A honeymoon is something all newlyweds look forward to. It’s a well-deserved break together after the stresses of wedding planning, and a chance to take some time to do exactly what you want to do.
For some, the idea of a honeymoon means lazy days on the beach and cocktails by the pool. While for others it’s a little more adventurous. Cue the rise of the adventuremoon. If you’re more sunset safaris than sunbathing, an adventuremoon will be right up your street. They are a great opportunity to tick a few things off your bucket list, so if you’ve always wanted to; zip line in Sri Lanka, hike in Peru or kayak in Fiji, your honeymoon is the perfect opportunity to jump headfirst (quite literally) into it. So the hardest decision you’ll have to make is, where will your adventure begin?
If you need a little inspiration, here’s a few of our top picks:
Fiji offers a true ‘adventure in paradise’ experience. If watersports are your thing, Fiji should be top of your list. If you’ve always wanted to swim with sharks, ride a jet ski or snorkel with tropical fish, why not do it in the crystal blue waters of the South Pacific?
The Galapagos Islands are the perfect place for couples who don’t like being in the same spot for too long. You can take a 6-day island hopping tour to explore the unique charm of each beautiful island. Spend the day at the Giant Tortoise wildlife reserve or take a private boat tour to spot the famous Galapagos penguins.
Peru has amazing tracks and trails that are a hiker’s dream. Whether you hire a bike or would rather walk, the landscape of Peru is simply spectacular. You can explore the ancient history of Machu Picchu with a 4-day adventure, or take a trip to the incredible Amazon jungle. A great insider tip is to visit the less well-known places, such as the stunning rainbow mountains or take a trek to the Lost City of Choquequirao, which will reward you with the most breath-taking views in Peru.
Cape Town offers phenomenal food, great shopping and a chance to really immerse yourself in local culture. Tours of the beautiful nature reserves are a must, and the ‘Big 5’ all day Safari is a unique chance to see amazing wildlife in their natural habitat. We’d also recommend taking a trip to the top of Table Mountain in a cable car, which slowly rotates so you get the best views from every angle.
Abu Dhabi is an adventure all of its own. You can be riding rollercoasters at Ferrari World by day and taking a moonlight cruise by night. Before starting the next day with some white water rafting and quad biking thrown in for good measure. One of the most popular excursions here is the all-day Desert Safari, which includes a camel ride, sandboarding and an amazing BBQ.
