America
The United States boasts of some beautiful sights. The vastness of the country offers exciting possibilities and you can personally curate your itinerary to suit your preferences.
The individual states and cities comes with their own culture and personality, too, so you can make your honeymoon a fascinating study in the Americana. From the west coast to the east coast, there should never be a dull moment on your trip!
Go dancing in Latin America
Honeymooners have plenty of choices when traveling across Latin America – don’t limit yourself to Rio de Janeiro.
Aside from its amazing natural wonders, why don’t you and your partner take some dancing lessons? You’ll have a great deal of fun and will even be able to impress your friends when you get home!
As a tip, it might be a good time to brush up on Spanish to make the most out of your trip. If you’re overwhelmed by the amount of amazing places to visit, get some help from travel companies such as The Latin America Travel Company, who can advise on where will suit you best and can help with your itinerary.
Go trekking in Nepal
Trekking is a great activity that will physically challenge and reward you with beautiful scenery. Regardless of the season, we have no doubt that you will be amazed by the natural wonders of Nepal.
The most popular trails happen to be on Mt. Everest and the Annapurna mountain ranges. Not confident about your physical fitness or running short on time? Luckily, there are many treks that you can opt to take and each one varies in length and difficulty.
Explore the Philippines
This vast archipelago is a great destination for adventurous and active newlyweds. This beautiful country offers a plethora of things to do and innumerable islands to visit. Canyoneering, scuba diving, surfing, and cliff diving are just some of the activities that you can try out over here, and as a bonus, the people speak great English so it’s easy to communicate with the locals.
Take an African Safari
There’s simply something romantic about the tropical beaches and endless savannahs in Africa. Moreover, we daresay that the African continent is simply unrivalled when it comes to enjoying everything the wild has to offer.
Indulge in romance and adventure as you embark on a safari, regardless of whether it’s a game drive or a walking tour. There’s just something magical about observing animals in their natural habitat up close.
Regardless of which destination you choose, make sure to consider both of your preferences! A honeymoon adventure is meaningless if only one of you is having fun – so be sure you’re both up for something more than just lounging on the beach.
