Your honeymoon will be one of the most memorable holiday experiences of your life, so why not do something a little out of the ordinary? There are countless unusual, exciting, and adventurous honeymoon ideas out there; below, we explore our favourites.
Glamping in the beauty of the British countryside
If you’re the bohemian sort, looking for an inexpensive and relaxing honeymoon, then you might enjoy ‘glamping’ (glamourous camping) in Devon’s pretty countryside. The company Our Yurts provide self-catered Mongolian yurts; situated by a tranquil lake, which is home to a variety of interesting wildlife.
Glass igloo hotel in the Antarctic
By booking yourself a honeymoon stay in a glass igloo, you can enjoy the warmth and comfort of a hotel and experience the natural beauty of the northern lights and the Antarctic’s snowy landscape.
Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is based close to the Arctic Circle, sporting some gorgeous glass igloos that boast beautiful views of the starry sky. We suggest trying to book for the aurora season, when the sky is lit up with stunning colours, which runs from August to April.
Explore the buzz and beauty of Japan
Rich in culture and natural beauty; Japan combines adventure, culture, and nature for a unique and memorable honeymoon experience. Tokyo is an exciting city; brightly-lit streets and towering skyscrapers give the city a futuristic, other-worldly feel. Nestled within the techno-coloured streets, you’ll find the remnants of old Japan: old temples, beautiful gardens, and busy local markets.
For those planning a spring wedding, Japan is especially beautiful during its cherry blossom season; when the trees explode with beautiful pink blossoms. For more scenic natural beauty, many seek out the towering Mount Fuji: Japan’s highest mountain.
Arctic diving in the Antarctic
Scuba diving is a popular honeymoon activity for many couples, who enjoy exploring the world of tropical fish beneath azure waters in the classic sunny honeymoon destinations. An alternative to diving deep in a warmer climate, is to explore the other-worldly waters of the arctic with an arctic dive.
Husky safari in Finland
Imagine exploring striking snowy landscapes on a sledge pulled by a team of husky dogs. Husky safaris are a thrilling way to celebrate your honeymoon; after a short induction, you and your partner will be given command of the pack and free rein to explore the beauty of Finland.
Explore the unknown
Your honeymoon is a wonderful time to explore a completely unique location and to indulge in exciting and adventurous activities that you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to partake in. As Julia Walsh, @MyDomaine, illustrates “there are countless stunning and unforgettable places to visit in this big wide world, so don’t feel obligated to buy a ticket to one of the handful of newlywed meccas you know about”.
