Heading Into Nature For An Alternative Honeymoon


If you’re planning your wedding, chances are you have some idea of the kind of honeymoon you’d like. Perhaps you’re dreaming of golden sands, azure waves, and hammocks that rock gently in the breeze; or maybe city tours, cocktails on the terrace, and historical sites are more your style. If you and your significant other share a love of travel and adventure, why not consider something a little bit different for your first vacation as a married couple? The world is your oyster, as they say, so it’s time to see it together; the natural world is an incredible place.

Zambia, Africa

There’s a good chance you’ll have seen pictures of the breathtaking ‘Devil’s Pool’ on social media, so why not explore Zambia’s Victoria Falls for yourself? As if the torrents of water weren’t spectacular enough, thousands of years of weathering have left rock pools along the falls’ edge; you will feel as though you’re swimming to the edge of the earth. Zambia is also a fantastic destination for those that enjoy navigating white water rapids, exploring miles of National Parks, enjoying a safari and getting up close and personal with nature.


Do you enjoy diving, and long for crystal clear waters and more fish than you can count? Fiji is often heralded as a diver’s paradise and it isn’t hard to see why; an entire ocean to explore, hot white sands, and swaying palm trees await you in this heaven on earth. One of the best things about a honeymoon in Fiji is that it offers a bit of everything. You can relax by the beach, take a gentle stroll in the sea’s swell and enjoy cocktails as the sun sets, but you can also dive right into adventure. Snorkel in the shallows, take a boat around the islands or romp through the forest – discover your own paradise.


If you’re fans of the chillier things in life, a honeymoon in Finland may just be your thing. What’s more romantic than an evening snuggled in front of a roaring fire, taking a sleigh ride through the forest, or marveling at the Northern Lights together? A world of adventure awaits you in the snowy peaks of Finland including dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, whale watching, stargazing, and trekking through the snow, as well as quaint wooden lodges and igloos that you’ll fall in love with.

Staying Closer to Home

Planning a wedding can be an expensive business, and a lavish ceremony and reception for friends and family can seriously limit your honeymoon budget, but it is still possible to have an amazing post-wedding break. Going abroad for your honeymoon isn’t obligatory, and you can have a great time very close to home – just think about all of those places that you’ve never been to.

Imagine the scene: breathtaking mountain scenery, opportunities to hike, bike, and horseback ride, cool crisp air and heaps of snow that’s ready and waiting for skiing and boarding. Welcome to Aspen, Colorado – your gateway to the Rocky Mountains.

For a different type of vacation, you could try magical Las Vegas – Sin City – a metropolis that never sleeps. Just outside its neon Strip is a whole desert for you to explore, including the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam. You won’t be disappointed.
