Honeymoons for Adventure Lovers

If you’re the kind of couple who get bored lying on the beach and want to make the most of your honeymoon time with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, then there are plenty of great options for you to have an adventure filled honeymoon.

The key with an adventure honeymoon is to know your limits. Do you like soft adventure (for instance going on safari, driving around Australia or heading to off-the-beaten-track kind of places) or are you adrenalin junkies looking for heart-pumping thrills (like bungee-jumping and skiing in New Zealand, trekking through the Thai jungle or diving for South Pacific wrecks)? Make sure you both chat about what you like (and don’t like), choose the right kind of adventure for both of you and you’re guaranteed a fantastic time.

If the thrill of seeing animals in the wild is what you’re after, then a South Africa honeymoon, BotswanaKenya or a honeymoon in Tanzania on safari – you won’t be disappointed (see our safari/beach section for ideas). Depending on how busy you want to be you could choose a lodge that offers extra activities such as guided walks and bike rides. You could also combine game viewing with a spot of diving in Zanzibar or Mozambique or go on a surfing trip around South Africa. Sri Lanka also offers a great alternative to a Safari in Africa, with over 20 National Parks you can head out on Game Drives and spot Elephant, Leopard, Sloth Bear and a variety of species of birds. Combine a few nights in the Cultural Triangle before heading to the Maldives

Another idea is to get out and about and go on a road-trip. Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Sri Lanka are all fantastic places to get out and explore with the advantage that you can be as active or as inactive as you want to be. Go surfing, trekking, hiking, biking – you name it – and if you’re travelling at the right time of the year in Australasia you can even add skiing and snowboarding into the mix.

Of course, adventure doesn’t have to mean physical exertion, it can mean visiting fascinating countries with a rich cultural heritage. Cambodia, VietnamLaos and Thailand are all fabulous honeymoon destinations with their own distinctive histories and attractions. Oman offers a cultural change to the city lights of Dubai. A honeymoon in any of these countries will feel like an adventure for the soul and offer you countless opportunities to see ancient ruins, learn about different cultures and, if you’re feeling active, go trekking, elephant-riding or cycling in the wild. These can all easily be combined with a few days on the beach, as after all, it is likely that you’ll want some time to relax!

Don’t forget to check out the details of our Honeymoon gift list service, which allows friends and family to contribute towards travel experiences as well as the more traditional gift list items, all in one place. A complimentary service for all Turquoise honeymoon couples and looked after by a full time team, it’s just one of the ways we can ensure your dream honeymoon, becomes a reality.
